Question:I need information on the phylums... Porifera Cnidaria Platyhelminthes nematoda mollusca annelida arthropoda echinodermata chorodata the meaning of the name, atleast two classes from that phylum, 3 common examples of species from that phylum, major living environments, economic importance of that phylum, unique characteristics ie: reproductive method, body parts, type pf symmetry. please dont give me a web site!!!!!!!!! best answer will be rewarded so try hard!

Answers:1. The correct word is "phyla," not "phylums." 2. You need to do your own homework. I would be happy to help with specific questions, but not an entire homework assignment.

Question:6 Kingdoms:(Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, Protista, Archaea, and Eubacteria)

Answers:Animalia:phylum porifera,cnideria,platyhelminthes,nematoda,annelida, and mollusca examples: hookworms,tapeworms, planarians,liver fluke,earthworms. Plantae:phylum bryophyta,hepaticophyta,anthcerophyta,lycophyta,and arthrophyta examples:club moss, quillwort,Boston fern, tree fern Fungi:phylum, zygomycota,ascomycota,basidiomycota and deuteromycota examples: penicillium,shelf fungi, puffballs, and mushrooms. Protista: Phylum Ciliophora,zoomastigina,sporozoa,sarcodina, and chrysophyta, also, chlorophyta and phaeophyta ( there are ALOT) Examples:Navicula,amoeba,paramecium Archaea:(sorry don't know this one) Examples: methanogens,thermoacidophilic bacteria, and salt-loving bacteria Eubacteria: (sorry don't know this one either) examples: blue-green bacteria,chemoautotrophs,prochlorobacteria, rickettsiae ------------------------------ Hope I helped a bit :D

Question:I have a project for school that my group has the Animalia Kingdom for and since our class is pretty big, we have the vertebrate half of the Animalia Kingdom and another group has the invertebrate half. My marine biology teacher is insisting that there are at least 5 phyla that make up the vertebrate part of the kingdom, but I can only find the chordata phylum. Does anyone know of another phylum that makes up vertebrates?

Answers:There's the one Phylum - Chordata - notochord present at some time disappearing early in many forms, either temporary or permanent paired gill slits; dorsal nerve cord. The Vertebrates are one of four subphylums under Chordata. There are seven Classes that make up the vertebrate part of the subphylum Cyclostomata ( example: lamprey eel - no true jaws, scales or fins) Chondrichthyes (Examples-sharks, rays) Osteichthyes ( bony fishes ) Amphibia Reptilia Aves Mammalia

Question:Warm or cold blooded? Respiratory system type of organs does it change during lifetime? What habitat can you find this group in? Do they migrate? Are they territorial? How do they obtain food? Give an example of a food chain including these animals. What type of reproduction is representative of this group? (Asexual, sexual, external, internal) eggs or live young? How many young at a time usually? How often do they reproduce in a year?

Answers:> Few questions about the Phylum Mollusca? One of my favorite things. They don't fly! > Warm or cold blooded? Cold > Respiratory system type of organs does it change during lifetime? Hmmm. The general answer is no. But for some marine snails which have a larval stage, yes. > What habitat can you find this group in? Most, LOL. You'll find them in pretty much all marine and permanent aquatic environments. You'll find them in terrestrial environments where there's moisture, or moist places. > Do they migrate? I can't think of any that migrate. > Are they territorial? Most aren't. Some of the octopus species are. Some of the cuttlefish are territorial around breeding time. > How do they obtain food? Most bivalves are filter feeders. Most gastropods crawl around, and rasp food from surfaces with the radula -- you'll find detrivores, herbivores, and even carnivores doing this in this group. Cephalopods actively hunt and swim after prey. > Give an example of a food chain including these animals. Marine phytoplankton -> zooplankton -> clam Marine phytoplankton -> zooplankton -> small fish -> squid -> large fish Lettuce -> snail -> human being === > What type of reproduction is representative of this group? Sexual reproduction. Bivalves: external fertilization, eggs. Gastropods: internal fertilization. Some gastropods lay eggs, and others give live birth. Cephalopods: internal fertilization, lay eggs. > How many young at a time usually? Bivalves: thousands. Gastropods: the ones that lay eggs will lay somewhere between a dozen and a couple hundred at a time. The ones that give live birth have one at a time. Cephalopods: hundreds. > How often do they reproduce in a year? Bivalves: Hm, I don't know. Total guess: they reproduce about 26 times a year, timed by the tides. Gastropods: The ones that lay eggs will do so whenever they have some to lay. If the weather is good, every couple of weeks, I'd guess. The ones that give live birth will do so continuously in good conditions -- the adult Malaysian trumpet snails in my aquarium would give birth each and every day. Cephalopods: Once a year, I think.
