  52. Coelom
    • Main body cavity into which internal organs are suspended.

  63. Limb formation in embryos
    • Structures grow outward
    • Other cell types migrate into limb bud.
    • Take blood supply with them.
    • Blood vessels=most variable system because many paths allow them to reach and drain tissues of the limb.
    • Apical ectodermal ridge interacts with mesoderm to produce limb type mechanical barrier to this interaction can mimmic production of ancestral conditions.
    • Extra toes in horses show that underlying developmental pattern of ancestor is still present.
    • Panda's thumb=derived from a carpal bone that elongated and became larger.
