Morphometry of transport tissues in a freshwater crustacean.

Abstract

Gills and fenestra dorsalis of the syncarid crustacean Allanaspides helonomus were examined with the electron microscope. Their epithelia were characterized using morphometric measurement, with a view to assessing potential for ion transport and respiratory activity. The results obtained show distinctions between the paired gills and allow the possibility… (More)
