Studies on Tetrameres mohtedai III : Ultrastructure of T . mohtedai
The ultrastructure of female Tetrameres mohtedai, a nematode that dwells in the proventricular wall of local poultry, is described, which had numerous regularly arranged punctations along the transverse striations and irregularly distributed pores on the cuticle.
The fine structure of the cuticle of kamptozoans is similar to that of annelids
The Kamptozoa is a small group of invertebrates whose position on the phylogenetic tree of the Bilateria is still unclear. The relationship between kamptozoans and other bilaterians might be at least…
The ultrastructure of the cuticle of adult female Mermis nigrescens (Nematoda)
The ultrastructure of the cuticle of the adult female nematode Mermis nigrescens has been described and similarities with the cuticles of the Acanthocephala have been noted.
The ultrastructure of the cuticle of Nematoda
The cuticle of Stilbonematinae contains no autapomorphic characters for this taxon, there is a common cuticular pattern within the Desmodorida, and this pattern is an autapomorph character for the order Des modorida.
Corpus gelatum und ciliäre strukturen als lichtmikroskopisch sichtbare bauelemente des seitenorgans freilebender nematoden
- BiologyZeitschrift für Morphologie der Tiere
Aside from chemoreception, mechanoreception is also assumed to be the function of the amphids since analogies exist to the structure of neuromasts in fishes.
Nudora omercooperi sp. nov. (Nematoda: Free-Living) from a unsual locality in South Africa
SummaryNudora omercooperi sp. nov. is described from a fresh-water spring below high tide mark at Claytons Rocks, South Africa. It is characterized by a massive gubernaculum and the form of various…
Unique Locomotory Mechanism of Mermis nigrescens , a Large Nematode That Crawls Over Soil and Climbs Through Vegetation
There is evidence that the motor nervous system of Mermis may not be as simple as in classical nematode examples, which may explain why Mermis is capable of a much more localized control of ~ocomotory motion.
Review of the ultrastructure of the nematode body cuticle and its phylogenetic interpretation
- BiologyBiological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society
The phylogenetic interpretation of the nematode cuticle ultrastructure is reviewed within the framework of recent DNA‐sequence data and the cuticle appears to be unreliable regarding resolution of deep‐level relationships in the Nematoda.
The systematics and ecology of free-living marine nematodes
- Environmental Science
This paper attempts to synthesize research on the systematics and ecology of marine free-living nematodes to give an overview of current research and problems.
Electron microscope observations on Onchocerca ochengi and O. fasciata (Nematoda: Filarioidea)
- BiologyParasitology Research
It was shown that O. ochengi resembles O. volvulus of humans in its degree of development, while being more primitive than O. gibsoni and these could be a model for chemotherapeutic trials.
