    • Digestion and Nutrition Pua Karen Joy D. 1 PSY 4
    • 2 types of species:
      • Autotroph
      • – producers in food chain(i.e. plants).
      • – organisms that only need inorganic compounds from their surroundings to acquire nutrition.
        • Phototrophs – organisms that carry out photosynthesis.
        • Chemotrophs –organisms w/c gain energy from inorganic chemical reactions.
    • 2 types of species:
      • Heterotroph
      • – consumers (i.e. almost all of animals).
      • – takes in autotrophs as food.
    • Animal division according to dietary habits
      • Herbivorous – plant eating animals.
      • Carnivorous – herbivore/carnivore eating animals.
      • Omnivorous – animal and plant eating animals.
      • Saprophagous – animals who eat decaying organic matter.
    • Food processing
      • Ingestion – food taken by mouth or mouth-like structure.
      • Digestion – breaking down of food particles.
      • Absorption – digested food particles are absorbed to the circulatory system & transported to body’s tissues.
      • Excretion – waste products not needed for the body is egested in feces.
    • Feeding Mechanisms
      • Feeding on particulate matter
          • feeding on food particles.
      • Feeding on Food Masses
          • feeding on solid food.
      • Feeding on Fluids
          • Feeding on liquid substance.
    • On particulate matter
      • Suspension feeding
          • Organisms w/c use ciliated surfaces to produce currents that draw food to their mouth.
          • Filter feeding –organisms having filtering structure w/c feeds by straining food particles from water.
      barnacles fan worms Spiral tube worms
    • On particulate feeding
      • Deposit feeding
        • obtaining nutrients from particles suspended in soil.
      earthworm Amphitrite ornata
    • On Food Masses
      • Carnivorous animals use their teeth for seizing and has a retractable stomach for large intake of intact preys.
      • Invertebrates (birds) have teeth-like structures (bills, beaks) for seizing preys.
      Dasypeltis Raven (generalized bill) Cardinal (seed cracker) Parrot (nut cracker)
    • On Food Masses
      • Mammals are the only beings who chew their foods.
        • has 4 different types of teeth:
          • Incisors –biting, cutting, stripping.
          • Canines –seizing, piercing, tearing.
          • Premolars –grinding & crushing.
          • Molars –grinding & crushing.
    • On Fluids
      • Common organisms that feed on fluids are parasites.
      • 2 kinds:
        • Endoparasites (internal parasites) –feeds upon inside the unknowing host.
        • Ectoparasites (external parasites) –feeds outside of the host’s body.
      hookworms leech lamprey Ectoparasites Endoparasites
    • Other ectoparasites have piercing and sucking mouthparts just like mosquitoes and lampreys.
      • Life cycle of lamprey
      • Sucking mouth part of mosquito
    • DIGESTION
      • The process of digestion is mechanically and chemically breaking down of solid foods into small particles for absorption.
      • Solid foods must be broken down first to their simplest molecular form for it to be assimilated.
    • Types of digestion
      • Intracellular digestion
        • Digestion w/in a cell.
        • Food particle is enclosed by food vacuole via phagocytosis.
        • Exclusively used by sponges and protozoa.
    • Types of digestion
      • Extracellular digestion
        • Digestion outside the cell.
        • Digestion of large food masses.
        • Mouth-to-anus alimentary system.
        • Practiced by arthropods and vertebrates.
        • Ingested food is exposed to mechanical, chemical & bacterial treatments, to diff. acidic & alkaline regions, & to digestive juices added throughout passing the alimentary canal.
    • Digestive enzymes
      • Are hydrolytic enzymes or hysrolases.
      • Food molecule is split by process of hydrolysis .
      • Hydrolysis -a chemical reaction in which a compound reacts with water, causing decomposition and the production of two or more other compounds, e.g. in the conversion of starch to glucose.
      • **Enzymes –important biochemical catalyst.
    • Motility in Alimentary Canal
      • Food is moved by cilia or specialized musculature .
      • *cilia – tiny projecting thread that beats rhythmically to aid the movement of a fluid past the cell or movement of the organism through liquid.
      • Characteristic gut movement:
        • Segmentation – alternative constriction of rings of smooth muscle of the intestine that constantly divide & squeeze contents back & forth.
    • Motility in Alimentary Canal
      • Characteristic gut movement:
        • Peristalsis – sweeps food down the gut w/ waves of contraction of circular muscle behind and relaxation in front of the food mass.
      peristalsis segmentation
