 metazoa - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about metazoa
It reflects a former system of classification, in which there were two main divisions within the animal kingdom, the multicellular animals, or metazoa, and the single-celled ‘animals’ or protozoa.
The protozoa are no longer included in the animal kingdom, so only the metazoa remain.

When they were first discovered, the Protozoa were considered as an animal phylum or subkingdom, but as they are generally unrelated and often as similar to plants as animals, a new kingdom, the Protista, was devised to hold them.
Aside from these, all animals belong to a monophyletic group called the Metazoa (called the Eumetazoa when the name Metazoa is used for all animals), characterized by a digestive chamber and separate cell layers that differentiate into various tissues.
The outer layer (ectoderm) corresponds to the surface of the blastula and the inner layer (endoderm) is formed by cells that migrate into the interior.

Metazoa verwijst gewoonlijk naar de dieren met volledig gedifferentieerde weefsels.
In oudere teksten wordt Metazoa vaak als synoniem beschouwd met Animalia (Dieren), slechts exclusief de eencellige Protozoa.
Formeel wordt het als onderrijk genomen, maar deze relatieve rank kan behoorlijk verschillen.

 Palaeos Invertebrates: Metazoa   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Animal Kingdom (Metazoa) is usually considered to include multi-cellular, heterotrophic eukaryotes in which (unlike Plants) the cells are without cell walls.
This includes basically everything from sponges and jellyfish to insects and vertebrates included under the heading of to be "Metazoa", and considered to have evolved from a single unicellular choanoflagellate ancestor, sometime during the Ediacaran period.
It used to be thought that sponges evolved from a different single celled organism to higher animals (in which case the Metazoa are a polyphyletic taxon), but recent molecular phylogenetic evidence indicates this is not the case.

It was found that the presence or absence of the metazoa population did not have any significant effect on the increasing pattern of MLSS.
So, metazoa population especially the attached one in the membrane plays an effective role in fouling control of the membrane.
A steady metazoa population was observed in the system but the accumulation of sludge in the attached media was the same as before.

The rest of the animals -- including fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals -- are all multicellular and are collectively referred to as the Metazoa.
Unlike other Metazoa, sponges do not have muscles or nerves and therefore do not move except at the level of the individual cell.
Metazoa are considered monophyletic, meaning that all organisms developed from a common ancestral form.

 Update of MmtDB: a Metazoa mitochondrial DNA variants database -- Attimonelli et al. 26 (1): 120 -- Nucleic Acids ...
The idea to create a Metazoa mtDNA variants specialised database (MmtDB) originated from the awareness that a large mass of information associated to mtDNA sequences is not stored in the primary databases which instead contain redundant information (e.g., bibliographic and taxonomic).
A variant is therefore, for each species of the class Metazoa, a fragment where nucleotide differences (variations) are detected as compared to a reference sequence.
The Metazoa mitochondrial sequences are retrieved from the EMBL (19) and GenBank (20) primary databases.

Primitive metazoa can be grouped in three basic categories: sponge-like animals, cnidarians, and worms.
Single-celled prokaryotes and eukaryotes in the oceans were eventually joined by metazoa, the first multi-celled animal life.
The first metazoa were entirely soft-bodied (without shells or hard parts of any kind) and they evolved during a time called the Precambrian (older than 545 million years).

They are predominantly bilaterian in body symmetry, a major switch from the dominant radial symmetry of the Vendian metazoa.

 Origin and Early Evolution of Metazoa   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
This period is characterized by the sudden emergence in the fossil record of the first metazoa, and their subsequent disappearance by the beginning of the Cambrian.
The question of their origin is a key one--these first metazoa are fairly complex.
Runnegar used the 'molecular clock' theory of genetic divergence to estimate the time of metazoan origin--his calculations suggested early metazoan radiation beginning ~300-400 million years before the Cambrian (around 800 Ma), indicating a lengthy unknown (that is, unfossilized) metazoan history.

Priority in the data collection has been given to Metazoa for which a large amount of variants is available, e.g., for humans.
Starting from the sequences available in the Nucleotide Sequence Databases, the redundant sequences have been removed and new sequences from other sources have been added.
