Biol 11 Lesson 1 Mar 2  - Ch. 27 Mollusca Biol 11 Lesson 1 Mar 2 - Ch. 27 Mollusca Presentation Transcript

  • Homework from last class:
    • Read Ch. 27-1 Mollusks
    • Read over class notes and check out the class blog: http://msoonscience.blogspot.com/
  • Phylum Mollusca: Mollusks Chapter 27: Mollusks and Annelids pp. 584-593
  •  
    • Biology fun facts of the day:
    Experts claim that about 1,000 oysters must be opened in order to find one usable pearl!
    • Biology fun facts of the day:
    The common garden snail, Helix aspersa, can travel about 2 feet in 3 minutes. At that rate, it would travel 1 mile in 5.5 days. (Now you know where the term ‘snail mail’ comes from!)
    • Biology fun facts of the day:
    When we hold a large seashell up to our ear, you can hear what sounds like waves because the shell echoes all the sounds around you. If you could listen to a shell in a completely soundproof room, you would hear nothing at all!
    • Biology fun facts of the day:
    Many land snails can lift 10 times their own weight up a vertical surface. (If you were this strong, and you weighed 30 kg (about 70 lb), you could carry 300 kg (almost 700 pounds!!!) straight up a wall!
  • Introduction to Mollusks
    • Phylum Mollusca – Latin molluscus = “soft”
    • Bilateral symmetry
    • 3 cell layers (ectoderm, endoderm, mesoderm)
    • Have a coelom (but often reduced to a cavity that surrounds only the heart)
    • Have trochophore larvae (free-swimming ciliated larva)
      • Similar larvae in annelids 
      • likely share a common ancestor
  • Introduction to Mollusks
    • Mollusks all share similar developmental patterns and a common body plan:
    • Foot (muscle; function varies)
    • Shell (protection; made of CaCO 3 )
    • Mantle (produces the shell)
    • Visceral mass (contains internal organs)
    Diagrams of snail, clam, and squid p. 586
  • Classes of Mollusks
    • 1) Class Bivalvia
      • 2 hinged shells
      • No head or eyes
      • Gills; live in water
      • Example members: clams, oysters, scallops
      • 2) Class Gastropoda
      • One shell
      • Some are terrestrial
      • Example members: snails, slugs, nudibranchs
  • Classes of Mollusks
    • 3) Class Cephalopoda
    • Fast-moving predators
    • Foot is modified into tentacles
    • Well-developed nervous system
    • Some can use camouflage and jet propulsion (e.g. octopus) when they feel threatened
    • Example members: octopus, squid, nautilus, cuttlefish
    Octopus Nautilus Squid
  • Form and Function of Mollusks
        • Mollusks vary a lot  clam = representative mollusk
        • Digestive system:
        • Complete digestive tract (mouth  anus)
          • Mouth, esophagus, stomach, intestine, anus
        • Have a radula (scraping/drilling organ) or a beak (cephalopods)
        • Bivalves trap food in their gills – no radula
    e.g. Gastropod
  • Form and Function of Mollusks
        • Respiratory system:
        • Aquatic mollusks have gills
        • Terrestrial mollusks have a highly folded mantle for O 2 /CO 2 exchange (must stay moist)
        • *A clam has incurrent and excurrent siphons  sea water passes through; location of gas exchange
        • Circulatory system:
        • Open circulatory system – the heart pumps blood through open spaces called sinuses instead of through blood vessels
        • Excretory system:
        • Nephridia (primitive kidneys) remove metabolic waste (nitrogen-containing wastes like NH 3 )
        • Digestive wastes go out anus
        • Nervous system:
        • Bivalves – reduced nervous system; no head
        • Gastropods – fairly basic
        • Cephalopods – very well developed
          • Good vision, small ganglia near mouth, statocysts (balance), simple chemical and touch receptors
          • Good dexterity and memory – they can learn!
        • Musculoskeletal system:
        • Muscular foot for movement
        • Bivalves – “two shell” ; foot pulls animal forward , and can be sucked back in (for protection)
        • Gastropods – “stomach foot” ; they slide forward on broad ventral foot (use muscus)
        • Cephalopods – “head foot” ; foot has been modified into many tentacles with suction cups
    e.g. Gastropod
  •  
  • Ecology of Mollusks
    • Bivalves used to check pollution levels – “environmental monitors”
    • Range of lifestyles: predators, scavengers, filter feeders, etc.
    • Crop damage – slugs, snails on land
    • Ship damage – shipworms in water
    • Food source for humans: clams, oysters, mussels, etc.
      • Humans can get poisoned by eating mollusks contaminated with toxic protists  cause “red tide”
  • Video – “Mollusks”
  • Homework for next class:
    • Complete Ch. 27 Phylum Mollusca worksheet
    • Colour Mollusca (clam) diagram – include a legend
    • e.g. Excretory
    • Circulatory
    • Study for Mollusca quiz!
    • Read over class notes and check out the class blog: http://msoonscience.blogspot.com/
