Transcript of "Segmented Worms"

  1. 1. Segmented Worms Chapter 13 Section 2
  2. 2. <ul><li>Annelids, segmented worms, have setae (bristle like structures) to hold on to the soil and to move; they also have bilateral symmetry, a body cavity holding organs, and two body openings (mouth and anus). </li></ul><ul><li>Earthworms have more than 100 segments and move using their setae and two sets of muscles in the body wall. </li></ul>
  3. 3. 1. Earthworms ingest soil which moves to the crop for storage, then to the gizzard for grinding, then to the intestine; wastes exit the anus and help the soil.
  4. 4. 2. Earthworms have a closed circulatory system and exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide through skin covered with watery mucus.
  5. 5. 3. Earthworms have a small brain and nerves in each segment, joining to a main nerve; they are hermaphrodites that must exchange sperm with another earthworm to reproduce.
  6. 6. <ul><li>Marine worms, or polychaetes, have segments with setae in bundles. </li></ul><ul><li>1. Some polychaetes such as the bristleworm are free-moving. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Some polychaetes are sessile, and some build tubes around their bodies for protection. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Leeches are segmented worms without setae; they feed on blood from other animals. </li></ul><ul><li>1. Leeches are used in medicine to prevent blood from coagulating and to heal surgical sites. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Leeches release chemicals that are being studied as treatments for heart and circulatory diseases, strokes, arthritis, and glaucoma. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Segmented worms are valuable since they aerate the soil, produce medically useful chemicals, and provide food for many fish, invertebrates, and mammals. </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.ciwmb.ca.gov/vermi/game/menu.html </li></ul>
