3 Characteristics of all Vertebrates1. Endoskeleton. Supports larger animal size. Grows with animal (No molting!) Backbone and cephalization. Well-developed brain with sensory organs. Earliest vertebrates were called ostracoderms.3. Closed circulatory system with multi-chambered heart. 3- or 4-chambered heart allows blood to be separated into oxygenated or deoxygenated. More efficient delivery of oxygen to the body.
Endotherms and Ectotherms• Ectotherm: Temperature is regulated by external environment. – Fish, amphibians, reptiles• Endotherm: Body temperature is regulated by internal processes. – Mammals, birds
Temperature Control in ChordatesSection 33-2 Body Temperature (°C) Environmental Temperature (°C)
Characteristics of fish• Live in water.• Overlapping scales that cover skin.• Mucus coat (reduces friction when swimming).• Swim bladder (buoyancy, sharks don’t have one). – Why do many sharks never stop swimming?• Lateral line system (detects vibrations in water).• Gills (blood and water flow in opposite directions; more efficient oxygen absorbtion and CO2 release. OPERCULA: opening and closing flaps; sharks)

Fish: Life Cycle• Varied strategies. – Sharks: internal fertilization. Salmon: external.• Generally, lay many more eggs than they need. – Many are never fertilized. – Many more are fertilized than the environment can support. (Why? Isn’t this wasted effort on the part of the fish?)
Characteristics of Amphibians• Live both in water and on land.• Four strong limbs.• Nictating membrane: see through second eyelid. Why is this helpful on both land and in the water?• Tympanic membrane: hearing. Land? Water?
Amphibians: Energy and Wastes• A frog’s skin “breathes” – it must be kept moist.• 3-Chambered Heart, Double-looped circulatory system. – What is that? Why is that a good thing?• Metamorphisis: teeth/jaws, gills turn into lungs, circulatory system changes• Kidneys regulate the amount of water in the frog. – In water excrete, on land retain.
The Life Cycle of a FrogSection 30-3 Adult Adults are typically ready to Frog breed in about one to two years. Young Frog eggs are laid in water and The eggs Frog undergo external fertilization. hatch into tadpoles a Fertilized Eggs few days to several weeks later. Tadpoles Tadpoles gradually grow limbs, lose their tails and gills, and become meat-eaters as they develop into terrestrial adults.
Characteristics of Reptiles• Dry, scaly skin (prevents evaporation). – Keratin: A hard, water-resistant protein (human hair and fingernails, bird feathers).• Usually carnivores.• Separated 3-chambered heart (crocodiles have 4 chambers).• Ectotherms. – How does a reptile regulate its body temperature?
The Amniotic Egg (Figure 26.4)• Embryo: connected to Yolk by a stalk.• Yolk: food source.• Amnion: fluid that protects the embryo.• Chorion: regulates gas exchange.• Shell: Waterproofs, protects. The shell is porous (gas can exchange through it).• Allantois: stores wastes.

Yolk sac This baglike structure contains a yolk that serves as a nutrient-rich Shell food supply for the embryo.
Characteristics of Birds• Adaptations center around flight… – Light-weight bones: hollow, but have cross braces. – Shape of a bird’s wings gives lift. – Fused bones (ligaments are heavy). – Massive flight muscles (Pectoralis: 25% of weight).• Shape of the wings gives lift.• The one reptilian characteristic of birds is their scale-covered legs.

Characteristics of Mammals• Endotherms – hair.• Mammary glands – produce milk.• Large, well-developed brains.• 4-chambered heart, double-looped circulatory system.
Variety of Mammals• Size – Smallest: shrew (weighs less than a dime) – Largest: whale (100,000 kg; 32 elephants)• Speed – Slowest: Two-toed sloth (1 meter/15 seconds) – Fastest: Cheetah (400 meters/15 seconds) – Humans (150 meters/15 seconds)• Environments
Mammals: Movement and Energy • High-speed running: long bones and flexible hip and shoulder joints. • Eat a variety of foods: different teeth structures. • Diaphram: More gas exchange. • Air sacs: increased surface area for gas exchange.
The Jaws and Teeth of Mammals Section 32-1 CARNIVORE HERBIVORE Canines are pointed teeth. Carnivores use them for piercing, gripping, and tearing. In herbivores, they are reduced or absent. JawJaw joint joint Horse Wolf Chisel-like incisors are used for cutting, gnawing, and grooming. Molars crush and grind food. The ridged shape of the wolf’s molars and premolars allows them to interlock during chewing, like the blades of scissors. The broad, flattened molars and premolars of horses are adapted for grinding tough plants.
Mammals: Types of Life Cycles• Monotremes: Reproduce by laying eggs (duck-billed playtpus).-• Marsupials: Give birth to small, immature young that then further develop inside the mother’s external pouch (kangaroo).• Placental mammals: Babies develop inside the mother’s body (95% of all mammals).
The Success of Mammals• Well-developed cerebrum: The largest part of the brain; makes processing information and learning possible.• Care of the Young: Development inside the mother; care of the young for the first year(s) of their life.
