What is the function of each layer? 3 . Which layer is photosynthetic in a lichen? 4. What feature is shared between fungi and insect exoskeletons?

Why did the terms haploid (N) and diploid (2N) not suffice in this case? 6. Which of the following organisms belong to the group of cnidarians without a medusa stage in the life cycle? large ocean-going jellies sea anemones corals cubozoans the polyp stage of hydrozoans 7.
