  Glass sponges (Class Hexactinellida) are important components of deep-sea ecosystems and are of interest from geological and materials science perspectives. The reconstruction of their phylogeny with molecular data has only recently begun and shows a better agreement with morphology-based systematics than is typical for other sponge groups, likely because of a greater number of . Different views regarding systematic position: 1. Gunther (): Sphenodon is the sole representative of an order of modern Reptilia, called Rhyncho­cephalia which equals in rank to other living orders. 2. Gadow (): He stated that the Rhynchocephalia and lizards should be placed in separate groups.

A sponge is a member of the phylum is a simple animal with many cells, but no mouth, muscles, heart or is sessile: it cannot move from place to place the way most animals can.A sponge is an animal that grows in one spot like most plants do. Nevertheless, sponges are quite successful. The basic body plan is a jelly-like layer sandwiched between two thin layers of cells.

now. The classification helps to assign a systematic position to newly described species. BASIS OF CLASSIFICATION Though different animals differ in their form and structure, there are some fundamental similarities in them such as arrangement of cells, .   Sponges (Porifera) are a group of animals that includes ab living species. Members of this group include glass sponges, demosponges, and calcareous sponges. Adult sponges are sessile animals that live attached to hard rocky surfaces, shells, or submerged objects.

Affinities And Systematic Position Of The Sponges. Description. This section is from the "" book, by. Affinities And Systematic Position Of The Sponges. Great doubts still exist as to the real relations and zoological place of the sponges; and though placed here with the Rhizo-poda, there are many considerations which render this collocation.

Research whilst compiling this book has uncovered a fauna about twice the size as that previously published in the literature and consequently Systema Porifera revises and stabilizes the systematics of the phylum to accommodate this new knowledge in a contemporary framework.

Practical tools (key illustrations, descriptions of character) are provided to facilitate the assignment of. Sponges were considered as plants because of their sedentary life for a long time.

Ellis in placed them in Animal Kingdom. Linnaeus placed porifera in zoophyta. In Robert Grant coined the word Porifera' and sponges are placed in it.

Sponges are a group of multicellular, cellular grade organisms. They are the lowest metazoan group. classification of sponges and spongiomorphs; pro viding a clear explanation of morphological characters, their importance to the taxonomy and systematics of each higher taxon, and to illustrate.

Taxonomy, in a broad sense the science of classification, but more strictly the classification of living and extinct organisms. The internationally accepted taxonomic nomenclature is the Linnaean system created by Swedish naturalist Carolus Linnaeus, who drew up rules for assigning names to plants and animals.

Systema Porifera is unique making sponge taxonomy widely available at the practical level of classification (genera, families, order). It is a taxonomic revision of sponges and spongiomorphis (such as sphinctozoans and archaeocyathans) based.

Euplectella is a genus of glass sponges which includes the well-known Venus' Flower Basket. Species. Euplectella aspera; Euplectella aspergillum; Euplectella crassistellata; Euplectella cucumer; Euplectella curvistellata; Euplectella gibbsa.

Because their spicular skeletons are rarely preserved, even if originally developed, the systematic position of most sphinctozoan genera is uncertain (Hartman et al. ) or they are classified. Sponge - Sponge - Classification: The general architecture of the skeleton is used to differentiate families, the particular combinations of spicular types to define genera, and the form and dimensions of single spicule types to differentiate species.

Other morphological characters include shape, colour, consistency, surface (smooth, rough, or conulose), and distribution and character of the. Each chapter is preceded by the taxonomy of the discussed phylum and/or the species to enable the reader to locate the systematic position.

Show less Invertebrate Embryology and Reproduction deals with the practical and theoretical objectives of the descriptive embryology of invertebrates, along with discussions on reproduction in these groups.

Chapter Exercise 3 of Biology Lab Manual (EN) book - Exercise 3 Aim: To study some selected animals on the basis of their external features Principle: Diversity among animal kingdom is enormous. A systematic study of such a huge number of animals would not have been possible without a proper classification.

Zoologists have identified sufficiently large number of animals varying from. A systematic classification of living things-- grouping of similar types together--is essential because of the immense numbers of kinds of plants and animals.

The scientific method of classification is based on observation of external and internal features such that-- The organisms of any one group resemble one another more closely than. described till now, the need for classification becomes all the more important. The classification also helps in assigning a systematic position to newly described species.

BASIS OF CLASSIFICATION Inspite of differences in structure and form of different animals, there are fundamental features common to various individuals in relation to the. Introduction. Sponges, phylum Porifera, are the oldest metazoan group still extant on our planet.

Their continued survival in vast numbers in Recent seas (and in freshwater habitats) is closely linked to the apparent adaptability of their bauplan to dramatic changes in environmental characteristics and competing biota.Sponges (Fig.

Sponges reproduce by sexual and asexual methods, which include fragmentation or budding; the production of gemmules is another asexual reproduction method, but is found only in freshwater sponges. Sponges are monoecious; depending on the species, production of gametes may be continuous through the year or dependent on water temperature.

The scientific ordering or systematic arrangement of living organisms in a hierarchical series of groups on the basis of their relationships (morphological, evolutionary and other characteristics) is called biological classification.

The system of assigning a scientific name consisting of two components (Genus and Species) to an organism is. The main purpose of taxonomic study is appropriate placing of an organism in a systematic frame work of classification.

This framework is called taxonomic hierarchy. By this the taxonomic groups are arranged in definite order, from higher to lower categories.The book pursues three primary goals: 1) generalization of all existing information on individual development of sponges, its classification and a statement according to taxonomical structure of Porifera; 2) revealing of heterogeneity of morphogenesis and peculiarities of ontogeneses in various clades of Porifera, and also their correlations.Bergey’s Manual of Systematic Bacteriology • 4 divisions – Distinguished by cell wall structure • 7 classes – 3 eubacterial – 4 archaeobacterial • Bacterial species – Population of cells with similar characteristics •Strain – Variation within a species – Race, clade (ex) E.
