Domains and Kingdoms 

Based on DNA comparisons

Domain Bacteri- prok. 

Domain Archaea- prok. 

Kingdom Eubacteria, also include cyanobacteria Kingdom Archaebacteria: snottites and extremophiles: very hot, salty,acidic habitats

Domain Eukarya – all made of eukaryotic cells    

Protista Fungus Plantae Animalia


Plant-like - algae: exs- diatoms, dinoflagellates, form base of marine food chain, produce a majority (70-80%) of oxygen we breath; seaweeds, etc.

Animal-like – protozoan: ciliates: exparamecium; flagellates: ex. - euglena; ameboid/form pseudopods: ex – ameba

Slime molds- are weirdos; moldy,slimy-like creepy, crawling masses, move along forest floor consuming dead matter.

FUNGUS      

Heterotrophic: saprophytic or parasitic Molds - exs: penecillin mold, bread mold, orange peel, strawberries, etc. Mushrooms and toadstools Yeasts Mildews- shower stalls Parasitic: toe nail fungus, athlete’s foot, jock itch, ringworm, yeast infections Thought for today: “The meek shall inherit the earth”.


Terrestrial, autotrophic, green Include:  Bryophyytes - mosses/liverworts- not vascular; reproduce by spores 

Tracheophytes-- are vascular  Ferns - produce spores instead of seeds  Gymnosperms- seed plants; conebearing; needle-like leaves; produce pollen  Angiosperms- seed plants; flowering/fruit bearing; also produce pollen 

monocots and dicots- two categories of angiosperms

Two types of Angiosperms 



Parallel vein pattern pinnate or palmate

# flower parts: 3’s

Stem veins: scattered ring

Seed sections


4 or 5 single


Transition to land- problems encountered by plants     

Support weight Protection from dessication Obtain nutrients from soil Transport nutrients to leaves Reproduction when no water available to transport sperm Withstand extreme fluctuations in temp., light, wind, humidity

4 adaptations for land existence, absent in most advance alga, present in earliest tracheophytes 

 

Protective layers around reproductive organs; sterile jacket cells Multicellular embryo retained in the female gametophyte Waxy cuticle Transport tubes/ “plumbing”


All animal diversity lab sheets are due by Thurs, 6/1/06!!!!!!!!! You can give them to me anytime before that if they are ready.

You must turn them in to me personally, your hand to mine.

I must check all sheets to make sure everything on them is legal. Anything not allowed will be pulled out. You will get them back on the day of the final exam AND USE THEM for any animal kingdom related questions/essays.

This packet will also receive a recorded lab grade.

Only animal kingdom notes allowed for final; no plant notes, etc.

TERMS - described and defined ď Ż

endoderm, ectoderm, central cavity, mesoglea, spicules, polyp, medusa, radial symmetry, bilateral symmetry, metamerism, closed circulation, visceral mass, mantle, book lungs, spiracles, tracheal tubes, cephalothorax, exoskeleton, endoskeleton, water vascular system, notocord, complete vs. incomplete metamorphosis

Bacteria 

Bacteria – cellular, prokaryotic   

Binary fission Conjugate and exchange plasmids Form spores when conditions are adverse Most are heterotrophic and beneficial: e.g. Most notorious are parasitic: TB, tetanus, syphylis, gonorrhea (clap), diptheria, staph infections, salmonella, strep throat


Intracellular parasites Outer coat of protein; inner core of nucleic acid Enter host cell, take over host cell’s metabolism, directing the cell to make new virus particles. Cell explodes or buds off new virus particles, killing the cell Exs: flu, colds, chicken pox, small pox, measles, hepatitis, ebola, HIV/aids, some cancers (cervical), meningitis, herpes,

Evolutionary Trends in land Plants 

 

Gametophyte dominance>>> sporophyte dominance No vascular tissue >>> xylem , phloem, vascular bundle Spores ->>>> seeds Archegonium/antheridium >>>cones>>flowers/fruit Flagellated sperm>>> sperm with no tail, package in pollen grains


ANIMALS- evolutionary trends  

 

Radial symmetry----- bilateral Nerve net------Cephalization, sense organs in front end----- well organize brain No limbs----- tetrapod----knuckle walker -------- bipedal, upright Segmentation: external vs. internal Cloaca------2 or 3 separate openings; -------urinary bladder

Evolutionary Trends -Transition to land   

Cutaneous respiration,etc. --- gills-lungs External fertilization ---- internal fertilization Eggs laid in water---Amniote (land) egg, in reptiles, birds, some mammals (monotremes) -----marsupial (pouch)--placental HEART: two-chambered (fish); 3chambered (amphibians); 3 + (reptiles); 4-chambered (birds and mammals) No coelum ---- pseudocoelum-- true coelum (body cavity)

Evolutionary trends (animals) 

No skeleton ----- hydrostatic----exo vs. endoskeleton (flexible vertebral column)

Face, brain and brain case

Poikilothermy (ectotherm) ---homeothermy (endotherm)

Evolutionary Trends (animals) 

Integumentatry system: smooth ----scales----- feathers------ hair/fur

Parental care

Uric acid excretion vs. Urea excretion

Unicellular (protista) ---- colonial ----tissue----- organs------ organ systems
