Summary1.Protection forProcerodes wheatlandi is afforded against freshwater when they are present in groups.2.A histological examination of the worms exposed to such a medium indicates that mucus may be a source of protection and that leachings of substances from the cells of the organs also may be responsible for the observed protection.3.Isolated worms present the same histological picture as the grouped.4.Worms exposed toParamecium conditioned water present the same histological picture as… Expand

A histochemical study of intracellular digestion in triclad flatworms
TLDR
The course of digestion of an essentially protein food (beef liver) was followed by histological and histochemical methods in Planaria dorotocephala, which exhibits a gradually increasing affinity for stains, an intensified protein reaction, and a gradual diminution in size. Expand
SOME PHYSIOLOGICAL DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN FRESHWATER AND MARINE ORGANISMS
TLDR
The deleterious effect seemed to be a loss of essential body constituents, because the animals were unable to regulate favorably their integumental permeability under the new circumstances. Expand
