    Bristlelike structires on outside of an eathworm used to hold onto soil and to move
  2. Molting
    Shedding and replacing the exoskeleton
  3. Value of an Earthworm
    Aerate soil; speed up return of nutruents to the soiul; developing drugs based on chemicals from leech salivia(prevents blood clots)
  4. Method of cephalopod movement
    Jet propulsion; Newton's 3rd law of motion of action and recationb
  5. Describe how Echinderms obtain food and move
    through their tube feet
  6. Examples of Gastropods
    chambered nautilus, garden slugs, snails, and conch( one shell)
  7. Problems caused by Arthropods
    Destroy crops, clothing, food, and property
  8. Water Vascular System
    Network of water-filled canals with thousands of tube feet connected to it
  9. Appendage
    Jointed structures of arthropods, such as legs, wings, or antennae
  10. Charateristics to Classify Mollusks
    Kind of foot; presence of shell or not; if present what kind fof shell
  11. Exoskeleton
    Hard outer covering that protects and supports arthropod bodies
  12. Problems caused by mollusks
    Damage plants; damage boats and docks; can get sick from eating them
  13. Butterfly adapation for obtaining food
    Siphon-enable to drinbk nectar from flowers
  14. Value of Arthropods
    Source of food; agricilture happening
  15. Mosquito adapation for obtaining food
    Able to pierce skin and suck blood
  16. Reasons for insects success
    Tough, flexible, waterproff exoskeleton; ability to fly; rapid reproductive cycle; small sizes; camouflage
  17. Mantle
    Layer of tissuse tht covers a mollusk's organs; secretes the shell or protects the body of mollusks without a shell
  18. Radula
    toungelike organ with rows of teeth used by gastropods to obtain food( scrape and tear)
  19. Value of Mollusks
    food for other marine animals and humans; jewelry; shells provide information about ecosystem

  23. Complete metamorphosis
  24. Body Regions of an insect
  25. Gizzard
    Muscluar structure that grinds the soil
  26. Open Circulatory System
    heart moves blood through vesseks into open spaces around the organs(most mollusks)
  27. Gill
    Organ where carbon dioxide from the mollusk is exchanged with oxygen from the water
  28. Most Specialized and complex mollusk
  29. Three most common grouos of mollosks
    Gastropods, bivalves, cephalopods
