Specialia Physiologica


The author describes a method for transplanting the organ anlagen ofLoligo vulgaris embryos. The anlagen of the eye, the statocyste and the tentacle arm were explanted and transplanted in toto as homo- or heterografts on the vitelline syncytium in different regions of the embryo body. The transplanted anlagen combine perfectly with the host tissue and differentiate according to their original determination.
