Annedila Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Annedila By: Joey Lee
  • 2. Pictures of Us
  • 3. Introduction
    • The Phylum Annelida is comprised of all kinds of segmented worms.
    • Our parts are in different sections, or segments.
    • We are found nearly everywhere.
    • Even if we lose a few parts, no worries, as we can regrow it easily.
  • 4. Habitat
    • We are found everywhere and are present on land, freshwater, and seawater.
    • Earthworms (Oligochaetes) are found on land, leeches (Hirudinomorphia) are present near freshwater streams, and marine worms (Polychaetes) live in the ocean.
    • All we require is a little moisture.
  • 5. Favorite Activities
    • Earthworms constantly burrow through the ground searching for food, conveniently tilling the soil in the process.
    • The leeches are parasitic and steal from others to survive.
    • Marine worms deposit-feed or filter-feed, depending on where they are.
    • After it rains, I am able to survive above ground, however, I know many of my relatives have died on a strange black surface.
  • 6. Geneology
    • We have visible external segmentation, and our internal organs are repeated, so if we lose a few parts, we can still survive.
    • We have septa in between segments which can help distinguish them. Our epidermis has cuticle which prevents loss of water.
    • Our circulatory system is closed, allowing us to thrive in varying conditions.
  • 7. What’s Special About Us
    • We have many, easily replaceable segments. By keeping them simple and having multiple copies, any damaged section can be replaced rapidly.
    • The cuticle prevent the loss of water from the internal environment.
    • Gas exchange occurs through the epidermis.
    • We move by consistently extending and shrinking muscles, pulling us forward and pulling the back section closer to the front.
  • 8. What I Want in a Mate
    • I want a mate who:
    • Can thrive any where I want to go
    • one that will stay the same gender throughout their lifetime
    • as young as possible to be prepared for fertilization
  • 9. Bibliography
