A method is described for the in toto embedding and precipitate‐free staining of small invertebrates covered by strong protective outer surfaces. 
Fine structure of the ‘hindgut’ of the two-spotted spider mite,Tetranychus urticae, with special reference to origin and function
The ultrahistology of the ‘hindgut’ of the spider miteTetranychus urticae is described, a new terminology of the histological portions, based on the presence and absence of cuticle, is presented, and
Ultrastructural investigations of Candida albicans after in vitro treatment with the new fungicidal agent rilopirox
TLDR
Candida albicans cells were analysed at the ultrastructural level to investigate morphological aspects of the antifungal mode of action of this new hydroxypyridone compound and the extent of damage was dependent on the specific culture condition, drug concentration and incubation time.
Uptake of tritiated uteroglobin by the endometrium of the rabbit during peri-implantation
TLDR
Uteroglobin, labelled with N-succinimidyl-(2–33H)-propionate, was applied in vivo for 3 h to pregnant rabbit uteri 7 and 9 days after mating showed that the endometrial epithelium is able to take up 3H-uteroglobin, however, with differing intensity.
Ultrastructure, protein synthesis and secretion of day-6 rabbit blastocysts cultured in a chemically defined, protein-free medium
TLDR
Day-6 rabbit blastocysts were cultured in Ham's F10 medium supplemented with polyvinylpyrrolidone as a macromolecular component, for 4 to 12 h, and more than 600 labelled proteins were found.
Enzyme Histochemical Investigations of Candida albicans After Treatment with Rilopirox, a Novel Fungicidal Hydroxy-Pyridone
TLDR
Rilopirox (HOE 351) is a hydroxy-pyridone compound with antimycotic properties that exhibits a significant fungicidal potency even against non-proliferating fungal cells and spores.
Comparative histopathology of the chitin synthesis inhibitors nikkomycin X/Z, nikkomycin Z and polyoxin D. I: Effects on moulting, reproduction and digestion in the spider mite Tetranychus urticae
TLDR
Differences in the mode of action of the three compounds were especially evident in an alteration of the nuclear ultrastructure in the mid-gut cells, which was only caused by polyoxin D.
Ultrastructure and function of the circulatory organs of Leiobunum limbatum and two other species of harvestmen (arachnida: Opiliones)
TLDR
The ultrastructure of the circulatory organs of Leiobunum limbatum, Mitopus morio, and Rilaena triangularis has been investigated and the epicardium is interpreted as the elastic antagonist to the heart muscle.
Morphology of the tibial organs of acrididae: Comparison of subgenual and distal organs in fore‐, mid‐, and hindlegs of Schistocerca gregaria (Acrididae, Catantopinae) and Locusta migratoria (Acrididae, Oedipodinae)
TLDR
The complex tibial organ of Locusta and Schistocerca is very similar in structure and cellular composition with that of Periplaneta (Blattidae).
Environmental actions of agrochemicals 2. Histological effects of the herbicide/insecticide dinoseb-acetate (2-sec-butyl-4,6-dinitrophenyl acetate) on the spider miteTetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae) reared on herbicidetreatedPhaseolus vulgaris
TLDR
Results are discussed with respect to the use of electro microscopy in elucidating herbicide action, to the influence of formulation, and the need for a test system enabling a prediction of ecotoxicological actions of biocides prior to their admission for use in the field.

TLDR
Hematoxyl in-eosin, periodic acid-Schiff and phosphotungstic-hematoxylin staining modifications are suggested which result in differentiation similar to that seen in paraffin sections.
A SIMPLE METHOD FOR REMOVING THE RESIN FROM EPOXY-EMBEDDED TISSUE
TLDR
A suitable solvent for use in tissue-resin systems is developed from the controlled chemical degrada t ion into soluble components of epoxy resins cured with phthal ic anhydride.
Embedding in epoxy resins for ultrathin sectioning in electron microscopy.
TLDR
More rapid than previous techniques, this method gives blocks which do not fracture unduly on trimming and provides sections of soft tissues at 1 μ for phase contrast microscopy, as well as ultrathin sections which cut as easily with glass knives as sections of methacrylate.

TLDR
The capacity to use a single tissue sample in studies designed for light and electron immunocytochemistry, in conjunction with existing autoradiographic and cytochemical techniques, makes this a very desirable method for routine tissue preparation in research and clinical applications.
Buffered potassium permanganate-uranyl acetate-lead citrate staining seguence for ultrathin sections.
TLDR
It is suggested that the increase in electron density produced by the triple stain may result in part from KMnO4 induced alterations of protein that lead to the formation of an increased number of available bonding sites for the uranyl acetate and lead citrate.
Improved ultrastructural detail in tissues fixed with potassium permanganate.
An improved method has been developed for fixation with potassium permanganate. Although this is one of the methods widely used to preserve the dense cores of adrenergic storage vesicles, fixation of

TLDR
Besides preserving fine structure, permanganate fixation enhances tissue density and provides remarkable preservation of many cell components at the electron microscope level, as the following plates illustrate.
THE USE OF LEAD CITRATE AT HIGH pH AS AN ELECTRON-OPAQUE STAIN IN ELECTRON MICROSCOPY
TLDR
The stain reported here differs from previous alkaline lead stains in that the chelating agent, citrate, is in sufficient excess to sequester all lead present, and is less likely to contaminate sections.
