Formation of the female pronucleus and reorganization and disassembly of the first interphase cytoskeleton in the egg of the glossiphoniid leech Theromyzon rude
(Academic Press Inc., 1995)
Eggs of the leech Theromyzon rude were studied under dissecting, fluorescence, light, and electron microscopes. The sperm-derived centrosome divides and separates at early first interphase. The female pronucleus forms ...
Cell kinetics, stomatal differentiation, and diurnal rhythm in Allium cepa
Cell kinetics parameters were obtained for the three mitotic divisions leading to formation of stomata in the epidermis of the cotyledon of Allium cepa seedlings. Analysis of mitotic frequencies throughout the course of ...
Epistemic restrictions in population biology
Biologists have believed that the application of statistical or mathematical models to population biology has always been a correct and helpful tool to acquire knowledge. The present article demonstrates that the standard ...
