Phylum cnidaria the cnidarians are a diverse group of organisms characterized by the presence of true tissues, radial symmetry, presence of a gastrovascular (digestive) cavity and specialized stinging cells called cnidocytes. Cnidaria a phylum that comprises the sea anemones, jellyfish, and corals, and which is known from the late precambrian cnidarians are basically radially. Phylum cnidaria cnidaria is a large phylum composed of some of the most beautiful of all the salt and freshwater organisms: the true jellyfish, box jellyfish, coral and sea anemones, and hydra.

An introduction to the biology, classification and ecology of anemones, corals and jellyfish the phylum cnidaria.
One example of the phylum cnidaria is coral cnidaria is an extremely diverse group of aquatic creatures, some of which swim freely through the ocean, and some of which, such as coral, appear more like plants than animals like starfish, cnidarians have radial body plans coral are tiny, soft-bodied. The phylum cnidaria includes such diverse forms as jellyfish, hydra, sea anemones, and corals cnidarians are radially or biradially symmetric, a general type of symmetry believed primitive for eumetazoans.
