Be able to describe: the characteristics of ecdysozoa, the characteristics and biology of the phyla nematoda, arthropoda, and the major subphyla within arthropoda, the characteristics of deuterostomia, the characteristics and biology of echinodermata. Be able to identify: the major orders within hexapoda, the specimens on display and their key anatomical features. Required taxonomy: you will be required to know (and correctly spell) the taxonomy of the following organisms (domain, kingdom, unranked clade, superphylum, phylum, subphylum, order and genus) for lab test 2. In this lab, we will examine the ecdysozoans (nematoda and arthropoda) and the deuterostome phyla echinodermata and hemichordata. We will examine the rest of the deuterostomes, the chordates, in the next lab. Possible phylogeny of kingdom animalia, with taxa covered in this week"s lab highlighted. There are six stations in the lab: nematodes, myriapods, chelicerates, crustaceans, hexapods, and echinoderms. Two stations are located on each lab bench, and one on the side bench.
