  • SummaryThe cellular organization of the gill, which harbors symbiotic bacteria, is described in juveniles and adults of Codakia orbicularis, a large tropical Lucinidae. The ciliary zone is similar in every species of Lucinidae described and includes the large clear cell which has been previously described as an intermediary cell. The intermediary zone is composed of a few narrow unciliated cells, which bind adjacent filaments together and constitute channels through which sea water circulates… CONTINUE READING
