    Early Chordate Fossils

    Definition:

    Burgess Shale in British Columbia (540 MYBP): Pikaia gracilens- Chordate/Amphioxus- not a true chordate: no gills/myomeres are straight-not V-shaped Fish like- 5cm long Notochord, myomeres Earliest known: Chengjiang formation in China - (early 522 MYBP) discovered in 1990 Haikouella- Most vertebrate-like chordate that resembled amphioxus Chordate features- myomeres, notochord, and pharynx enclosed in atrium Vertebrate-like characteristics- large brain, clearly defined eyes, branchial bars of cartilage, gill filaments, heart, ventral and dorsal aorta Probably vertebrate sister group Oldest Known: Myllokunmingia and Haikouichthyes- (early Cambrian; 520 MYBP) More advanced chordates Small (3cm), fish-shaped Notochord and myomeres provide evidence being chordates Cranium, paired ear capsules, eye capsules at head are vertebrates- formed by neural-crest tissue Dorsal fin, gill pouches, filamentous gills, W-shaped myomeres Conodonts - cone teeth: Resembled amphioxus Greater cephalization, large eyes Teeth made of cellular bone, calcium phosphate crystals, calcified cartilage, enamel and dentin Apparatus (S/M elements) attached to tongue-like plate extended/grasp impaling prey (predators/scavengers) Food passed to pharynx where another set of dental elements sliced and crushed food V-shaped myomeres and notochord, caudal fin rays on postanal tail; dorsal nerve cord Debate on conodonts evolutionary fit General consensus- true vertebrates

    Vertebrate Origins

    Definition:

    Fossil Record: Provides little help Searching for ancestors in living groups- problematic (diverged MYA) Saint-Hillarie 1822: Proposed chordate body plan derived from flipped-over version of arthropods Hypothesis argued by Gaskell and Patten (late 19th century) Reasoning: Annelids and Arthropods share- Segmented body plan Brain regionalization (fore- and hind-) Basic chordate body plan; just upside down Ventral nerve cord/aorta become dorsal nerve cord/aorta Weaknesses: Similarities result from analogy not homology Nerve cord is solid (not hollow) developing embryologically Chordates mouth and anus positions are ventral (rolling annelid or arthropod over positions them upward); no embryological evidence for it in chordates Early fundamental development patterns differ in coelom formation, cleavage pattern, etc.
