Chapter 5

By Coach Murray

Sponges filters of the sea 5 30
Sponges – Filters of the Sea (5-30)

  • Phylum Porifera – 10,000 species mistaken for plants, heterotrophs, up to 16 ft wide, filter 20 x volume in 1 min., secrete mucus to avoid clogging

  • Multicelluar: collar cels (move H2O), amoebocyte (absorb/distribute nutrients), osculum (or oscula),

Sponges – Filters of the Sea (5-30)

  • Special Attributes of Sponges

    • Larvae are free swimming and attach themselves to reef/structures and begin growing into adults

    • Defense: needlelike spicules (Fig 5-30 in green) made of glass/calcium or some secrete toxic chemicals
