Q .(a)     To which type of environments the two types of skeletons “a” Fig.1.25 and “b” Fig.1.25 are suitable?

(b)     What appendages are used in the two?

(c)     Comment on adaptive features.

Ans. ‘a’ shows endoskeleton of a bony fish. The endoskeieton of a fish is suitable for locomotion in aquatic environment. The fish moves with the help of appendages called fins. Since water has a buoyant effect on the fish body, there is little requirement of skeletal support. Muscles used in locomotion are attached to the axial skeleton. ‘b shows dorsal view of skeleton of frog with modifications for support on land. The skeleton is more rigid, bony, and with elongated appendages (limbs) for support on land surface.

Q.(a) To which groups of animals the skins a (1.10a) and b (1.11) represent? b) Comment on specific adaptive features in each.

Ans. Diagram (a) is a vertical section of skin of a bird, while (b) is a vertical section of skin of a mammal.

Skin of bird lack epidermal glands, epidermis is thin, outer keratinized layer is quite soft. Epidermal derivatives, the feathers, are most prominent feature. These help in flying, thermal regulation, in courtship behaviour, and defense.

Skin of mammals has a greater variety of epidermal glands, a highly cornfield epidermis, and thicker dermis. Hair is a protective insulating layer. Adipose tissue in hypodermis stores energy in the form of fat and provides insulation in cola environments. Sudoriferous glands secrete seat which help regulate body temperature.

Q. Figure (A) 1.25— (B) 1.26

(a)           Label the diagrams.

(b)           Comment on the adaptations for locomotion in each case.

Ans. A. Diagram A shows the skeleton of a bony fish. The structures used in locomotion are the muscles, and appendages, which are the dorsal fin, pectoral fin, pelvic fin that are helpful in steering, and the caudal fin helpful in propelling water. The muscles used in locomotion attach to the axial skeleton i.e., the vertebral column.

B. The skeleton of an amphibian (frog) is adapted for locomotion on land (and in water). The intervertebral discs in vertebral column help hold the vertebral column together and also absorb shock and provide joint mobility. Appendages became elongated for support on land surface, and changes in the shoulder enabled the neck to move more freely.

(b)     The amphibian heart has two atria and one ventricle. Oxygenated blood from the lungs (and skin) enters the left atrium, and deoxygenated blood from the body enters the right atrium. The blood from both atria empties into one ventricle, which then pumps it into the respiratory and systemic circulations.

(c)     Most reptiles exhibit a greater degree of anatomical division of the ventricle into two halves, thereby minimizing the chances of mixing of oxygenated and deoxygenated bloods.

(d)     In crocodilians, birds, and mammals, the ventricle is completely divided, forming a four chambered heart, with the blood flow through the lungs completely separated from the flow to other tissues.
