On the renal unit in some common teleosts
- 17 Downloads
The general histology of the renal units of 20 selected species of teleosts has been given. Besides, an analysis of the glomerular size in a total of 43 species of fish shows good agreement with some of the well-known theories of glomerular development in relation to habitat. This preliminary study has helped to bring out some of the essential lines on which reliable data on the renal physiology of some of the euryhaline fishes have to be obtained and these are briefly discussed.
