The equine ovary has a very unique structure in terms of its extreme large size, the presence of the ovulation fossa and the inverted location of its cortex and medulla. In the previous study, it was recognized that the application of three-dimensional internal structure microscopy (3D-ISM) to observe the mare ovary is very effective. Three-dimensional(More)
The structure of the equine ovary is different from that of other mammals in its extremely large size, the presence of ovarian fossa and the inverted location of its cortex and medulla. A three-dimensional internal structure microscopy (3D-ISM), which consists of a computer-controlled slicer, a CCD camera, a laser disc recorder and a PC, is very useful for(More)
The effect of sugar supplementation with 1 g/kg BW twice a week for eight weeks on rumen protozoa was determined in ten retarded growth calves. Rumen juice was sampled by abdominal paracentesis during the experiment. Papillae development of rumens excised by experimental laparotomy was macro- and micromorphologically determined before and after sugar(More)
Triplumaria selenicaLatteur, Tuffrau and Wespes, 1970 was redescribed from pyridinated silver carbonate-impregnated specimens. Triplumaria selenica has a slit of the vestibular opening extending posteriorly along the left side of the vestibulum. The wide C-shaped adoral polybrachykinety extends along the ventral side of the vestibular opening. The narrow(More)
Intestinal ciliates excreted in the feces of Asian elephants were surveyed. Fourteen species in the order Entodiniomorphida were detected. Nine Triplumaria species in the family Cycloposthiidae were found. Using the silver impregnation, two known species, T. antis and T. dvoinosi, were redescribed and six new species, T. sukuna n. sp., T. zuze n. sp., T.(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of the maximum velocity of the mouth closing phase on the occlusal sound. Six subjects examined were divided into two groups (children and young adults). Occlusal sounds generated by the tooth tapping were obtained with in microelectronic condenser microphone placed on infra-orbital and external(More)
Rumen ciliates of ten Tanzanian short horn zebu cattle were examined. A total of 15 genera and 46 species were identified, including a new Entodinium species. The ciliate density was 22.2 x 10(4)ml(-1). The number of species per host and the diversity index showed high values, 33.8 and 2.80, respectively. Rumen ciliates had a low percentage composition of(More)
