Product Details

Lumbricus terrestris, the common earthworm. These are large, extended specimens representative of the phylum Annelida-the segmented worms. Earthworms are placed in the class Oligochaeta-so named due to the presence of relatively few setae (bristles) per segment. Please note, medium earthworms are typically less mature and less likely to show full development of the clitellum.Frustrated by dissection guides your students cannot understand? Enhance your preserved earthworm dissection with Flinn's detailed and easy-to-follow Dissection and Photo Guides. Flinn Dissection Guides were written for maximum comprehension by middle school and high school students. The consistent writing style and format allows students to compare anatomical structures across species. Simple diagrams that correlate with the stepwise instructions will help your concrete thinkers follow the path of each body system. Helpful hints such as approximate location or typical color are specified for hard-to-locate organs. Brightly colored Flinn Dissection Photo Guides were produced with middle school and high school students in mind! Created from photographs taken during actual dissections, these versatile guides will be tremendous tools for all of your students’ study of anatomy and zoology. Prominent anatomical features and organs are labeled to help students locate these features on their own specimens. The guides may also be used as a review tool for lab practicals or other assessments. A package of 10 Lumbricus Earthworm Dissection Guides, FB1916, and a package of 5 Lumbricus Earthworm Dissection Photo Guides, FB1917, are sold separately below.
