  Phylum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Phylum (plural: phyla) is a taxon used in the classification of life, adopted from the Greek phylai the clan-based voting groups in Greek city-states.
Many phyla are exclusively marine, and only one phylum is entirely absent from the world's oceans: the Onychophora or velvet worms.
Subgroup of phylum Chordata; perhaps synonymous with Vertebrata.

 M30.htm
The molluscs rival the arthropods in their diversity of body forms and sizes, as well as their ecological success.
The phylum also provides some of the most familiar animals, such as snails, clams, mussels, squids, and octopus (which, like the arthropods, are well known because they're good to eat).
The phylum Mollusca also includes lesser known forms such as the chitons, tusk shells, solenogasters, among others.

The exclusively aquatic phylum Cnidaria is represented by polyps such as sea anemones and corals, and by medusae such as jellyfish.
The possession of intrinsic nematocysts is the defining characteristic of the phylum (Hessinger and Lenhoff 1988); nematocysts are the most diverse and widespread of three types of cnidae (cnidos = thread) -- hence the preferred name of the phylum.
Hydra, which is used in many textbooks to illustrate the phylum, is utterly atypical: a hydrozoan, it lacks a medusa, it has aggregations of gametogenic tissue that function as gonads, and it is among only a handful of freshwater cnidarian species.

 Phylum Nemata   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
However, when nematodes were placed in the phylum Aschelminthes, they were classified as class Nematoda (along with class Rotifera, class Gastrotricha, class Kinorhyncha, class Priapulida and class Nematomorpha).
When a reference is made to Nemata, there is no doubt that it is the phylum being referred to whereas when an author makes a reference to Nematoda, the author could mean either the phylum or the class.
While nematodes are generally accepted as being a phylum, debate is still ongoing concerning their relationship to other animals grouped together on the basis of the structure of the body cavity.

While this is widely stated by apologists and paleontologists, it is actually an assumption not borne out by the data.
Before we can discuss phylum level evolution, we must know what a phylum is. A phylum is a group of animals sharing a similar body plan.
A phylum is assigned to a given creature based upon its having the shared characteristic body plan.
