Abstract The general appearance of crystalline styles is described. Experiments show that styles are renewed every 4th hr in Abra nitida and about every 24th hr in Macoma balthica.

Some physical properties of style solutions are described: the surface tension is decreased, oil is efficiently emulsified, the viscosity is increased and pH buffered. These properties… Expand
