[PL] Carter, H. J. (), On New Species of Hydractiniidae, Recent and Fossil and On the Identity in Structure of Millepora Alcicornis with Stromatopora. Ann. & Mag. Sponges are among the oldest species on Earth. Sponges are a class of aquatic invertebrates that includes coral. 2. When a sponge is able to grow back after part of it is released for reproduction. sponge species can thrive at a particular site, ecological interactions can play substantial roles influencing distribution and abundance, and thus diversity. Ecological interactions can modify the influences of abiotic factors both by further constraining distribution and abundance due to .   Hexactinellida (glass sponges, bodies are arranged intricate patterns) genus example:Euplectella. Calcarea (have Calcium Carbonbate skeletons) genus example: Clathrina. Demospongiae(have silicate or Calcium-based fibers intermixed with soft tissues) genus examples: Xestospongia, Acarnus.

Sea sponges are not plants as many people believe. They are the most primitive animals on the planet. Sponges are multi-cellular but they do not have any organs, muscles or nerves.

Well, the sea sponge is in the phylum Porifera. Different species of sponge will be in different genus. You'll need a specific species before you can know the genus. Figure shows a natural sponge har-vested from the ocean. Sponges are pore-bearers Sponges are classified in the invertebrate phylum Porifera, which means “pore bearer.” More than species of sponges have been described. Most live in marine biomes, but about species can be found in freshwater environments.

temperatures. Gemmules contain sponge cells protected by spicules that will surv ive and grow again when favorable conditions occur. Most sponges reproduce sexually, illustrated in Figure Some sponges have separate sexes, but most sponges are hermaphrodites.

All of the following sponges are found within the coral cap region of the sanctuary ( ft, m deep). Sponge, any of the primitive multicellular aquatic animals that constitute the phylum Porifera. They number approximately 5, described species and inhabit all seas, where they occur attached to surfaces from the intertidal zone to depths of 8, metres (29, feet) or more.

The members of one family, the Spongillidae, are found in fresh water; however, 98 percent of all sponge species are. Sponge Alphabetical list of the genera and species of sponges described by H.J. Carter 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. 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. 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. The phylum Porifera, which means "pore bearing," consists of three classes of sponges, which together contain more than 5, species.

While these sponges share many common characteristics, each class has distinctive traits that set it apart from the others. In a review of sponge taxon names of the World Porifera Database, we detected homonymic cases ( species-group names, 6 genus-group names), involving a total of nominal taxa.

Nummulites lyelli D'Archiac and Haimeis described for the first time from photographs of both generations, using material from the species type locality at El-Mishgigah, in the El-Gharaq. Thenea species 'Hard as rock' sponge cups ~ 1 to 7 cm Ø – m Size: 2 to 40 cm Ø 3– m Size: up to 70 cm high ~ Bubbly cup-shaped sponge with a long, slender, hollow, thin-walled stem, attached to hard substrate by a disc.

The aim and contents of this portal, as well as the lastest updates, are treated in detail under about this site. Some species of sponges reproduce by budding.

This kind of asexual reproduction takes place when the situations are not favorable or when the temperature drops significantly. The gemmules (buds) formed by budding are capable of surviving in unfavorable conditions.

When the conditions become favorable, these gemmules either form a new sponge or. When you look at a sponge, the word "animal" might not be the first that comes to mind, but sea sponges are animals.

There are over 6, species of sponges; most live in the marine environment, although there are also freshwater sponges. Natural sponges have been used by humans to clean and bathe with for at least 3, years. Scyphozoans include all the jellies and are motile and exclusively marine with about described species.

The medusa is the dominant stage in the life cycle, although there is also a polyp stage. Species range from 2 cm in length to the largest scyphozoan species, Cyanea capillata, at 2 m across.

Even the colors vary with different types. The color of sponges ranges from white and beige, to shades of green, brown, yellow, red, purple, lavender, and blue.

Three examples of sponges are the calcareous sponges, glass sponges and demospongiae. These all fall under the main category of porifera, the scientific name for sponges.

Worldwide, there are approximately 5, species of currently living sponges, and there are another 5, or so known from fossil records. All sponges are described in a single phylum Porifera, and they are the only members of this phylum.

Well, the sponge does not have a specific genus. However, any species of a sponge has a genus so find a specific type of sponge, then search the sponge name for example "What is the genus of a.

Pictured is a rather large aggregate vase sponge that I found in the Cape Flattery area. Like the sponges, Cnidarian cells exchange oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogenous wastes by diffusion between cells in the epidermis and gastrodermis with water.

Cnidarian Diversity. The phylum Cnidaria contains ab described species divided into four. -a diagram that shows how species and higher taxa are related to each other -shows how evolutionary lines, or lineages, branched off from common ancestors -a derived character is a trait that arose in the most recent common ancestor of a particular lineage and was passed to all of its descendants.

Sponges Sponges are aquatic invertebrates that make up the phylum Porifera. The word porifera means pore-bearing. The phylum is aptly named. As you can see from Figurea sponge has a porous body. There are at least 5, living species of sponges.

Almost all of them inhabit the ocean, living mainly on coral reefs or the ocean floor. A gathering of different sponge species is known as a ‘sleeze’.

Sponges can filter out as much as 90% of all bacteria that passes through their pores – making them hugely important for disease prevention. Many sponges have anti-cancerous properties and have been used to develop various cancer treatments; Last edited: 21 May Start studying Sponge and Cnidarian.
