Biological Mechanisms of Attachment: The Comparative by Professor Dr. Werner Nachtigall (auth.)

By Professor Dr. Werner Nachtigall (auth.)

Bioengineering is the department of biology which applies the tools of engineering and physics to the learn of organic phenomena, and the vocabulary of know-how to explain them. relatively with admire to the mechanics of flow and different physiological strategies, the benefits of this method are seen. yet different fields of research additionally show new insights whilst biotechnical examine tools are utilized, and this kind of is the comparative morphology of organic constructions. at least, description in technical phrases allows entire, concise association of a box of study, presents a way of describing organic types in phrases in step with their functionality, and aids in figuring out interpretations in line with structural layout and useful anatomy. it really is from this viewpoint that the current booklet describes and discusses, on a comparative foundation, organic mechanisms of at­ tachment. even supposing those are one of the easiest organic mechanisms, they're interesting of their range. This presentation is, in a fashion, an outgrowth of that encyclopedic force that's inside of each scientist. through the years, entire libraries of books were scanned due to this basic interest; the library of the Munich Zoological Institute has proved a very precious resource of data. This little booklet is a miles ab­ breviated distillation of different thousand dossier playing cards which resulted from this urge to collect.

Often the surface of the raphe is indented and twisted as well. The edges may actually touch or may leave open a narrow slit through which plasma may be extruded to effect movement of the animal from place to place. Cross sections at various positions therefore show different kinds of interlocks, ranging from the simple butt joint, through miter and mortise joints, to the reciprocal tongue and groove (114). The raphe is a cleft within an already rigid shell structure, and thus does not join two separate parts.

During cell division the girdles may enclose the space in which the new hypovalves are being formed. A peculiar longitudinal fissure in the valves, the so-called raphe, appears in most pennate diatoms and offers an opportunity for the study of all sorts of interlocking connections (112-114). Often the surface of the raphe is indented and twisted as well. The edges may actually touch or may leave open a narrow slit through which plasma may be extruded to effect movement of the animal from place to place.
