Topological organization and functional aspects of the olfactory epithelium of whipfin silver biddy Gerres filamentosus (Cuvier 1829).

The structural organization of different cells lining the olfactory epithelium of Gerres filamentosus (Cuvier 1829) were studied by light and scanning electron microscopy respectively to correlate their role in olfaction. The fan shaped olfactory rosette of G. filamentosus was more or less oval in outline and composed of 13 lamellae of different sizes in… CONTINUE READING
