Ultrastruktur der Säugetierzelle: Ein Atlas zum Studium für Mediziner und Biologen

Seit uns die elektronenmikroskopische Forschung neue Ein­ blicke in die Ultrastruktur der Zelle und der Gewebe schenkt, spielt die examine elektronenmikroskopischer Aufnahmen in der Lehre vom Feinbau des menschlichen und tierischen Organismus eine wichtige Rolle. Dabei werden die Studieren­ den der Medizin und Biologie vor die Aufgabe gestellt, picture­ graphisch erfaßte Profile aufgrund morphologischer Kriterien zu deuten und sich eine räumliche Vorstellung vom Gefüge der Zelle und ihrer Differenzierungen zu erarbeiten.

My European Family: The First 54,000 Years

Karin Bojs grew up in a small, damaged kin. At her mother's funeral she felt this extra keenly than ever.

This is known because their fossils have been found in association with those of sea urchins, squids, and other marine animals. The most serious gap in the fossil record of Mesozoic aquatic reptiles occurs between the Upper Permian and Lower Triassic periods. That is where two major groups – the ichthyosaurs and the sauropterygians – evolved, along with other minor and disparate taxa including the thalattosaurs and askeptosaurs (Carroll 1997). The placodonts (Sect. 1), nothosaurs (Sect. 2), and plesiosaurs were all derived from sauropterygian ancestry.

They propelled themselves by oscillating the tail, while the fin-like limbs were used mainly for steering. The general shape of the body was within the optimal range to minimise drag and for efficient swimming. Probably the fastest marine reptiles capable of sustained swimming, they were predators that hunted fishes and other prey over large areas. Bauplan II contained the mosasaurs, thalattosaurs, marine crocodilians, pachypleurosaurs, and the remaining Triassic ichthyosaurs. These animals had narrow, elongated bodies and long, broad tails.

The first group (Bauplan I) consisted of post-Triassic and some Triassic ichthyosaurs (Chap. 5). n Fig. 17. The four body forms or Baupläne displayed by Mesozoic reptiles.

They propelled themselves by oscillating the tail, while the fin-like limbs were used mainly for steering. The general shape of the body was within the optimal range to minimise drag and for efficient swimming.
