Studies on intercalary regeneration in several organisms have shown that a regenerate is formed when surfaces of different positional value along the proximo-distal axis are opposed. One of the main problems posed by this phenomenon is to know which piece contributes to the building of the regenerate. In the present work we have studied this problem in planarians using chimaeras made between pieces of different body levels, irradiated or not, of the sexual and asexual races ofDugesia(S… CONTINUE READING
