  • 1 June 2002
The reproductive cycle of Bolinus brandaris (Gastropoda: Muricidae) was investigated. Specimens were sampled monthly from a site off Sant Carles de la Ràpita, in the western Mediterranean, betweenExpand
Ultrastructural studies of oogenesis in Bolinus brandaris (Gastropoda: Muricidae)
Ultrastructural studies of oogenesis in Bolinus brandaris are described. Although the initial phase of oogenesis is common to most animal species, vitellogenesis can be considered a species-specificExpand
Increasing imposex in populations of Bolinus brandaris (Gastropoda: Muricidae) in the northwestern Mediterranean.
The muricid gastropod Bolinus brandaris exhibited imposex, a phenomenon linked to the use of organotin biocides. Several stages of imposex development (1-5) could be distinguished and were documentedExpand

  • 1 April 1990
Changes in nuclear structure during eupyrene spermatogenesis of Murex brandaris have been studied using light and electron microscopy. In the first phases, spermatogonia show round nuclei, withExpand
Atypical spermatogenesis in Murex brandaris

  • 1 April 1990
Atypical spermatogenesis in Murex brandaris occurs in specific areas of the testis. In the early stages, a large nucleus is apparent, together with highly electrodense drops of chromatin spreadExpand
Ultrastructural details of spermdegeneration in the ingestive gland of Bolinus brandaris (Gastropoda, Prosobranchia)

Ultrastructural study of the mucosa of the male gonoduct of Murex brandaris (Hexaplex brandaris) (Gastropoda, Prosobranchia)
Summary The male gonoduct of Murex brandaris (Hexaplex brandarte) is covered by a columnar ciliated epithelium in which some goblet cells are located at the first level of the gonoduct. The structureExpand
