Question 1.

Distinguish between the following pairs :

(a) Invertebrates and vertebrates

(b) Ectothermal and Homeothermal animals

(c) Monera and Protista

(d) Bryophytes and Pteridophytes

(e) Roundworms and Ringed worms


(a) Difference between Invertebrates and vertebrates:

Invertebrates Vertebrates
No internal skeleton. They have an internal skeleton.
Backbone is not present. Backbone is present.
Tail is absent. Tail is present.
Heart is present on dorsal side. Heart is on ventral side of the body
Nerve cord is ventral and solid. Nerve cord is dorsal and hollow.
Three or more pairs of limbs, if present. Two pairs of limbs.
Haemoglobin, if present, is dissolved. Haemoglobin is present in red blood cells.

(b) Difference between Ectodermal and Homeothermal animals:

Ectothermal animals Homeothermal animals
Internal body temperature relies on external temperature. A constant internal temperature is maintained which is not affected by external temperature.
Example – Amphibians, Reptiles Example – Mammals, Aves

(c) Difference between Monera and Protista:

Monera Protista
They are prokaryotes. They are eukaryotes.
Membrane bound cell organelles are absent. Membrane bound cell organelles are present.
Example – Bacteria Example – Amoeba, Euglena

(d) Difference between Bryophytes and Pteridophytes:

Soft, round, cylindrical body. Soft, cylindrical ring-like segmented body.
False body cavity present. True body cavity present.

Question 2.

Explain the meaning of the terms cold-blooded and warm-blooded (homeothermal).


These animals cannot maintain their body temperature.
Their body temperature is regulated by the external environment.
Animals whose body temperature is kept relatively constant by internal mechanisms.
E.g. Insects, Amphibians E.g. Birds, Mammals
