What is Mesoglea
non living gel-like substance
the stinging organelles or cells are called
nameocysts are produced by
the covering atop the nematocysts is called the
The Operculum pops off when
the Cnidocil is touched
the Cnidocil is
a trigger on the Nematocysts
what is the main difference between the polyp for and medusae form of Cnidarians
polyps are not motile, medusae swim
how is the nervous sytem organized in cnidarians
it is a nerve net and it has no central nervous system
what occurs in the gastrovascular cavity
circulation gas exchange and excretion
What are the 4 Classes of Cnidarians
Hydrozoa, Scyphazoa, Anthezoans, Cubozoa
the Hydrazoans include
Hydras and Hydroid Jellyfish
what is another name for velum
what are the true Jellyfish
the Scyphazoa
in the Scyphazoans which stage is more dominant

Velum (acrespidote)
Hydrazoans unlike Scyphazoa has big one of this
Explian life cycle of medusa
Diocious Medusa, gamete production, fertilization to zygote, ciliated larva (planula), planula settles and forms Scyphastoma (young polyp), matures to Strobila, and Medusae bud-off (ephyrae)
Anthezoans are known to be

the Ctenophores are special in that their gut is
a One Way Gut!
What type of Symmetry do the Ctenophores exhibit
Ctenophores have an adhesive structures called
The Ctenophores nervous system is the form of
Complex Nerve Net
like the Cnidarians the Ctenophorans have what going on in the GVC
circulation and gas exchange and excretion
they are called comb jellys because
they have eight combrows
the combrows in the ctenophores are comprised of
the Ctenophores have no
