Gill ultrastructure and symbiotic bacteria in Codakia orbicularis (Bivalvia, Lucinidae)
SummaryThe cellular organization of the gill, which harbors symbiotic bacteria, is described in juveniles and adults of Codakia orbicularis, a large tropical Lucinidae. The ciliary zone is similar in… Expand
Gill structure in Lucina pectinata (Bivalvia: Lucinidae) with reference to hemoglobin in bivalves with symbiotic sulphur-oxidizing bacteria
Lucina pectinata is a large tropical Lucinidae which is characterized by abundant tissue hemoglobin in its deep-red gills. In the present paper, hemoglobin is described as being located in… Expand
