In the comparative body structure of photoreception by means of the Protista and the invertebrates facets are emphasised: (1) the range of visible techniques in those teams and (2) their bearing upon common mechanisms of photoreception. Invertebrates have advanced a much higher number of diversifications than vertebrates­ alterations supporting survival within the remarkably diversified biotopes they occupy. The variety of species in itself indicates this multiformity; each one of them has peculiarities of its personal, in morphology in addition to in body structure and behaviour. yet those certain diversifications are diversifications on a number of nice issues. even supposing of invertebrate species is huge, the literature bearing on them approximately competitors it in extent-even if one considers in simple terms that fraction facing visible body structure. Taxonomy proceeds by means of grouping the species, categorizing them in genera, households, orders, and gradually greater devices. equally, comparative body structure goals at an identical, kind of compre­ hensive, class. This half A of quantity VII/6, like half B that follows it, emphasizes the vast questions that crisis teams greater than the person species; on occasion those questions have basic applicability. the center path among methods which are too really good and people who are too common is frequently elusive, yet the following we try to stick to it. The titanic variety of precise adaptations-probably, as we've stated, as huge because the variety of species-is past the variety even of a handbook.

Example text

The movement of the microscope stage corresponds to the movement of the cell in three dimensions and is either recorded, or directly processed and analyzed by computer. This system was devised for studies of chemosensory behavior of bacteria and has not yet been utilized for photomovement investigations. 3. Mass-Movement Methods In this type of experimental technique, the movement of individual organisms cannot be determined. Instead, the accumulation in or dispersal from an illuminated zone of the cell suspension is recorded.

LA recorder. 7 Balancing potentiometer. 8 Stimulating light simultaneously acting as measuring and reference beam gradients in this arrangement are small at the beginning of an experiment when the cuvette is sufficiently narrow, positively responding cells soon encounter the cuvette wall and thus experience an additional mechanosensory stimulus. With Chlamydomonas, a high percentage of cells reverse their direction upon contact with the cuvette wall, particularly under conditions where their initial phototaxis is positive (RIEDL, 1976).
