Morphology and histology of the digestive tract of Nautilus pompilius and Nautilus macromphalus (Cephalopoda, Tetrabranchiata)

  title={Morphology and histology of the digestive tract of Nautilus pompilius and Nautilus macromphalus (Cephalopoda, Tetrabranchiata)},
  author={Bettina Westermann and Rudolf Schipp},
 This study presents histological and scanning electron microscopical findings on the structural differentiation, and the nervous and vascular supply of the digestive tracts of Nautilus pompilius and N. macromphalus, including the foregut, stomach, vestibulum, caecum, midgut and rectum. The stereoscopic reconstruction of the vestibulocaecal complex gives an idea how the digestive cycle between the stomach, vestibulum, caecum and proximal midgut could possibly proceed. All parts of the digestive… CONTINUE READING
