Phylum Arthropoda

• Arthropods are segmented animals that have jointed appendages, an exoskeleton, a high degree of cephalization, a ventral nerve cord, and an open circulatory system.

• To grow, an arthropod must shed its exoskeleton periodically in a process called molting.

• The five major subphyla of Arthropoda are Trilobita, Crustacea, Chelicerata, Myriapoda, and Hexapoda.The subphylum Trilobita consists of extinct animals called trilobites.
