The time-course changes in calcium and phosphorus contents, dry weight, and area during scale regeneration in the goldfish, Carassius auratus L. were quantified. Histological observations were then conducted to understand the mutual relationship between the quantitative and morphological processes of scale regeneration. The quantitative study revealed that regenerating scales grow most rapidly in area during the first 5 days of regeneration. The gradual decrease in the area growth rate coupled… CONTINUE READING
