Other articles where Cephalaspidomorphi is discussed: fish: Annotated classification: Class Cephalaspidomorphi (Monorhina) Order Petromyzontiformes (lampreys) Without dermal ossification of any sort; pectoral appendages absent; eyes more or less lateral or dorsal; 7 pairs of external gill openings; tail more or less diphycercal. Primarily bottom-dwelling fishes, but suctorial, feeding on blood.
Fish - Fish - Annotated classification: The following classification has been derived primarily from the works of British ichthyologists C. Patterson, R. Miles, P.H. Greenwood, and K.S. Thomson and American ichthyologist D.E. Rosen, with extensive modifications from American ichthyologists G.D. Johnson, W.N. Eschmeyer, M.L.J. Stiassny, L.R.
Lamprey are by far some of the most primitive fish, along with hagfish. They are called cyclostomes, meaning ’round mouths’ which refers to their lack of jaws. Instead of jaws, lamprey have round sucker mouths. Sea lampreys also lack bone. Instead they have a skeleton of cartilage. Anadromous Fishes Just like Salmon and Alewives, the Lamprey are fish that swim into freshwater to breed.The current emerging consensus is that the Cephalaspidomorphi as more recently defined is acttually the parent clade of the jawed vertebrates (gnathostomes) (Janvier2008, Sansom, 2009). At some point these creatures lost their heavy head shield exoskeleton (or not, in the case of the placoderms) and become vaguely ray-like craetures, at first retaining the bottom dwelling habits of their.Classification. In this last section, we're going to take a whirlwind tour through all of the biggest taxa on Earth. We hope you get a sense of just how diverse life on our planet is. Before we get into the details, we'll study a few more terms that will help us describe the various organisms. Prokaryotes v. Eukaryotes. We've tossed these words around already, but now we'll really unpack them.
The group of ray-finned fishes (Class Actinopterygii) encompasses over 20,000 species of fish that have 'rays,' or spines, in their fins.This separates them from the lobe-finned fishes (Class Sarcopterygii, e.g., the lungfish and coelacanth), which have fleshy fins. Ray-finned fishes make up about half of all known vertebrate species.Read More
Ancestor of these fishes evolved in freshwater-- sea water is hyperosmotic (i.e., salt conc. of blood less than that of seawater), so they have a problem of losing water from their tissues-- to prevent water loss they retain nitrogenous wastes in blood; this elevates solute conc. in blood to be slightly higher than sea water and therefore they will not lose water passively.Read More

The organisms found in Class Cephalaspidomorphi live in conditions which are temperate. The species are anadromous, which means they hatch and breed in fresh water, but mature in marine water. The organisms are parasitic as adults- attach to other fishes with their suction-like mouths and rasp holes in the skin of their prey. The buccal glands in the Cephalaspidomorphi secrete an anticoagulant.Read More

Cephalosporins are contraindicated in patients with a history of major hypersensitivity to other cephalosporins. Cross-reactivity with penicillins and other classes of beta-lactams including other cephalosporins is less common than previously thought, especially among patients who have had mild (nonanaphylactic) reactions to penicillins.Read More
Cephalaspidiformes (class Cephalaspidomorphi, superorder Cephalaspidomorpha) An order of fish-like, fossil vertebrates which lived during the late Silurian to Devonian Periods. They had somewhat flattened bodies, with a broad head, 10 pairs of ventral gill openings, a ventral jawless mouth, a heterocercal tail, and a single median nostril communicating with a blind-ending nasohypophysial sac.Read More

Grouping animals. There are many different types of animals. The common animals most people know are only about 3% of the animal kingdom. When biologists look at animals, they find things that certain animals have in common. They use this to group the animals in a biological classification.They think several million species exist but they have only identified about one million.Read More
