Evidence from the Control of the Supply of Biochromes

  • Arthur E. Needham
Part of the Zoophysiology and Ecology book series (ZOOPHYSIOLOGY, volume 3)


’Supply of Biochromes’ covers the uptake and subsequent handling of exogenous chromes and the biosynthesis and further handling of those synthesised endogenously. The mechanisms controlling these processes have been accessible to study longer than the actual chromogenic pathways and so provide much additional avidence, mainly at the systemic level.
