Caudal regeneration in the polychaeteAnaitides mucosa (Polychaeta, Phyllodocidae)

Abstract

Caudal regeneration was investigated in decerebrateAnaitides mucosa and in brain-intact individuals. Both groups show an identical capacity to regenerate lost caudal segments. Furthermore there is no difference in males and females. Low temperature (5 °C) inhibits the regeneration of caudal segments, but it is necessary for normal oogenesis. Under conditions of high temperature (15 °C), caudal regeneration is very extensive. At the same time degeneration of most oocytes occurs.
