Other crustaceans attach the embryos to endites on the bases of the legs or to the pleopods (Figure 16.32F), usually using a mucus secreted by specialized glands. Some insects can discriminate among different sound frequen- cies, but others are tone-deaf. Metabolic relationships between green hydra and its symbiotic algae. Some dorid nudibranchs also utilize their prey in re- markable ways. The new animal phylogeny: Reliability and implications. In order to accomplish this, the limbs must be long enough to hold the body high off the ground, but not so high as to endanger stability.

A variety of secondary asym- metrical modifications of bilateral (and radial) symme- try have occurred, for example, the spiral coiling of snails and hermit crabs. Again, water passing through this chamber flows over the ctenidia, anus, gonopores, and nephrid- iopores. Other euglenids, however, are environmental pests, and some have been shown to produce toxic substances which have been associated with diseases in trout fry. They generally copulate, and their embryos undergo direct development.

She is particularly interested in the study of adaptive traits, and their potential role in linking genetic markers for species identification with genes of biological significance in maintaining species boundaries. There are many more that have never been seen and are still unknown to science. Many nemerteans show remark- able powers of regeneration, and nearly all species can regenerate at least posterior portions of the body.

In this group, the ga- metes are anisogametous, the male gamete being smaller than the female gamete. The historical and evolutionary forces acting on inverte- brates (and their larvae) are highly complex. Sponges collect food particles from water passing through food-trapping equipment.
