Physical and Chemical Properties of the Protoplasm of Paramecium

  • Ralph Wichterman


In the first edition of this book, the protoplasmic structure, optical properties, surface area and volume, specific gravity, cyclosis and viscosity, and other physical and biochemical properties were described in detail and hence will not be reported here. On the other hand, more recent information stemming from discoveries in electron microscopy (EM) and molecular biology will be presented in this chapter and elsewhere.
