The madreporite is a structure of the echinoderms body which allows water to flow inside their water canals system. It is also know as the Sieve Plate.

The consistency of madreporite is calcerous. Madreporite has openings like a sponge to filter out water from its system.

Water enters the starfish through the madreporite or the tube feet, but mainly the madreporite.

It is located on the Aboral surface of the starfish (upper side), and it is sightly off centered, however not to be confused with the anus, the Madreporite is slightly larger than the anus.

The madreporite is a light-colored opening used to filter water into the water vascular system of echinoderms. It acts like a pressure-equalizing valve. It is visible on the surface of the central disk of a sea star.

Aboral. Had this question for a science work sheet

The madreporite on a sea star acts like a pressure equalizing valve and is used to filter water. It is located on the surface of the central disk. It is a small yellow or red, button-like structure, looking like a small wart.

yes it does but it is located internally instead of externally like most echinoderms

User Avatar

The central region, more commonly known as the Central Disk, is the middle of the starfish where the rays start to grow. The Central Disk also contains the pyloric stomach, the anus, the Madreporite, and the stone canalwhich connects the Madreporite to the inner organs.

aboral!!!!! i hate stupid people who get on here and answer things wrong!!!

The water comes into the system via madreporite.

In seastars, the central part of the body which contains the mouth, anus, madreporite, and gonopores and from which the rays radiate.

On the front of the sea star there is the central disc and madreporite. On the other side of the star are the ambulacral grooves and the feet

It comes and goes through the madreporite - a small valve-like structure on the aboral surface.

The function of the sieve plate on a starfish is to filter the water that is entering into the vascular system. The sieve plate is also called the madreporite.

User Avatar

No, they circulate the water that comes in through the madreporite through their water vascular system, then it exits through their feet providing suction for to latch onto things. (example, rocks)

entrance to the water vascular system that serves as a pressure regulator, floats freely within the coelomic cavity and is not connected to the outer body wall. reza kolor

It is a small spot located just off-center on top of a starfish. That is where the water that is used to operate the tube feet is filtered before entering the animal. It is also called the sieve plate.

User Avatar

the stone canal connects the madreporite to the ring canal and the ring canal allows water to flow into the radial canals, just tubes...

User Avatar

Sea stars move using a water vascular system. Water comes into the system via the madreporite. It is then circulated from the stone canal to the ring canal and into the radial canals.

User Avatar

Think of the water-vascular system. the organs are: stone canal, ring canal, radial canals, ampullae, and the madreporite plate. i had this question on my 7th grade science lab? (:

On the surface of a starfish you will find spines used for protection as armor, dermal gills surrounded the spines, a central disk, madreporite, arms and an anus. Underneath tubed feet used for movement, mouth, ambulacral grooves, and its mouth.

User Avatar

The bright orange dot in the center of the body is called the madreporite. This organ pumps water into the sea star's body. This pumping action creates suction at the end of hundreds of tube feet, located in paired rows on the underside of the arms

User Avatar

It depends what you're comparing them to. Here's a list some of the parts of a starfish: radial canal ring canal stone canal stomach reproductive glands digestive glands water vasculatory system optic cushion tube feet madreporite
