Vertebrates vs invertebrates

  1. 1. Vertebrates vs Invertebrates<br />By Brian Roby<br />
  2. 2. Getting the obvious out there…<br />The major difference between vertebrates and invertebrates is that vertebrates have a backbone and invertebrates do not.<br />
  3. 3. Categories of Animals<br />All vertebrates are under the classification “Chordates” <br />This is the only group that includes vertebrates<br />Humans are classified under this group<br />
  4. 4. Different Types of Vertebrates<br />Vertebrates are broken down into 5 different types<br />
  5. 5. Fish<br />Fish are categorized into 3 different types: Cartilginous(Including sharks and rays), Ray-finned(Salmon all the way to goldfish), and Lobe-finned(Lungfish and coelacanths) <br />
  6. 6. Mammals<br />Mammals are grouped into 3 different categories: Monotremes (Platypuses), Marsupials (Kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, and possums), and Placental Mammals (Primates and Humans!) <br />
  7. 7. Reptiles<br />The reptile group is very diverse and differs greatly from most of vertebrates because it is a ectothermal animal meaning that it must get it’s body heat from the sun and shade <br />The Reptile group includes animals such as snakes, lizards, crocodiles, alligators, and turtles. <br />
  8. 8. Amphibians <br />Amphibians live a very odd life. They actually change they’re form as they develop. They start as eggs and then transform into a fish life creature only to end up as a tetra pod (4 footed animal)<br />Amphibians include animals such as frogs, toads, and salamanders<br />
  9. 9. Birds<br />Birds are covered in feathers which enable them to fly making them one of the few vertebrates to be able to fly<br />Birds have over 9,700 species!!!!<br />
  10. 10. Different Types of Invertebrates<br />Invertebrates are broken down into 8 different categories <br />Again, invertebrates are any animal without a backbone <br />
  11. 11. Sponges<br />Sponges have no tissues or organs in their body<br />They’re filter feeders, meaning that they pump water through their pores to feed <br />There are 5,000 species of sponges! <br />
  12. 12. Cnidarians<br />Cnidarians are a very diverse group, this group includes jellyfish, sea anemones and coral.<br />These animals are incredibly dangerous to humans sometimes. <br />Some cnidarians, such as the Box Jellyfish, can kill a human with one simple sting.<br />
  13. 13. Flatworms<br />Flatworms include parasites which can harm humans and sometimes kill them<br />Flatworms include Tapeworms and Flukes<br />
  14. 14. Roundworms<br />Roundworms are found all over earth, including salt and fresh water! <br />There are over 90,000 species of roundworms, though the number is believed to be much higher<br />The most known species is of course the earthworm, which can be found anywhere dirt is<br />
  15. 15. Molluscs<br />Molluscs have three different types, Gastropods (Snails and slugs), Bivalve molluscus( Clams, scallops, and oysters) and Cephalopods(Octopuses and squids). <br />Most molluscs spend their lives living in a shell<br />There are over 43,700 species of molluscs<br />
  16. 16. Arthropods <br />Arthropods have 4 different groups that include Insects (Bee’s and flies), Arachnids (Spiders), Crustaceans (Crabs and Lobster), and Millipedes and centipedes<br />The lack of a backbone for this animal does not affect it at all because of the tough exoskeleton that is around all Arthropods <br />
  17. 17. Echinoderms<br />This class includes Sea Stars, Sea Urchins, and Sea cucumbers<br />This group is the closest related to Humans because of every member of the Echinoderms has radial symmetry just like humans do!! <br />
