  • The renal vascular and glomerular structures of the kidney of neotenous and experimentally metamorphosed axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum: Amphibia, Urodela) are investigated using light, transmission electron, and scanning electron microscopy of critical‐point dried specimens and vascular corrosion casts. The blood vascular system of the kidney in the axolotl is generally similar to that in other urodeles. The glomeruli are comparatively large and distincly ovoid (mean size 267 × 201 μm… CONTINUE READING
