The ultrastructure of the otolithic membrane and otolith in the juvenile mummichog, Fundulus heteroclitus
Evidence is presented which suggests that the fibrous material of the subcupular meshwork is incorporated into the otolith as an organic matrix constituent.
EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE ON GROWTH, CALCIFICATION, AND COCCOLITH FORM IN COCCOLITHUS HUXLEYI (COCCOLITHINEAE)
Studies on fish scale formation and resorption—II. Effect of estradiol on calcium homeostasis and skeletal tissue resorption in the goldfish, Carassius auratus, and the killifish, Fundulus…
Studies on fish scale formation and resorption
SummaryElectron microscopic investigation of scales of the goldfish Carassius auratus revealed that the lamellae of fibrillary plates contain sheet-like structures composed of vertically oriented…
Studies on reef corals. I. Skeleton formation by newly settled planula larva of Pocillopora damicornis
The basal disc with its septal rudiments constitutes a true larval skeleton, differing in morphology, micro-architecture, and crystal type from the fibrous growth characterizing the adult skeleton.

Temporal and metal-specific patterns in the accumulation of heavy metals by the scales of Fundulus heteroclitus
Scanning electron microscope observations of the organic matrix in the otolith of the teleost fish Fundulus heteroclitus (Linnaeus) and Tilapia nilotica (Linnaeus)
Ultrastructural investigation of spicule formation in the gorgonianLeptogorgia virgulata (Lamarck) (Coelenterata: Gorgonacea)
Ultrastructural examination of original and regenerated branch tips of the gorgonianLeptogorgia virgulata reveals that spicule formation begins with the aggregation of scleroblasts in the mesoglea, implying possible relationships among calcification, detoxification, and waste management.
