We don’t expect you to know common names (common names are generally not standardized among the animals, and most animals don’t have a common name, anyway.) Many of the concepts that you saw in last week’s lab (Lab 4) will be repeated but specific animal examples will be introduced. This lab is broken into two sections: Phylum Cnidaria and Phylum Platyhelminthes (the flatworms.) We have many examples of cnidarians in the sea water flumes, but because many of the Platyhelminthes are parasitic, we do not have many live examples of these worms to show you. Also, in this lab you can practice your phase contrast skills by making a slide
