Indicate whether the following statements are true or false. A for true, B for false. 1. All animals can be classified as either diploblastic or triploblastic depending upon the number of cell layers that develop in the embryo. 2. Cephalopods have the most advanced nervous system of any marine animal. 3. Single-lens image-forming eyes evolved three times in animals. 4. The most parsimonious tree for a given taxon-character matrix is the tree that requires the least amount of character state change. 5. If two taxa are sister groups then they must be of the same age. 6. The three largest orders of insects (Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, Lepidoptera) together account for about one quarter of the world’s described animal species. 7. Prototherians (echidnas, duck-billed platypus) are the sister group to the remaining mammals. 8. Because sponges are a paraphyletic group this provides more information about the ancestral character states of Metazoa than if sponges were monophyletic. 9. Recent molecular phylogenetic studies indicate that crustaceans, as traditionally defined, are paraphyletic. 10. Recent evidence suggests that the ratite birds (ostriches, rheas, emus, cassowaries and kiwis) form a clade but that they lost the ability to fly more than once. 11. The evolution of puffball or truffle-shaped fruiting bodies from a mushroom-shaped fruiting body is mostly likely an adaptation to dry conditions. 12. Chronic exposure to mycotoxins has been found to be associated with increased levels of liver
