The formation of the embryonic axis is brought about by the continuous recruitment of cells from the primitive streak, and at later stages from the tail bud. Presumptive somitic cells are first incorporated into presomitic mesoderm before they emerge as metamerically arranged somites. When the presomitic mesoderm was examined in stereo with the scanning(More)
The overall pattern of the mesoderm in the embryonic axis of the cranial region of mouse embryos was examined with the scanning electron microscope (SEM). A segmental organization was observed first in the paraxial mesodermal wings and midline axis of embryos at the late primitive streak stage. Each segmental unit consists of a somitomere in the paraxial(More)
Segmentation of the mesoderm in the head of a newt embryo is revealed by scanning electron microscopy. By the end of gastrulation, the newt embryo is already segmented from one end to the other, with additional segments added later by the tail bud. This metameric segmentation appears long before the first "somite" can be seen in the late neurula by light(More)
Recent studies of the heads of vertebrates have shown a primitive pattern of segmentation in the mesoderm and neural plate not previously recognized. The role of this pattern in the subsequent distribution of cranial crest and the development of branchial arches and cranial nerves, may resolve century-old arguments about the evolution of vertebrate(More)
The cranial paraxial mesoblast is patterned into segmental units termed somitomeres. Recently we demonstrated the morphological relationship between the migratory pathways of cranial neural crest cells and the patterned primary mesenchyme of chick embryos (Anderson and Meier, '81). Since extracellular matrix, particularly hyaluronate, is also distributed in(More)
Transport and reaction of carbon dioxide with alkaline species in concrete is modelled by a closed system of ordinary and partial differential equations. Varying porosity and varying external exposure as well as nonlinear reaction rates are taken into account. Proper nondi-mensionalisation is introduced to pay attention to the different characteristic time(More)
Previous studies of the metameric pattern in mesodermal tissues of chick, mouse, turtle, and amphibian embryos have indicated that segmental characteristics exist along the entire length of the embryo. This paper describes this phenomenon in a fish embryo, for some differences in the cranial segmental plan exist between the anamniote and the amniote embryos(More)
Fachbereich 3 – Mathematik und Informatik A note on limitations of the use of accelerated concrete-carbonation tests for service-life predictions Abstract Concrete carbonation is a process that can limit the lifetime of reinforced concrete structures. The resistance of concrete samples to carbonation is usually determined by accelerated tests under(More)

The early development of the mesoblast in the intermediate and lateral regions of the chick embryo was examined with the scanning and transmission electron microscope. It was found that primary mesenchyme here becomes condenses into epithelial structures that emerge in a metameric pattern. Viewed in developmental sequence, the intermediate mesoblast(More)
