Dentition (heterodont = different types of teeth)

 Incisors

= For cutting.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• A beaver must constantly wear down incisors or they will grow into it’s brain and kill him.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• Which teeth are the incisors in this human?

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• Answer!

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• How low you can snip from the ground can determine your survival / niche.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• Incisors can used for defense, showing dominance, digging, and many other uses in a variety of animals species.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

 Canines:

For stabbing and killing, tearing and piercing.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• In some cases, canines have evolved so they can be used for many purposes.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

 Carnivores

sometimes have a large sagittal crest for muscle attachment. Creates awesome crushing power.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

 Zygomatic

arch also allows muscles to attach and provides strength to bite.

Nice Premolar s

• Everyone begin fake screaming at the top of their lungs and hold it until the baboons are gone.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

 Premolars:

To crush and grind food.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

 Molars:

food.

Larger, crushing and grinding

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• Herbivore molars are designed to grind and cut difficult plant material.

• Wisdom teeth, Large Molars for crushing. Left over from when our primate ancestors ate a plant diet of tough vegetation.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

 Diastema:

A large gap between adjacent teeth, normally between the incisors and chewing teeth.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• Activity! Please work with your table group to match the colored teeth with their correct name.

• If we were trapped on a fertile grass Island, about the size of a soccer field, should we plant food crops or graze animals.
– Island can produce 10,000 different edible plants. – Island can provide food to graze one small cow, and two goats. They can produce a few glasses of milk daily.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• Answer – We should plant crops. There is more available energy in producing vegetables than animals.
– We may get 10,000 plants. – The field may support one small cow which will just give a small amount of milk, even less energy if we use our one animal for BBQ.

Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

• Vegetarians feed from the trophic level with the most available energy.
– This is less taxing on environment.

– Fill 5 glass test tubes with 10 millilieters water.
• Label -Producers, Consumers, 2nd Order Consumers, 3rd Order Consumers, Decomposers.

– Teacher will place 1 drop of food coloring (All energy) into the producers. (Swirl) – Take 1 drop from producers and place into consumers. (Swirl) – Take 1 drop from consumers and place into 2nd order consumers. (Swirl) – Take 1 drop from 2nd Order Consumers and place into 3rd Order Consumers. (Swirl) – Take 1 drop from each group and add to decomposers.
