CLASSIFICATION OF PHYLUM PORIFERA (SPONGES)
The members of Phylum Porifera are sessile. They are asymmetrical or radially symmetrical. Their body organization is composed of water canal system and chambers. Their cells does not organized into tissues or organs. They have 9.000 species. This phylum has three classes.
1. Class Calcarea (Calcareous sponges): Their spieces are composed of calcium carbonate. These spicules are needle shaped or have three four rays. These sponges have ascon. leucon or SyC011 body forms. All are marine. Example: Grantia (Scypha, Leucosolenia)
2. Class Hexactinellida (Glass sponges): Their spicules composed of silica and are six rayed. These spicules fused to form an intricate lattice. Body is cup or vase shaped. Body tbrm is sycon or leucon types. These sponges are found at 450 to 900 depths in tropical West Indies and eastern Pacific. Examples: Euplectella (Venus flower basket).
3. Class Demospongia (Bath sponges): These are brilliantly coloured sponges. These have needle shaped or four rayed siliceous spicules or spongin or both. These have leucon body form. These are up to 1 m in height and diameter. This class includes one family of fresh water sponges called Spongillidae. Examples: Cliona, Spongilla.
