Lophophorates have a lophophore, a horseshoe-shaped, suspension-feeding organ with ciliated tentacles

Lophophorates include two phyla: Ectoprocta and Brachiopoda

Ectoprocts (also called bryozoans) are colonial animals that superficially resemble plants

A hard exoskeleton encases the colony, and some species are reef builders

Molluscs

Phylum Mollusca includes snails and slugs, oysters and clams, and octopuses and squids.

Most molluscs are marine, though some inhabit fresh water and some are terrestrial.

Molluscs are soft-bodied animals, but most are protected by a hard shell.

Slide 42

All molluscs have a similar body plan with three main parts:

All molluscs have a similar body plan with three main parts:

Muscular foot

Visceral mass

Mantle

Many molluscs also have a water-filled mantle cavity, and feed using a rasplike radula.

About three-quarters of all living species of molluscs are gastropods

Most gastropods are marine, but many are freshwater and terrestrial species.

Most gastropods are marine, but many are freshwater and terrestrial species.

Most have a single, spiraled shell.

Slugs lack a shell or have a reduced shell.

The most distinctive characteristic of gastropods is torsion, which causes the animalís anus and mantle to end up above its head.
