A new method of three-dimensional (3-D) analysis of sclerotised structures of monogenoids was performed by processing z-series images using 3D-Doctor. Z-series were obtained from Gomori's trichrome-stained specimens of marine and freshwater monogenoids under laser scanning confocal fluorescence microscopy. Measurements obtained from 3-D images were then compared with those from 2-D images taken from both flattened and unflattened specimens. Data comparison demonstrated that 3-D morphometry… CONTINUE READING
