  1. What are the three respiratory or gas exchange structures in arthropods? Name which subphylum goes with each.
    • Tracheal system - uniramia (insects, centipedes+milipedes)
    • Book lungs - Spiders (Chelicerata)
    • Gills - Crustacea
  2. What is a tracheal system? What animal has this system?
    • Extensive network of thin-walled tubes that branch into every part of the body.
    • Insects.
  3. All arthropods have ____ circulatory systems. That means they have no ____ or _____ of _____ .
    • open veins
    • separation
    • fluids
  4. What is ecdysis? How does it happen?
    Molting. Enzymes dissolve old cuticle. Animal swallows water-- increased blood value. Cuticle splits and animal pulls itself out of its exoskeleton. Hides until new shell hardens.
  5. Complete metamorphosis? Example?
    • egg -> larva -> pupa -> adult
    • ex: egg -> caterpillar ->chrysalis -> butterfly
  6. Incomplete metamorphosis? Examples?
    • egg -> nymph -> adult
    • ex: mites, grasshoppers, cockroaches
  7. Direct development? examples?
    • egg -> juvenile -> adult
    • ex: crayfish. young look like adult.

    • arachnids, scorpions, horseshoe crabs, mites, ticks
    • trilobites
    • crayfish, lobsters, isopods
    • insects, centipedes, millipedes
  13. How many appendages do chelicerates have?
    Chelicerata have 6 pairs of appendages
  14. What subphylum has pedipalps?
  15. What is the tagmata of spiders and crustaceans?
    cephalothorax and abdomen
  16. What is the tagma of uniramians?

  17. Which subphylum uses antennal or green glands? What are these glands used for?
    • Crustacea
    • excretion
  18. What is the malpighian tubes used for? Which animal uses it?
    Excretion. Spiders
  19. Difference between centipedes and millipedes?

    • Ticks (Chelicerata)
    • Yes (antibiotics)
  23. What is the oldest ancestral and most widely occuring larva in Crustaceans?
    nauplius. (planktonic, move in shore to develop)
  24. Circulatory system of crayfish: Small, angular ____ that lies in the _____ _____, and enclosed in ________. Blood leaves heart in arters but returns by ______. 3 pairs of ______, which are ___________.
