Unformatted text preview: hree groups also share the classical protostome features (mouth developing from blastopore; 1 BIS 2C Winter 2014 mesoderm arising near lip of blastopore) as well as traits of the more inclusive Bilateria (bilateral symmetry; three embryonic cell layers). By thinking phylogenetically you come to appreciate that the characteristics are nested (just like taxa) and this economizes on information storage and retrieval. Repeated exposure is the best way to learn the features of different animal taxa. General biology Think about the linkages between reproduction, feeding, and the kinds of habitats occupied by different animals. Use the natural history information presented to you to trigger your own memories or experiences with these taxa. Draw connections across different groups. Is there a pattern to the distribution of internal versus external fertilization? In which taxa are hermaphrodites most common? What is the relationship between mode of metamorphosis and species diversity in insects? What traits are associated with the colonization of land by animals? Prokaryotes and Eukaryotic Microbes • Understand the major differences between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. • What is “lateral gene transfer?” Understand the similarities and differences between LGT...
