Ultrastructural evidence of the ion-transporting role of the adult and larval neck organ of the marine gymnomeran Cladocera (Crustacea, Branchiopoda)


The neck organ of adult and immature forms of four marine gymnomeran Cladocera species (Podonidae) has been characterized morphologically by light-scanning- and electron microscopy.
