Question

What is the fluid-filled body cavity present between the alimentary canal and the body wall? How presence or absence of this cavity is used in classifying animals. And does a human have this cavity?


Solution

The fluid-filled body cavity present between the alimentary canal and the body wall is called a coelomThe presence of coelom is one of the main
features of metazoans. The true coelom is a body cavity that is formed during
embryonic development into three germinal layers. The presence or absence of coelom is one of the criteria for classifying animals. The three types of body formation related to coelom are - Coelomates (Posses coelom), Pseudocoelomates (false coelom), Acoelomates (do not possess coelom). Humans are Coelomates, they possess a true coelom.
