They live in sea or fresh water. There are some that do live on land. Crustaceans live in deep oceanic trenches that can be 10,000m deep. They also live in mountain lakes or sunny tropical beaches. First I will talk about their body structures and then about obtaining oxygen and what they eat.
The level of osmotic pressure is equal in the intracellular fluid, and the extracellular fluid.’ (Study.com, 2015) ‘Osmotic pressure is vital within the human body because it allows water to enter a cell if there is lack of water, and vice versa, if there is too much water within one cell, the osmotic pressure will allows the electrolytes to exit a cell.’ (Study.com, 2015) ‘Intracellular fluid has important functions, it transports food within the cells, it also brings waste products from the cells so that they can be picked up and excreted from the body, and it maintains the shape and size of the cell.’ (Nursing411.org, 2015) ‘Extracellular fluid is located outside the body cells. The extracellular fluid consists of one-third of the water contained in the body. The extracellular fluid has many functions; it carries nutrients and oxygen to the body cells and waste materials from the cells. There are two types of extracellular fluid, including interstitial fluid and intravascular fluid.’
Later these holes evolved into slits and gills which also helped in the respiratory system of the animal. The endostyle is homologious trait and is involved in filter feeding. In the chordated it is located on the floor of the pharynx. This glandular groove accumulates food particles and pass them also the digestive tract. It helps in iodine metabolism.
The buoyancy allows the cuttlefish to hover over the floor of the oceans. The siphuncle is highly modified, running on the ventral side of the shell. Although the cuttlebone is unique to the cuttlefish, it does have a minor set back. Between the depth of 200 and 600 meters the cuttlebone can implode. Because of this factor cuttlefish have adapted to the seafloor in shallow marine waters as their habitat.
Once they’ve hatched, the young look like miniature adults. Where as spawn of an amphibian is aquatic larva. Enclosed by a soft gel exterior making them substantial prey for underwater hunters. Amphibians spend the first part of their life in water. There for they’re born with gills and go through metamorphosis to grow lungs and limbs.
The plants release dissolved oxygen and harbor fish and shellfish (Franklin, 2001). They swim in large schools close to the water’s surface. Throughout the spring, the schools of younger, smaller fish are found in estuaries, such as the Chesapeake Bay, and the larger, older fish are found further offshore and up north. Menhaden also play an important role to the fisheries, especially along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Humans don’t actually
2. Dorsal tubular nerve cord * Develops into the brain and spinal cord of the adult. * in most invert groups; nerve cord is ventral & paired * in chordates the nerve cord is a single dorsal hollow nerve cord * front end usually enlarged to form brain 3. Pharyngeal (gill) slits Water enters through the mouth and passes out through the slits in the pharynx, without going through the digestive system. i. Slits function as suspension-feeding devices in many invertebrate chordates ii.
They are a source of food and medicine, and they protect the coast from wave erosion. Profile of coral reef with typical reef "zones" Corals are marine animals related to jellyfish and anemones. Both colonial and solitary corals catch plankton (microscopic plants and animals) and other suspended food particles with arm-like tentacles, which feed a centrally located mouth. Most hard corals also host symbiotic algae, a long-standing and successful partnership. These algae provide them with an additional food source through photosynthesis.
A study on this topic was done to explore how much of an impact these tiny animals have on the ocean currents as they travel in masses. The thought behind this was the mere through of how many of these organisms are contained in our bodies of water, and how larger singular mammals such as jellyfish can move sizable amounts of water by swimming (Lee, 2014, p.1). The study performed was a test with a small organism called brine shrimp, or the nickname “Sea Monkeys”. “Wind-and tide-driven currents move nutrients, heat, and salt around the ocean, and help to regulate the planet's temperature, Dabiri says. In recent years, scientists have started to seriously consider whether collective animal movements—like plankton swimming up and down en masse—could also be contributing to currents” (Lee, 2014, p.1).
They can often be found buried in silty or muddy areas in the lower parts of the intertidal zone (Fig. 1). Most marine worms are in osmotic equilibrium with the sea in which they live; i.e., their body fluids are approximately isoosmotic to seawater. However, the water of the intertidal zone is not always identical in salinity to that of the open sea. Both runoff of fresh water from the land and rainfall may dilute water along the seashore.
