Huxley' Contributions to our Knowledge of the Invertebrata



HUXLEY'S original papers on the anatomy of the Invertebrata extend over a period of about thirty years, from 1849 to 1878. They deal with the most varied subjects, as, for example, the organisation of the Hydrozoa in general and of the Siphonophora in particular; the morphology of Heteropoda and Ptero-poda amongst Mollusca; the anatomy and physiology of the rotiferan Lacinularia, the anatomy of the primitive trematode Aspidogaster, the embryology of the crustacean Mysis and of the parthenogenetic eggs of the Aphididse amongst insects, and finally the anatomy of Pyrosoma, Doliolum, and Appendicularia amongst Tunicata.
