The Lumbricidae are a family of earthworms which includes most of the earthworm species well-known to Europeans. About 33 lumbricid species have become naturalized around the world, but the bulk of the species are in the Holarctic region: from Canada (e.g. Bimastos lawrenceae on Vancouver Island) and the United States (e.g. Eisenoides carolinensis, Eisenoides lonnbergi and most Bimastos spp.

Though we edit our accounts for accuracy, we cannot guarantee all information in those accounts.Earthworms (Lumbricidae, Oligochaeta, Annelida) are mainly free-living terrestrial animals living in soil, leaf litter, under the stones, mainly in wetter, more heavily vegetated regions. As protostomian animals with a true coelom filled with coelomic fluid containing free coelomocytes, they have no lungs and breathe through the skin.

Classification of invertebrates Invertebrates are classified into nine phyla: Phylum: Protoza. Protoza are unicellular organisms, having no physiological division of labour. Amoeba, Paramecium, Euglena, Stentor, stylonchia, etc. are some free living protozoa.Read More
Earthworms also classify with this phylum because it has a true coelom lined with a mesoderm and contain complex organ systems (Miller and Levine 694). Earthworms survive by feeding, circulating, respirating, excreting, reacting, moving, and reproducing. Earthworms survive by feeding and digesting. They use their pharynx to get their food down.Read More

Lumbricidae are restricted mainly to the subtropi-cal latitudes of South America. Only some species extend into tropical latitudes, along the Andean ranges of Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia, and then eastwards, following the mountain ranges of the Guayana shield, along Venezuela and the Guyanas. In Brazil, they are present only in the mountains of the Atlantic forest biome in the southeast and.Read More
Models of Classification. How can we accurately classify people in a manner that corresponds to real biological differences rather than culturally defined stereotypes. The answer to this question is not simple. There are three basic ways in which anthropologists have tried to do it in the past. These are generally referred to as the typological, populational, and clinal models. Typological.Read More

Lumbricus terrestris is a large reddish worm native to Europe, but now also widely distributed elsewhere around the world (along with several other lumbricids), due to human introductions.In some areas where it has been introduced, some people consider it to be a serious pest species, since it is out-competing locally native worms.Read More
