Pseudomonas As Causative Agents Of Fluorescence In Anguispira Kochi (Pfeiffer) Mucus, John Michael Baum Jan 1971

Pseudomonas As Causative Agents Of Fluorescence In Anguispira Kochi (Pfeiffer) Mucus, John Michael Baum

Masters Theses

The mucus from land snail specimens of Anguispira kochi collected from Coles and Edgar counties, Illinois, emits a blue fluorescence when exposed to ultra-violet light. Pseudomonas, a genus of bacteria which produces fluorescent pigments, has been isolated from the mucus of these snails. The object of the study was to compare the fluorescence of the mucus from individuals of A. kochi with the fluorescence of the pigments produced on a synthetic medium by pseudomonads isolated from the mucus of these snails. An effort was made to establish that Pseudomonas is the causative agent of fluorescence in the mucus of A ...

Reproductive Cycle Of The Male Snapping Turtle, Chelydra Serpentina Serpentina (Linné), Harold Edward Benny Jan 1971

Reproductive Cycle Of The Male Snapping Turtle, Chelydra Serpentina Serpentina (Linné), Harold Edward Benny

Masters Theses

Thirty-seven male Chelydra s. serpentina were collected from Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Wisconsin during months of activity from May, 1969 to June 1971. Carapace length for each specimen was measured, and testes and epididymides were dissected out, weighed, measured, fixed, and preserved in Baker's neutral formalin within seven days of capture. Paraffin sections were stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Frozen sections were stained with Sudan IV.

The spermatogenic cycle was similar to those of other Chelonians and reptiles exhibiting post-nuptial spermatogenesis. In Illinois spermatocytogenesis begins in late March or early April. Meiosis is evident throughout May and early ...
