      There are more t species of sponge. Most sponges live in the ocean. A few live in fresh water. All sponges take in water through pores (little holes) in their bodies. The water goes out through a big tube in the center. Most sponges filter (take out) little bits of Kingdom: Animalia.

After spawning at . the water column and converting it to biomass in the benthos (Lesser, ; Pile, ). Sponges in fresh-water systems likely play a similar role, but this has not yet been evaluated. Although the types and sizes of particles that freshwater sponges are capable of ingesting are well-known (Frost, , Reiswig.

      Sponges are primarily marine, but around species live in fresh water. Sponges have cellular-level organization, meaning that that their cells are specialized so that different cells perform different functions, but similar cells are not organized into tissues and bodies are a sort of loose aggregation of different kinds of cells. As the water flows through the pores, the sponges filters out small organic matter, bacteria, phytoplankton and protozoans from the water. Some deep sea sponges have evolved carnivorous feeding strategies and trap small crustaceans using hook shaped structures. Interesting facts: A gathering of different sponge species is known as a ‘sleeze’.

Since there are only a few scattered records from the Gulf States, a distributional study of Louisiana sponges would give a better understanding of the fresh-water sponges of the entire area.

Yet sponges can play a significant role in some flowing water ecosystems. A detailed study of a section of the River Thames in England estimated that sponges accounted for nearly 40 per cent of the total production by benthic animals (Mann et al., ).

Freshwater sponges, of which there are 45 known genera in six families, are members of the. Freshwater sponge, any of about 20 species of the genus Spongilla (class Demospongiae, siliceous sponges), a common, widely occurring group.

Spongilla species are found in clean lake waters and slow streams. Freshwater sponges are delicate in structure, growing as encrusting or branching masses. The objectives of this study were to determine the biogeographical distribution of freshwater sponges and bryozoans in the lakes of Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties, Indiana (excluding Lake Michigan), and to identify the water quality habitats of both bryozoans and freshwater sponges where they are found.

Sponge - Sponge - Classification: The general architecture of the skeleton is used to differentiate families, the particular combinations of spicular types to define genera, and the form and dimensions of single spicule types to differentiate species. Other morphological characters include shape, colour, consistency, surface (smooth, rough, or conulose), and distribution and character of the.

Porifera are a Phylum of Sessile (permanently affixed) and mostly marine Invertebrate rans are commonly known as 'Sponges'.They are one of the most primitive multicellular aquatic Animals.

The Third Edition of Ecology and Classification of North American Freshwater Invertebrates continues the tradition of in-depth coverage of the biology, ecology, phylogeny, and identification of freshwater invertebrates from the USA and Canada. This edition is in color for the first time and includes greatly expanded classification of many phyla.

ADVERTISEMENTS: In this article we will discuss about the General Characters and Classification of Sponges. General Characteristics of Sponges: Some of the general characters of sponges are listed below: 1.

Habitat: ADVERTISEMENTS: All sponges are aquatic, mostly marine, rarely fresh water (e.g., Spongilla), solitary or colonial, sessile (attached to the substratum). Sponges like warmer water.

In the Congo, there is one species of mayfly that excavates tunnels in fresh-water sponges. Some mayfly species require up to four years to complete development. In that time they may molt more than 20 times; Ephemeroptera Stamp: Aquatic insects were the theme for a series of six postage stamps issued by Poland on J.

by Victoria Bertolami BIOL/WATERFall Key taxa: Porifera, Demospongiae, Spongillidae. Freshwater Porifera (sponges) are filter-feeding masses composed of live and dead material.

Sponges benefit their ecosystem in several ways, such as providing habitat for smaller organisms.Sponges, the members of the phylum Porifera (/ p ə ˈ r ɪ f ər ə /; meaning "pore bearer"), are a basal Metazoa (animal) clade as a sister of the Diploblasts. They are multicellular organisms that have bodies full of pores and channels allowing water to circulate through them, consisting of jelly-like mesohyl sandwiched between two thin layers of branch of zoology that studies Kingdom: Animalia.
