    Please don't tell me to ask a teacher or look up the answers myself. Even answering them myself I'd like some assurance that my answers are right.
    If you're not going to answer the questions can you give me a good place to find the answers?

    1. Explain the difference between Eubacteria and Archaebacteria. Note the evolutionary aspect of how each contributed to prokaryotes.

    2. Explain the difference between Coelomates, psuedocoelomates and acoelomates.

    3. How does the Protostome development differ from Deuterstome development?

    4. Explain the difference between radial symmetry and bilateral symmetry.

    5. For each of the above questions, name the organism (phyla) in the animal kingdom that exhibits these characteristsics.

    6. How are diploblastic germ layers differernt from triploblastic germ layers based on the development of an organism in the animal kingdom.

    7. List and describe one distinguishable characteristic for each of the vertebeate classes.

    8. Describe the cleavage as in development that occurs in a protostome and deuterstome.

    9. Define archenteron.

    I got a really fun (note the use of extreme sarcasm) assignment on this kind of stuff over Christmas vacation... still have a bit to finish tonight.

    2. Wikipedia: Body cavity

    3. Wikipedia: Protostome, Deuterostome

    4. Wikipedia: Symmetry (biology)

    6. Wikipedia: Diploblasty, Triploblasty

    9. Wikipedia: Archenteron

    There's some of it for you... Basically, if you need answers, always go to Wikipedia first... it has pretty much everything.

    That's where I've gotten most of the answers. I was hoping for some extra details that wikipedia may have left out and I really need a good grade on this so I wanted to make sure all of my answers were right.

    This plus 4 chapters of self quizzes was my Christmas vacation assignment. I kept putting it off >.<
