  9. 9. Examples of CrustaceansIsopods
  10. 10. Examples of CrustaceansAmphipods
  11. 11. ANATOMY• Anatomy varies depending on type of crustacean• Body divided into two major parts: Cephalothorax – head and main body cavity Abdomen – muscular, segmented dorsal part of body• Usually 16 – 20 body segments• Carapace – shell covering cephalothorax
  12. 12. cephalo thorax ab do m encarapace
  13. 13. ANATOMY• Many specialized, jointed appendages: – Gills – usually underneath for breathing – Walking legs - pereopods – Swimming legs - pleopods – Feeding appendages • maxillipeds and mandibles - mouthparts • chela - claws – Sensing - antennae – Defense – Tail – telson and uropods
