Several techniques for preparing the internal and external surfaces of crustaceans for SEM are described in detailed flow-chart form. Suggestions are given for improving fixation, cleaning, and overall appearance of specimens. The study of gross morphological detail as well as fine structures of crustaceans has been substantially enhanced by the many recent technological advances in scanning electron microscopes (SEM), and, as a result, the use of this instrument in all aspects of crustacean… CONTINUE READING
