| Diffusion | Nephridia in each segment; solid waste exits through the anus | Malpighian tubules | Kidneys, intestines, anus | Kidneys, intestines, anus | Growth and Development Does the organism go through metamorphosis, develop in an egg or uterus, or grow from seeds? | Start as small cells; grow bigger until division | Start out as fertilized eggs, hatch into little worms that continue to grow, and then mature sexually into adults | Complete (egg, larvae, pupae, adult) or incomplete (egg, nymph, adult) metamorphosis | Metamorphosis: Egg, tadpole, adult | Develop in egg | RegulationHow does the organism control body processes (hormones, nervous system)? | The nucleus directs protein synthesis. Euglena have eye spots that can detect light | Tiny anterior brain, ganglia, and the nerve cord runs the length of the body | Tiny anterior brain, nerve cord, ganglia, and extremely well-developed sensory organs | Brain, nervous system, good reflexes | Nervous and endocrine systems | Sample organism | Phytoplankton * Chrysophyta | Earthworm * Annelida | Fruit fly * Arthropoda | Frog * Amphibia | Bird * Aves |
