An anatomical study of the haustoria of Rhinanthus minor attached to roots of different hosts
Roots of a range of potential hosts responded differently when Rhinanthus minor attempted to form haustoria, with Plantago lanceolata exhibits the strongest reactions against the haustorial tissues. Expand
Observations on postembryonic development in Eutrombicula splendens (Acari-Acariformes).
Posternbryonic development in Eutrombicula Splendens includes the following instars: prelarva, larva, protonymph, deutonymph, tritonymph, and adult. Prelarva and larva bear Claparede's organ; theExpand
Observations on the anatomy of hydrated and dehydrated roots of Chamaegigas intrepidus Dinter
During dehydration, the length of roots of the aquatic resurrection plant Chamaegigas intrepidus is reduced by only 15%, whereas the diameter of fully differentiated roots is reduced by 30 to 35%.Expand
Defective autophagy through epg5 mutation results in failure to reduce germ plasm and mitochondria
It is shown that a transgenic line deficient in the Ol‐epg5 gene leads to an impaired autophagic flux, possibly attributed to compromised maturation or processing of the autophagosomes, and an at least partially conserved function of this process during spermatogenesis in vertebrates is suggested.

Susceptibility to the development of pigment cell tumors in a clone of the Amazon molly, Poecilia formosa, introduced through a microchromosome.
Following transplantation to syngeneic hosts, a remarkable clonal variability was observed and a new genetic locus is defined that mediates susceptibility to pigment cell tumor development and leads to transformation of chromatoblasts. Expand
Morphology, testes development and behaviour of unusual triploid males in microchromosome-carrying clones of Poecilia formosa.
A comparison of morphology of the external and internal insemination apparatus and the gonads, sperm ploidy and behaviour, to laboratory-bred F(1) hybrids revealed that the triploid P. formosa males, though producing mostly aneuploid sperm, are partly functional males that differ mainly in sperm maturation and sexual motivation from gonochoristic P.formosa males.
