Almost all of the animals we commonly think of -- mammals, fish, and birds -- belong to a single subgroup within one of the 33 Phyla comprising the Animal Kingdom. On the other hand, over 100,000 species in some 25 animal phyla -- mostly small worms -- are so unfamiliar that they are virtually unknown to non-scientists. All told, around 800,000 species have been identified in the Animal Kingdom -- most of them in the Arthropod phylum. Spinal Cords (Chordata) All animals having a spine, including fish, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, sharks, and eels are grouped into Chordata. Because these animals are so familiar to us, biologists have come up with elaborate classification schemes including subphyla, superclasses, infraorders, and the like. The vast majority (including all the Classes listed above) fit into the subphylum Vertebrata -- those having a backbone. Joint-Legs (Arthropoda) Spiny-skinned (Echinodermata)

CoL DB Using The Catalogue of Life is a joint product of Species 2000 and ITIS. There are currently two editions, the Annual and Dynamic Checklists. The differences between these editions are outlined on the 'About the Catalogue of Life ' page. There are many ways to access the Catalogue of Life depending on your requirements but please note that not all methods can be used to access both the Annual and Dynamic Checklists: Standard users Web interfaces - The primary search interface to the Catalogue of Life is available on the Catalogue of Life website. Advanced users When using the Catalogue of Life in your own system it is important to abide by the terms and conditions of use and notify the Species 2000 Secretariat. Web services - There are two web services available to automatically query the two editions of the Catalogue of Life and then use the data within your own system.

Plant List Taxonomy Phylogeny GBIF Data Portal Try out the new GBIF portal! Why not try out the new GBIF portal at, which has many more features and includes lots of information about the GBIF community, including great examples of data uses in research and interesting applications? The old GBIF data portal which you are viewing now will continue to be supported until we are satisfied it can be taken down without causing major inconvenience. Welcome to the (former) GBIF Data Portal Access 416,242,316 data records (363,215,360 with coordinates) shared via the GBIF network. Explore Species Find data for a species or other group of organisms. Species Information on species and other groups of plants, animals, fungi and micro-organisms, including species occurrence records, as well as classifications and scientific and common names. Example species: Puma concolor (Linnaeus, 1771) Explore Countries Find data on the species recorded in a particular country, territory or island. Countries See data for: France

Compadre-Plant trait database Botanists at Trinity College Dublin have launched a database with information that documents significant ‘life events’ for nearly 600 plant species across the globe. They clubbed together with like-minded individuals working across five different continents to compile the huge database of plant life histories, for which data have been gathered over a near 50-year span. At a time in which climate change and increasing human populations are rapidly re-shaping plant distributions, the researchers hope their COMPADRE Plant Matrix database will foster collaborations between scientists and allow them to better answer questions such as how we can conserve the species that are critical for ecosystem services, and which may provide food for billions. The botanists have just published an article in the prestigious international, peer-reviewed publication Journal of Ecology that describes the database. We rely on plants for some of our most basic needs like food, shelter and clothing. e!

Untitled 1 Useful Reading Campbell, Biology 6th Ed - Chapters 32 & 33, pgs 633-655, 661-662 Campbell, Biology 7th Ed - Chapter 32 & 33, pgs 626-650, 655-626 Vocabulary Symmetry – general, structured body plan. Coelom – fluid-filled body cavity surrounded by mesoderm-derived tissue. Diploblastic – having only two layers of cells during development: the endoderm and ectoderm. Triploblastic – having three layers of cells during development: the endoderm, ectoderm, and mesoderm. Heterotroph – an organism which gets its energy by ingesting food. Hermaphrodite – an individual which can produce both eggs and sperm. Classification In Kingdom Animalia, all taxa are eukaryotic and lack cell walls, multicellular, and generally heterotrophic. The traditional phylogeny is shown below. Presence / absence of true tissues Type of body symmetry Presence / absence of body cavity (coelom) Pattern of coelom development (acoelomate, pseudocoelomate or true coelomate) 1. Porifera (sponges) 2. A. Ctenophora (comb jellies)
