Lichens are symbiotic associations between a photoautotroph (either green algae or cyanobacteria) and a fungus (usually an ascomycete).

II. Eukarya (invertebrates) Oldest animal fossils are from 565-550 mya: Ediacaran biota from Australia Molecular clock estimates suggest older animals but fossils that would confirm this have yet to be found.

Cenozoic era (65.5 mya - present): rise of large mammalian herbivores and predators Further diversification of insects and angiosperms - evidence of coevolution Diversification of birds Hominids evolve

OTHER EUKARYOTES Choanoflagellates Sponges Animals Other animals Individual choanoflagellate Collar cell (choanocyte) What traits define animals ? Several lines of evidence support the hypothesis that animals and unicellular choanoflagellates share a most recent common ancestor: (1) Molecular homologies at the gene level (2) Collar cells in animals and unicellular choanoflagellates are nearly identical (3) Similar collar cells have been identified in other animals

What traits define animals ? - all animals are chemoheterotrophs that ingest living or non-living organic matter and digest it internally with enzymes - multicellular eukaryotes that lack cell walls; cells supported by structural proteins (e.g., collagen) and skeletons
