Solitary ascidians are single, discrete individuals that can only reproduce sexually. Species may have separate sexes, but many are hermaphroditic. http://home.uchicago.edu/~egrey/images/S_montereyensis01_jpg.jpg TUNICATE diversity: Ascidiacea (sea squirts)
Social ascidians include species where genetically-identical individuals, or clones, that are vascularly connected to each other in some way. Each "zooid" or discrete unit has an incurrent and excurrent siphon. Social ascidians can reproduce both sexually and asexually. http://home.uchicago.edu/~egrey/images/Metandrocarpa_jpg.jpg TUNICATE diversity: Ascidiacea (sea squirts) TUNICATE
In Compound or colonial ascidians individual zooids are integrated in a gelatinous matrix to the extent of sharing a common excurrent siphon with neighboring zooids. These species often looks like blobs, but are actually hundreds or thousands of genetically identical individuals. Compound ascidians can reproduce both sexually and asexually. http://home.uchicago.edu/~egrey/images/Botryllus_dominant_jpg.jpg TUNICATE diversity: Ascidiacea http://www.ryanphotographic.com/images/JPEGS/Phallusia%20julinea%20Australia.jpg TUNICATE diversity: Ascidiacea TUNICATE TUNICATE diversity: Ascidiacea TUNICATE diversity: Ascidiacea http://www.ryanphotographic.com/ascidians.htm TUNICATE diversity: Ascidiacea TUNICATE diversity: Ascidiacea
Megalodicopia hians: only free living carnivorous sea squirt. TUNICATE diversity: Thaliacea 1) Free floating through out entire life span 2) Filter feeders 3) Movement by jet expulson of water from siphon TUNICATE diversity: Appendicularia or Appendicularia Larvacea 1) 2) Solitary Free swimming throughout life cycle 3 ) Morphology resembles ascidian tadpole larva with trunk and tail 4 ) Notochord 5) Dorsal nerve chord UROCHORDATES (Tunicata): adult body plan traits 1) Lack of segmentation 2) Coelom reduced to pericardial cavity and gonads 3) Most organs enclosed by epicardium which is surrounded by mesenchyme Ascidians: basic body plan traits of adult stage
1. Integument: The 1. internal anatomy of ascidians is surrounded by a body wall made up of fibers and a carbohydrate known as tunicin. This body wall is called a tunic and hence the common name for ascidians "Tunicate". http://home.uchicago.edu/~egrey/ascidian_biology.htm Ascidians: basic body plan traits of adult stage
2. Digestige system: nearly all species sessile suspension feeders. Water enters through the incurrent siphons and passes through the mucouscovered pharynx (on which the food is trapped) and then exits through the excurrent siphon. The endostyle, an organ thought to be the precursor to the thyroid gland, produces the mucous, which is rolled up and ingested along with any food that has been trapped in it. A new net is then secreted over the pharynx and the process starts all over again.

In the first part of the film the centrosome can be observed as a clear zone in front of the interphase nucleus . Led by the centrosome, the nucleus stretches and migrates near the posterior cortex. In the second part of the movie (from 11 seconds), the nuclei are already positioned near the cortex. After nuclear breakdown two CABs are visible as a smooth moustache-shaped zone. One spindle pole in each cell approaches the CAB and unequal cleavage ensues. DIC time lapse microscopy. Frames were collected every 10 seconds and are displayed at a rate of 30 per second.
