Age of Dinosaurs Lab 2: The Vertebrate Skeleton

  1. 1. Age of Dinos Lab II Lab II <ul><li>The Vertebrate Skeleton </li></ul>
  2. 2. The Functions of the Skeleton <ul><li>A reservoir of chemicals needed in metabolism </li></ul><ul><li>A structural support for soft tissue </li></ul><ul><li>Armor for vulnerable body parts </li></ul><ul><li>A framework upon which muscles may act to facilitate movement </li></ul>
  3. 3. Bone <ul><li>Composed of mineral and protein </li></ul><ul><li>Mineral is hydroxyapatite, a calcium phosphate compound </li></ul><ul><li>Proteins structure is complex and includes several substances </li></ul>
  4. 4. Divisions within the skeleton <ul><li>Axial skeleton </li></ul><ul><ul><li>bones of the skull and vertebral column </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Appendicular skeleton </li></ul><ul><ul><li>bones of the limbs and limb girdles </li></ul></ul>
  5. 6. The Skull <ul><li>Houses brain and sensory organs </li></ul><ul><li>Houses feeding structures </li></ul><ul><li>Houses muscles that operate the jaw </li></ul>
  6. 7. Openings for the Spinal Chord <ul><li>Foramen Magnum </li></ul><ul><ul><li>means ‘big hole’ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>opening at the back of the skull where the spinal chord exits </li></ul></ul>
  7. 9. Openings for Sensory Organs <ul><li>Naris </li></ul><ul><ul><li>bony opening for the nostril </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Choana </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bony opening on the palate that communicates with the Naris </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Orbit </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bony eye socket </li></ul></ul>
  8. 10. Openings for the Jaw Muscles <ul><li>Temporal Region </li></ul><ul><ul><li>part of skull behind the orbit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>houses braincase and muscles of the jaw </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Abductor Chamber </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Part of the temporal region where jaw muscles attached </li></ul></ul>
  9. 11. Fenestrae <ul><li>Openings in the skull that allow muscles to get bigger </li></ul><ul><li>Four major groups of Fenestrae </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Posttemporal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Infratemporal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Supratemporal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mandibular </li></ul></ul>
  10. 12. Openings for Air Sacs <ul><li>These chambers are called pneumatic </li></ul><ul><li>Filled with air </li></ul><ul><li>Function unknown </li></ul><ul><li>Two major groups </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Antorbital fenestra </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Maxillary fenestra </li></ul></ul>
  11. 14. The Vertebral Column <ul><li>Cervical Vertebrae </li></ul><ul><ul><li>vertebrae of the neck </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Dorsal Vertebrae </li></ul><ul><ul><li>vertebrae of the back </li></ul></ul>
  12. 15. Vertebrae (cont.) <ul><li>Sacral Vertebrae </li></ul><ul><ul><li>pelvic bones are solidly attached to these </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Caudal Vertebrae </li></ul><ul><ul><li>vertebrae of the tail </li></ul></ul>
  13. 16. Ribs <ul><li>Ribs are attached to most vertebrae </li></ul><ul><li>Called either cervical, dorsal, sacral, or caudal ribs </li></ul>
  14. 17. Haemal arches <ul><li>Found below caudal vertebrae </li></ul><ul><li>Have a V-shaped profile from the front </li></ul><ul><li>Look like commas from the side </li></ul>
  15. 19. Pectoral Girdle <ul><li>Scapula </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the shoulder game </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Coracoid </li></ul><ul><ul><li>greatly reduced in mammals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>abuts the scapula </li></ul></ul>
  16. 20. Pectoral Girdle (cont.) <ul><li>Glenoid Fossa </li></ul><ul><ul><li>socket in the scapula and the coracoid that abuts the humerus </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Clavicle </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the collar bone </li></ul></ul>
  17. 22. The Forlimb <ul><li>Humerus </li></ul><ul><ul><li>upper arm bone </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Radius </li></ul><ul><ul><li>one of two lower arm bones </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>on the same side as your thumb </li></ul></ul>
