About 25 species are colonial e.

Gosse[1]. There are both freshwater and marine species in the Monogonata. The foot projects from the rear of the klasifilasi, and is usually much narrower, giving the appearance of a tail. The female reproductive system consists of one or two ovarieseach with a vitellarium gland that supplies the eggs with yolk. Keratella cochlearis is found worldwide in marine, brackish and freshwater habitats.

The body is often covered in sculptured cuticle into which the corona can be drawn. When swimming the foot is retracted. Guides to the identification of the microinvertebrates of the continental waters of the world Vol. The cilia are arranged in 2 flat discs, and when the cilia beat this makes the corona look like 2 revolving wheels. Keratella cochlearis Gosse[1].

Taxon sorted ascending Filter. Species group name declinable: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Keratella cochlearis – Wikipedia

The coronal cilia pull the animal, when unattached, through the water. They have a single testicle and sperm ductassociated with klaslfikasi pair of glandular structures referred to as prostates unrelated to the vertebrate prostate. Entoprocta or Kamptozoa Ectoprocta moss animals. As these were the fist rotifers to be described, they were given the common name of ” Wheeled animacules “.


Rotifers may be in competition with cladocera and copepods for planktonic food sources. There are three Classes. One treatment rotiferra them in the phylum Rotifera, with three classes: The egg secretes a shell, and is attached either to the substratum, nearby plants, or the female’s own body.

Wikimedia Commons has media related to Rotifera.

They can survive extremes of temperature and desiccation for years. The foot can also be drawn into the cuticular covering. Main Region sorted ascending Filter. The female undergoes meiosis and produces eggs with half the usual number of chromosomes.

Most species hatch as miniature versions of the adult. This species can normally switch between sexual and asexual reproduction cyclical parthenogenesisbut occasionally gives rise to purely asexual lineages obligate parthenogens. Klzsifikasi Read Edit View history. In the winter, most individuals have a long spine at the posterior end.

Keratella cochlearis Kellicottia longispina and Keratella cochlearis Scientific classification Kingdom: About species of rotifers have been described. They are almost transparent see right and belowwith only the digestive tract showing colour. The word “rotifer” is derived from a Latin word meaning ” wheel klasidikasi, [12] due to the corona around the mouth that in concerted sequential motion resembles a wheel though the organ does not actually rotate.

The coronal cilia create a current that sweeps food into the mouth.

John Harris inand other forms were described by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek in Kosmos Verlag, Stuttgart Bdelloid rotifers are assumed to have reproduced without sex for many millions of years. While in other anhydrobionts, such as the brine shrimpthis desiccation tolerance is thought to be linked to the production rotifea trehalosea non-reducing disaccharide sugarbdelloids apparently cannot synthesise trehalose.


Mixis in Brachionus plicatilis has been shown to be induced by a density-dependent chemical klasirikasi. Males are absent within the species, and females reproduce only by parthenogenesis. These do not have a cuticular covering, males have never been observed, and the females appear to be obligatorily parthenogenic. Echinodermata starfish and relatives Hemichordata acorn worms pterobranchs. The Rotifera, strictly speaking, are confined to the Bdelloidea and the Monogononta. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies.

Together, each ovary and vitellarium form a single syncitial structure in the anterior part of the animal, opening through an oviduct into the cloaca. Hydratina sentabelow, has small toes.

For this reason, they are used in fish tanks to help clean the water, to prevent clouds of waste matter. Like many other microscopic animals, adult rotifers frequently exhibit eutely —they have a fixed number of cells within a species, usually on the order of 1, There are two forms of this rotifer; some individuals have a long spine at the posterior end and others do not. Rotifers are dioecious and reproduce sexually or parthenogenetically. The mouth opens into a characteristic chewing pharynx called the mastaxsometimes via a ciliated tube, and sometimes directly.

Modifications to the basic plan of the corona include alteration of the cilia into bristles or large tufts, and either expansion or loss of the ciliated band around the head. By using this site, you agree rotiferaa the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
