  • The circulating leucocytes of insects, the haemocytes, adhere to and encapsulate foreign material that enters the insect's body cavity. The thickness of the capsule depends not only on the insect species but also on the nature of the object concerned, a fact that is of great importance to invading parasites and pathogens. In this paper, some of the factors that may stimulate haemocyte adhesion and subsequent encapsulation of the object have been investigated using abiotic materials with… CONTINUE READING
