Клеточный состав, морфологическая характеристика иэволюционные изменения фоторецепторного аппаратакамерных глаз наземных брюхоногих моллюсков(Heterobranchia, Stylommatophora)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Cellular composition and morphology of components of photoreceptor apparatus of the retinae of camera eyes of some species of terrestrial gastropod pulmonate molluscs were studied and its evolutionary transformations were traced. It was demonstrated that all examined characteristics of photoreceptor apparatus of the most investigated species were normal for terrestrial pulmonates, while those of one species were special. Evolutionary transformations of photoreceptor apparatus of terrestrial pulmonate molluscs due to habitat shift were quite significant and concerned its cellular composition and morphology of photoreceptor cells.
