    • Class Appendicularia-Floats freely  
    • Class Ascidiacea-Attached Ascidiacea
    • Class Thiliacea
  • 3. Parts Of Urochordata
    • pharyngeal slits and arches
    • dorsal hollow nerve cord
    • notochord
    • post-anal muscular (unsegmented) tail.
    • sessile filter feeders with an expanded pharynx
    • larval lampreys
  • 4. Reproduction
    • Most Urochordates are hermaphrodites, meaning the have both sperm and egg.
    • Some can reproduce asexually by budding
  • 5. Feeding and Digestion
    • Suspension feeders
    • They use Mucus nets to trap plankton. The mucus catches food particles and is digested by the Dorsal Lamina and moved to the stomach.
  • 6. Circulatory System
    • Consists of a ventral heart
    • Open circulatory system, so blood flows all around the entire body (no veins)
  • 7. Respiratory System Through respiratory Tube Out Gills Water Flows in Mouth
  • 8. Living environment
    • Lives in an aquatic or marine environment .
  • 9. Interactions with Us
    • Very good in research value
    • Some demand for food items or as pets in aquariums
  • 10. Unique Features
    • Has a “U” Shaped gut
    • Filter Feeders
    • More than two cell layers, tissues, and organs
    • Body covered in secreted protein
  • 11. Other Information
    • Also called Tunicates
    • Commonly known as “Sea Squirts”
    • Referred to evolutionarily important group of animals
    • Nearly 2000 species discovered
