The hemorrhage, blister formation, and rumplessness observed in the chick embryo following treatment with trypan blue may be due to (1) increased ventricular blood pressure or (2) to necrosis and edema in the caudal region of the embryo by inhibiting nutrient utilization. To test the role of increased ventricular blood pressure in the induction of caudal(More)
Solanine or a preparation of mixed glycoalkaloids from potatoes naturally infected with the late-blight fungus, Phytophthora infestans, was injected into fertile chicken eggs between 0 and 26 h of incubation, before formation of the neural tube. The embryos were examined after a total of 72 h of incubation. Various abnormalities were found, the most(More)
A discrete-element model is used to investigate the manner in which deformation and fault activity change in space and time during the development of a doubly vergent thrust wedge in the upper crust. Deformation is a result of shortening at a subduction slot in the base of the model, a configuration which produces a dynamic backstop within the cohesionless,(More)
T H E phenomenon of enlargement of the host chick embryo spleen, following grafts of homologous adult chicken tissues to the chorio-allantoic membrane (CAM), affords the investigator an excellent tool for the study of growth. Initial observations of this phenomenon were made by Danchakoff (1916) and Murphy (1916). Grafts of adult chicken spleen on the(More)
