Spectral sensitivity in a fresh water gastrotrich lepidodermella squamatum


, : Spectral sensitivity in a fresh water gastrotrich lepidodermella squamatum. Experientia (Basel) 36(7): 830-831

Confronted with a series of alternative choices between environmental lights of different wavelengths, L. squamatum Dujardin (Gastrotricha) shows a selective sensitivity towards colored lights, especially blue, in preference to white light.

The cleavage of all the individual blastomeres could be observed through gastrulation. The later embryology could only be followed s...
