c Which of the following is NOT a characteristic of all chordates at some point in thier life cycle? A.   A bony or cartilaginous exoskeleton B.A dorsal, tubular nerve cord C. A notochord D.   Pharyngeal gill arches/slits

The five characteristic features of chordates present during some time of their life cycles are a notochord, a dorsal hollow tubular nerve cord, pharyngeal slits, endostyle/thyroid gland, and a post-anal tail.

( A )

Will work on the rest tomorrow!

Guessing it's #4

Some interesting information:

In the developing fetus, the mesoderm-derived urogenital ridges give rise to three sets of kidneys: the pronephros, mesonephros, and metanephros"

1. The pronephros forms and degenerates during the fourth through sixth weeks, but the pronephric duct persists, and connects later-developing kidneys to the cloaca.

2. The mesonephros develops from the pronephric duct, which then is named the mesonephric duct, and persists until development of the metanephros.

3. The metanephros develops at about five weeks, and forms ureteric buds

F  The Gnathostomata... 1  are vertebrates with jaws. 2  are vertebrates without jaws. 3 are completely extinct. 4 includes the protochordates.

Gnathostomes or “jaw-mouths” are vertebrates that possess jaws.
