Chapter 20

subphylum crustacea
Subphylum Crustacea
  • Crustaceans, subphylum Crustacea typically have biramous, branched, appendages that are extensively specialized for feeding and locomotion.
subphylum crustacea3
Subphylum Crustacea
  • Crustacea is divided into 5 classes.
    • Current molecular phylogenies do not support the monophyly of all classes.
subphylum crustacea external features
Subphylum Crustacea - External Features
  • Secreted cuticle is made of chitin, protein, and calcareous material.
  • Heavy plates have more calcareous deposits - joints are soft and thin, allowing flexibility.
  • Dorsal tergum and ventral sternum are plates on each somite lacking a carapace.
  • Anterior end is a nonsegmented rostrum and the posterior end is the unsegmented telson.
subphylum crustacea6
Subphylum Crustacea
  • Crustaceans are the only arthropods that have two pairs of antennae.
  • They also have a pair of mandibles (jaw-like appendages) and two pairs of maxillae on the head.
  • Each body segment usually has one pair of appendages.
    • Ancestrally biramous except for the first antennae.
subphylum crustacea appendages
Subphylum Crustacea - Appendages
  • Members of Malacostraca and Remipedia have appendages on each somite.
    • Other classes may not bear appendages on abdominal somites.
subphylum crustacea appendages8
Subphylum Crustacea - Appendages
  • Appendages have become specialized by evolving into a wide variety of walking legs, mouthparts, swimmerets, etc. from modification of the basic biramous appendage.
subphylum crustacea9
Subphylum Crustacea
  • The ancestral condition in arthropods is to have many body segments.
    • Fewer segments and increased tagmatization is the derived condition.
subphylum crustacea internal features
Subphylum Crustacea - Internal Features
  • Muscular and nervous systems and segmentation exhibit metamerism of annelid-like ancestors.
  • Hemocoel - persistent blastocoel that becomes filled with blood.
    • Coelomic compartments remain as end sacs of excretory organs and gonads.
subphylum crustacea muscular system
Subphylum Crustacea - Muscular System
  • Striated muscles make up a major portion of crustacean body.
  • Most muscles arranged as antagonistic groups.
    • Flexors draw a limb toward the body and extensors straighten a limb out.
subphylum crustacea muscular system12
Subphylum Crustacea - Muscular System
  • Abdominal flexors of a crayfish allow it to swim backward.
  • Strong muscles located on each side of stomach control the mandibles.
subphylum crustacea respiratory system
Subphylum Crustacea - Respiratory System
  • Smaller crustaceans may exchange gases across thinner areas of cuticle.
  • Larger crustaceans use featherlike gills for gas exchange.
  • “Bailer” of 2nd maxilla draws water over gill filaments.
subphylum crustacea circulatory
Subphylum Crustacea - Circulatory
  • Open circulatory system
  • Dorsal heart - single-chambered sac of striated muscle.
  • Valves in the arteries prevent backflow of hemolymph.
  • Hemolymph conducted to gills, if present, for oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange.
  • Hemolymph may be colorless, reddish, or bluish.
    • Hemocyanin (blue) and/or hemoglobin (red) are respiratory pigments.
    • Contains ameboid cells that may help prevent clotting.
subphylum crustacea excretory system
Subphylum Crustacea - Excretory System
  • Antennal or maxillary glands are called green glands in decapods.
  • End sac of antennal gland has a small vesicle and a spongy labyrinth.
  • Labyrinth connects by an excretory tubule to dorsal bladder that opens to exterior pore.
  • Resorption of salts and amino acids occurs as the filtrate passes the excretory tubule and bladder.
    • Mainly regulates the ionic and osmotic composition of body fluids.
subphylum crustacea excretory system16
Subphylum Crustacea - Excretory System
  • Nitrogenous wastes are excreted across thin areas of cuticle in the gills.
  • Freshwater crustaceans constantly threatened by over-dilution with water.
    • Gills must actively absorb Na+ and Cl-.
  • Marine crustaceans have urine that is isosmotic with blood.
subphylum crustacea nervous system
Subphylum Crustacea - Nervous System
  • Pair of supra-esophageal ganglia connects to eyes and two pairs of antennae.
  • Neuron connectives join this brain to the subesophageal ganglion.
    • Supplies nerves to mouth, appendages, esophagus, and antennal glands.
  • Double ventral nerve cord has a pair of ganglia for each somite to control appendages
subphylum crustacea sensory system
Subphylum Crustacea - Sensory System
  • Eyes and statocysts are the largest sensory organs.
  • Tactile hairs occur on the body, especially on chelae, mouthparts and telson.
  • Chemical sensing of taste and smell occurs in hairs on antennae and mouth.
  • Statocyst opens at base of first antenna in crayfish.
    • Statocyst lined with sensory hairs that detect position of grains of sand.
subphylum crustacea sensory system19
Subphylum Crustacea - Sensory System
  • Compound eyes are made of many units called ommatidia.
  • Cornea focuses light down the columnar ommatidium.
  • Distal retinal, proximal retinal, and reflecting pigment cells form a sleeve around each ommatidium.
  • Each ommatidium detects a restricted area of objects, a mosaic, in bright light.
  • In dim light, the distal and proximal pigments separate and produce a continuous image.
subphylum crustacea diversity of reproduction
Subphylum Crustacea - Diversity of Reproduction
  • Barnacles are monoecious but generally cross-fertilize.
  • In some ostracods, males are scarce and reproduction is by parthenogenesis.
subphylum crustacea diversity of reproduction21
Subphylum Crustacea - Diversity of Reproduction
  • Most crustaceans brood eggs in brood chambers, in brood sacs attached to the abdomen, or attached to abdominal appendages.
  • Crayfishes develop directly without a larval form.
subphylum crustacea diversity of reproduction22
Subphylum Crustacea - Diversity of Reproduction
  • Most crustaceans have a larva unlike the adult in form, and undergo metamorphosis.
    • Gulf shrimp
subphylum crustacea diversity of reproduction23
Subphylum Crustacea - Diversity of Reproduction
  • The nauplius is a common larval form with uniramous first antennae, and biramous second antennae and mandibles that all aid in swimming.
    • Appendages and somites are added in a series of molts.
  • Metamorphosis of a barnacle proceeds from a free-swimming nauplius to a cypris larva with a bivalve carapace and finally to a sessile adult with plates.
subphylum crustacea ecdysis
Subphylum Crustacea - Ecdysis
  • Ecdysis is necessary for a crustacean to increase in size – the exoskeleton does not grow.
  • Physiology of molting affects reproduction, behavior, and many metabolic processes.
  • Underlying epidermis secretes cuticle.
subphylum crustacea ecdysis25
Subphylum Crustacea - Ecdysis
  • Molting animals grow in the intermolt phases, or instars.
  • Soft tissue increases in size until there is no space within the cuticle.
  • When body fills the cuticle, animal is in the premolt phase.
  • Molting occurs often in young animals and may cease in adults.
subphylum crustacea ecdysis26
Subphylum Crustacea - Ecdysis
  • Hormonal Control of Ecdysis:
    • Temperature, day length, or other stimuli trigger central nervous system to begin ecdysis.
    • Central nervous system decreases production of molt-inhibiting hormone by the X-organ.
    • Promotes release of molting hormone from the Y-organs which promotes ecdysis.
subphylum crustacea endocrine functions
Subphylum Crustacea - Endocrine Functions
  • Removing eyestalks accelerates molting and prevents color changes to match background.
    • Hormones from neurosecretory cells in eyestalk control dispersal of cell pigment.
subphylum crustacea feeding habits
Subphylum Crustacea - Feeding Habits
  • Same fundamental mouthparts in various crustaceans are adapted to a wide array of feeding habits.
    • Suspension feeders generate water currents in order to feed on plankton, detritus ,and bacteria.
    • Predators consume larvae, worms, crustaceans, snails, and fishes.
    • Scavengers eat dead animal and plant matter.
