The morphological description of morphogenesis accompanying primmorph formation from cell aggregates in the endemic Baikal sponge Lubomirskia baicalensis as well as the description of cell composition of these primmorphs was investigated. Development of small sponges from dissociated cells in L. baicalensis is a stepwise process that can be separated into(More)
