Midterm Study Guide – BSC2011L – FALL 2010 – Tschinkel Going to write this study guide in a way that should make it easy for you to recall the information during the practical because I know how the practical is going to work. The TA’s posted a huge review on Blackboard which I thought was incredible so if you want to study just that, it’s up to you. This is just a student’s perspective. You can use this as a study guide for the lecture primarily because there will be lots of definitions in here and NO images because the PowerPoint that they put up on blackboard does a great job of showing you images. It’s all up to you which one you want to use (I would use all the resources at my hand). First of all just know your basic phyla: Kingdom Animalia <- might be an easy question on the practical Phylum Porifera ( sponges , remember?) Phylum Cnidaria ( jellyfish , remember?) Phylum Platyhelminthes (worms that you can split apart and fed egg yolk to, remember?) Phylum Nemertina (worms with proboscis and a rhynchocoel , remember?) Phylum Nematoda (minor phyla and are free living round worms , remember?) Phylum Rotifera (minor phyla and have a corona (crown), remember?) Phylum Annelida ( segmented worms with tagmata, remember?) Phylum Arthropoda (remember? Well you should because it’s what you are doing this week) If you memorize just that up there, you will get like a couple of questions right because some of the questions are freebies and will ask you “What phylum does this specimen/organism belong to?” Here are some examples of the questions that will probably be on the practical: -Name the structure(s) indicated by the pointer and write down its function(s) -What phylum does this organism belong to? -What class does this organism belong to? -Name the structures that this organism uses for circulation/excretion/feeding, etc. -Which of these organisms is triploblastic, etc. -What is the coelomic condition of today’s phyla? -How many germ layers are present in this organism?

-IMPORTANT: One of the most important types of questions that you will see is the comparison questions. For example: Which of these organisms exhibit cephalization? Which of these organisms have a mesohyl? Which of these organisms are triploblastic? How many of the following organisms are Deuterostomes? Give the Letter(s) of all the organisms that have a CLOSED circulatory system. Etc. -Be ready for those types of questions and their answers: Acoelomates ( Platyhelminthes , Nemertina ) Pseudocoelomates ( Nematoda , Rotifera ) Eucoelomates ( Annelida , Arthropoda ) Incomplete Digestive System ( Cnidaria , Platyhelminthes ) Complete Digestive System ( Nemertina onwards) Cellular Level of Organization ( Porifera ) Tissue Level of Organization ( Cnidaria ) Organ Level of Organization ( Platyhelminthes onwards) Radial Symmetry ( Cnidaria ) -Now take a look at the PowerPoint that I attached because that should jog your memory a little. After you do that move on and get down to the definitions and blah info. Phylum
