Welcome to Mr. Dutton’s biology classes at Shaw High School!  This blog will keep you up to date with everything that you need to know in order to be a successful student in my class this year.  I will include posts about your homework, grades and other information, including assignments for honors students and OGT preparation work.  Remember that you can always get back to this page by going to “shawhighstudents.org” and clicking on “Biology”.

Now, for something completely different:

The Crinoids are a relative of starfish, they are scarce in the seas and so far there has been no clear information about these strange Crinoids. They are called by common names “Sea lilies” or “Feather Stars”. The Crinoids have a small mouth part and large feeding arms with a stem that connects to the sea bed. They were also known to move, which they do that to avoid predators such as sea urchins. Only problem they don’t move fast enough, their previous recorded speed was 0.6 meters per hour.
