We propose a simple mathematical model by applying Michaelis-Menton equations of enzyme kinetics to study the mutualistic interaction between the leaf cutter ant and its fungus garden at the early stage of colony expansion. We derive sufficient conditions on the extinction and coexistence of these two species. In addition, we give a region of initial(More)
The three-dimensional architecture of the vascular network of the rat's lingual papillae has been studied employing the corrosive resin cast technique. The casts of the microvasculature of these types of papillae (the small conical filiform, true filiform, fungiform and vallate papillae) have been observed under scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The(More)
