Book Description:
ILLUSTRATIONS OF COMPARATIVE ANATOMY, VERTEBRATE AND INVERTEBRATE, FOR THE USE OF STUDENTS IN THE hiUSEUJI OF ZOOLOGY AND COIIPBRATIVE ANATOMY. 1875. PREFACE. THE specimens and dissections described in the following pages have been prepared to illustrate the most important forms in Invertebrate and Vertebrate Anatomy. When the first edition of these descriptions, entitled List of Dissections, was published in 1871, Invertebrate Anatomy alone was illustrated. We have now included four representative Vertebrate forms Rat, Pigeon, Frog, and Perch and have increased the series of Invertebrata from 56 to 90 adding to it several specimens, with detailed descriptions, of the Exoskeleton in those forms where such descriptions are not to be inet with in the text books that are commonly used by English students. All the descriptions have been carefully revised. As in the former edition, we have not attempted to give a complete account of each dissection, but merely an indication of its leading features, to enable students more readily to recognise the points dwelt upon in the literature of the subject, or in lectures and to shew them clearly the position and relation of the organs which they will subsequently have to examine when they begin to dissect. For this reason the very language used by Prof. olleston, Prof. Huxley, and others has been reproduced vliere i t has been possible to do so. Our obligations to Prof. Rolleston are however far greater than Inere passages of description, for it is to his work that our own owes its eaist ence. For the sake of brevity we have cited as Eolleston, Forms of Animal Life, by G. ROLLESTON M , . D ., Oxford, 18 70. T. W. BRIDGE, Denzo7zstrator of Comparatiue Anatowr y. IJSEUM OF ZOOLOG A Y N D COXPARATIVE A NATOUT, CAXBR GE M , ay 20, 1875. ILLUSTRATIONS OF COMPARATIVE ANATOMY, VERTEBRATE AND IN VERTEBRATE. SUB KINGDOM PROTOZOA. 1. A piece of the common Freshwater Sponge Spongilln fEuviatilis, exhibiting its siliceous skeleton. Rolleston, p. 163. SUB KINGDOM CCELENTERATA. CLASS HYDROZOA. 2. A Sea Fir Sertularia abietina. It consists of a slender pinnately branched cenosarc invested by a chitinous periderm. Bobh the main stem and the lateral pinnae are beset by numerous sessile or sub sessile more or less flask shaped chitinous hydrothecs, in which the polypites are lodged. In addition to these, larger but similarly shaped vesicles are to be observed studding the pinnae. These are the gonothec and contain the generative zooids. The animal when mature is non locomotive and is attached to its base by a hydrorhiza. 3. A Sea Anemone Tealia crassicornis, from which the base has been removed. The tentacles and the space round the mouth peristomial disc are too much retracted to be well seen. On the other side of the preparation the internal surface of the digestive cavity is exposed, marked with fine radiating lines, which correspond with the attachments to it of the vertical muscular lamellar plates termed mesenteries. These radiate from the outer surface of the stomach to the inner wall of the outer integument, and thus divide the space between the two the body cavity into a number of wedge shaped compartments. Some of these mesenteries fail by greater or less intervals to reach the outer surface of the stomach, and are therefore called secondary or tertiary mesenteries, while those that are attached to that organ and to the outer integument are called primary. Between them are seen some of the generative glands. The cord like craspeda are also to be seen, attached to the inner edges of the mesenteries, Rolleston, p. 158...
