    Zimmer, Carl. Examples-: Scoliodon dogfishChimaera ratfish. The pharynx is perforated by gill-slits. As the articular and quadrate become transformed into malleus and phylum Chordata book ear ossicles respectively, the articulation of the jaw is done by two pairs of investing bones—the squamosals of the upper jaw and the dentaries of the lower jaw Fig. The segmentation of annelids follows a spiral fashion, while in chordates the cleavage plane is radial or irregular. Almost identical twisted external ciliated bands are present.

    Eight comb rows of fused cilia. Include 2 orders, 2 families, 5 genera and 3 species. Pisces and 2. Entoprocta : A small phylum species of sessile benthic marine animals. They have a thick layer of blubber for insulation. They are marine filter-feeders, with some tunicates living attached to rocks for most of their lives except for a free-swimming larval stage.

    Cephalochordates and vertebrates are segmented, as are the annelids and their relatives; however, segmentation in the two groups probably evolved independently. The Subphylum Vertebrata is divided into two divisions: 1. It includes such improbable animals as sea squirts and salps practically along side fishes and mammals. This is a modified type of autostylic condition. There is no asexual reproduction. Acrania Protochordata : Gr.

Jeffries contends that they are chordates. Live on the sea floor benthicbuild chitinous tubes covered with mud or sand or bore into calcareous rock.

Classification of Phylum Chordata (With Characters)

Their larvae show typical chordate characteristics, but the adults have lost many of these organs, and what they do still have have become highly-modified.

In some terrestrial vertebrates, the tail also helps with balance, courting, and signaling when danger is near. Parasites and scavangers. Branchiostoma phylum Chordata book The theory of the origin of vertebrates from Branchiostoma appears to be convincing, because it fulfils the theoretical definition of a typical chordate organisation.

Cambrian to Recent. The atrium of lancelets probably evolved independently. Approximately 2, species. A dorsal tubular nerve cord is present. Gnathostomata having contrasting characters phylum Chordata book in Table 1. See Article History Alternative Title: Chordata Chordate, any member of the phylum Chordata, which includes the vertebrates subphylum Vertebratathe most highly evolved animals, as well as two other subphyla—the tunicates subphylum Tunicata and cephalochordates subphylum Cephalochordata.

At last, in brief it is said that beginning with an phylum Chordata book larva auricularia larva Garstang proposed a series of evolutionary stages that involved paedomorphosis and production of chordates Fig.

In holocephalians and lungfishes the typical autostylic condition is modified where the entire upper jaw becomes phylum Chordata book fused with the neurocranium. The tentacular crown of Phoronis resembles the tentaculated arms of Cephalodiscus.

These are: a. Sessile or semi-sessile habit, iii. To put more emphasis on the relationship between the echinoderms and the chordates, Garstang and De Beer have added more weight on the ancestry of the chordates from the echinoderm larva.

Classification of the Chordates. Both have a dorsal pore. Gastrotricha : another phylum of small aquatic animals, with about species.This course is about the phylum chordata.

It will help you in understanding the characterstic features of chordates. The course also includes the subgroups. You will learn about amphibians, fishes, birds, mammals and reptiles.

Due to great diversity in chordate forms, different schemes of classification have been proposed by a number of taxonomists from time to .Classifications of Phylum Chordata: Sub-Phylum 1.

Urochordata: (i) Adults pdf generally sedentary (fixed to substratum), (ii) This sub-phylum is also called Tunicata because the adult body is enclosed within a leathery test or tunic formed of a cellulose-like organic substance termed tunicin.PHYLUM CHORDATA The phylum Chordata includes many familiar animals such as fishes, frogs, snakes, birds, mammals and man.

Also included in this phylum, but bearing little resemblance to the above animal groups, are the tunicates and the lancelets. Chordates display the.Nov ebook,  · Phylum Ebook. Animals in the phylum Chordata share four key features that appear at some stage of their development: A notochord, or a longitudinal, flexible rod between the digestive tube and the nerve cord.

In most vertebrates, it is replaced developmentally by the vertebral column. This is the structure for which the phylum is named.
