This work describes the first ultrastructural results on spermiogenesis and on the mature spermatozoon of Dicrocoelium hospes (Trematoda, Digenea) collected in Bos indicus from Senegal (Africa). Examination of this species was processed by TEM. Spermiogenesis follows the general pattern found in the digenean, but reveals a particularity consisting of the(More)
This paper describes the ultrastructure of spermiogenesis and the mature spermatozoon of two Dipylidiidae cestodes, Joyeuxiella echinorhynchoides and J. pasqualei. In both species, spermiogenesis follows the type III described by Bâ and Marchand for the cyclophyllideans. Nevertheless, it is interesting to note the presence of striated roots associated with(More)
Corsica Island is a sub-basin of the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea, with hydrological features typical of both oligotrophic systems and eutrophic coastal zones. Phytoplankton assemblages in two coastal ecosystems of Corsica (the deep Bay of Calvi and the shallow littoral of Bastia) show contrasting patterns over a one-year cycle. In order to determine what(More)
A study on the interactions between tryptophan (Trp) and dipalmitoylphosphatidyl choline (DPPC) liposomes conducted with the NMR technique and taking turbidity measurements is reported. Trp is shown to be incorporated into the bilayer only when interaction occurs above gel-liquid transition. Disappearance of turbidity changes at the phase transition(More)
