Learning Objectives Chapter 34: Vertebrates Concept 34.1: Chordates have a notochord and a dorsal, hollow nerve chord Describe the four derived traits that define the phylum Chordata o Notochord longitudinal, flexible rod located between the digestive tube and the nerve cord o Dorsal, Hollow Nerve Cord Nerve cord of a chordate embryo that develops from a plate of ectoderm Then rolls into a tube located dorsal to the notochord o Pharyngeal Slits or Clefts Pharyngeal Clefts- One of the grooves that separate a series of pouches along the sides of the pharynx May develop into a Pharyngeal Slit Pharyngeal Slits- One of the slits that form from the pharyngeal clefts and communicate to the outside Later develops into gills slits o Muscular, Post-Anal Tail Contains skeletal elements and muscles and helps propel many aquatic species in the water Distinguish among the three subphyla of the phylum Chordata and give examples of each o Cephalochordata Persistent notochord in the adult Large sac-like pharynx with gill slits for food collection and respiration Ex. Lancelets o Urochordata Chordate features (Ex. notochord and nerve chord) are only found in the larva Generally lost in the adult Adult secretes a tough cellulose sac in which the animal is embedded Ex.
