In urodele amphibians, the olfactory input is important in the triggering and controlling of sexual and feeding behaviours. In an aquatic environment, a water sample is drawn through the nostrils to the olfactory organs. This sampling consists of the following acts: the buccal floor is pressed...
Employing transmission electron microscopy, observations were made on epidermis, muscle cells and connective tissue systems, with special emphasis on extracellular matrix components (ECM), in two rather primitive turbellarians: Stenostomum sp. (Catenulida) and Microstomum lineare (Macrostomida)....
Epidermal surface cells were studied ultrastructurally and histochemically at various larval stages in Salamandra salamandra. The most outstanding cellular structures undergoing changes were found to be secretory vesicles, mitochondria and tonofilaments. The highest density of secretory vesicles...
Energy dispersive X‐ray microanalysis was used to localize the two brominated natural products (aerothinonin and homoaerothionin) in the tissues of a marine demosponge, Aplysina fistularis. Virtually all of these compounds were localized within the spherules of the spherulous cells in the...
A parapineal organ was found to be present in 21 teleost fishes belonging to 20 different families, but was absent in poecilids and cyprinodontids. The parapineal organ was situated on the left side of the brain and sent a nerve tract to the left habenular nucleus, except in Gadus, where a...
Two crystal forms of calcium carbonate were observed: calcite (utricle) and aragonite (saccule, lagena, endolymphatic sac). The first step in otolith formation is the appearance of organic structures in the macula. The subsequent step is characterized by fast growing primitive crystals with a...
Spermiogenesis and structure of the mature sperm are described in Achelia echinata Hodge. The sperm differ from previously described types and perhaps represent an unspecialised type.
