1. What is one advantage that an animal with any kind of coelom (pseudo or true) has over an animal without a coelom? Describe the advantage and explain why both the true coelom and the pseudocoelom can provide that advantage. An advantage for an animal that has any kind of coelom is that since a coelom is fluid-filled, the coelom serves as a hydrostatic skeleton. This means that the fluid pressure will keep the animal from collapsing on itself. Since fluids can usually not be compressed, when the muscles around them contracts, they are able to move to another part of the cavity. A true coelom is enclosed on the outside and inside with mesoderm(muscles) while a pseudocoelom has mesoderm just on its outside, meaning that a true coelom animal has more control over the movement of the fluids in its body cavity than an animal with a pseudocoelom. 2. 1. You study an organism that has a body cavity that develops between the endodermal and mesodermal tissues. What kind of organism could this be? A) a jellyfish B) an earthworm

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
