  2. What do coelomates have that is unique to them?
    They have a coelom, a fluid-filled body cavity that develops within the mesoderm
  3. What is the advantage of the coelomate body plan? Examples.
    It permits specialised regions to develop (stomach and heart)
  4. In pseudocoelomates, what limits the development of specialized tissue?
    The mesoderm and endoderm are sparated by the body cavity
  5. What is the major advancement in coelomates?
    An advanced circulatory system that efficiently circulates nutrients, oxygen and wastes
  6. What is a circulatory system?
    A network of vessels that carries fluids to all parts of the body
  7. What were the first coelomates to evolve?
    Mollusks
  8. What are the only major phylum of coelomates without segmented bodies?
    Mollusks

    20,000
  14. What are the 3 distinct regions of the bodies of al mollusks? Describe.
    • Visceral mass-central section that contains the the body's organs
    • Mantle-wrapped around the visceral
    • Gills- filamentous projections, rich in blood vessels, that capture oxygen from the water and release carbon dioxide

    • Cephalopods
  18. What are the characteristics of Gastropods? Examples.
    • Use thier muscular foot to crawl
    • Mantle often secretes a hard protective shell
    • (snails, slugs and all terrestrial mollusks)
  19. What are the characteristics of Bivalaves? Examples.
    • Secrete a two-part shell (each a valve) witha hinge
    • Filter feeders
    • (clams, oysters and scallops)
  20. What are the characteristics of Cephalopods? Examples.
    • Under mantle have a modified cavity that creates a jet propulsion system to propel them rapidly through water
    • (Octopuses and squids)
  21. What is a radula?
    A rasping tongue-like organ with roves of pointed, backward-curving teeth
  22. What do some snails use radula for?
    To scrape algae off rocks
  23. What do many cephalopods and gastropods use their radula as?
    A weapon to puncture their prey
  24. What mollusks don't have radula and why
    Bivalves because they are filter feeders
  25. How do snails eat oysters?
    Use radula to creat small holes and then extracts the body
