Because tardigrades are so small, they have a high surface-area to volume ratio, making specialized gas exchange structures unnecessary. Diffusion across the body surface is sufficient. The nervous system is similar to that of arthropods, onychophorans, and annelids, with a lobed dorsal brain and ventral nerve cord with fused ganglia. (Nelson, 2002; Ruppert et al., 2004).
