Which phylum contains sea anemones coral and jellyfish?
Coral is a type of usually colonial animal in the phylum Cnidaria and class Anthozoa. They are relatives of the jellyfish and sea anemones. Coral reefs are complex assemblages of corals and other marine animals and plants the form a physical structure that is home to thousands of types of different animals.
When people say "reef", they imply "coral reef." Corals, and other things like coralline algae, are what form reefs. Corals are Cnidarians, the same phylum as anemones and jellyfish. Being a Cnidarian, a coral contains nematocysts to sting and capture prey in their tentacles. Many corals, such as the reef-building ones, have symbiotic algae (zooxanthellae) that provide them with additional food from photosynthesis. However, unlike jellyfish and anemones, "scleractinian" or stony corals form a calcium…
Corals belong to the Phylum Cnidaria. Other animals that belong to the Phylum Cnidaria include jellyfish, hydrae, and sea anemones. Cnidaria are invertebrates (they do not have a backbone) and all have specialized cells called nematocysts that help them capture prey and defend themselves. Cnidaria exhibit radial symmetry.
When a jellyfish is removed from its saltwater environment and put into fresh water it swells and bursts Do you think a jellyfish is a plant or an animal Why?
All jellyfish, as well as all other cnidarians - the phylum they belong to, have special cells known as cnidocytes, which contain nematocysts. Nematocysts are microscopic, barbed, thread-like structures which are coiled up inside of the cnidocyte and are sitting on a pool of toxins. The cnidocyte has a trigger attached to it and when you touch the jellyfish they fire these harpoon-like stinging threads into your skin, which, in turn, inject the toxin into…
The Phylum Cnidaria includes bluebottle jellyfish, anemones, corals and other jellyfish (except comb jellies). There are several Classes: Hydrozoa (Anemones, Corals), Scyphozoa (Jellyfish) and Cubozoa (box jellies). Cnidarians have two distinct body forms: polyps and medusae. Polyps have a tubular body attached to the substrate, or to each other in a colony (e.g. coral). Medusae are free swimming (e.g. adult jellyfish). The most important feature of Cnidarians is their stinging cells (nematocysts). These are in…
Cnidarians are the group of invertebrate animals which possess stinging cells called cnidocytes. The popularly-known cnidarians fall into only a couple of major groups. The Anthozoans or corals, sea pens, and anemones are sessile--that is stationary in lifestyle. The Scyphozoa or jellyfish are motile (mobile in lifestyle). So, the answer to the question is that anemones, coral, and jellyfish are all cnidarians.
It's called coral reef. Coral reefs are made up of secretions of corals called calcium carbonate. The story corals cluster in groups of polyps, which belong to the Cnidaria group, which includes sea anemones and jellyfish. Coral reefs grow in warm and clear shallow active waters in sunny locations. Coral reefs are often called the "rain forests of the sea.
