Naturevolume 140page199 (1937) | Download Citation



To investigate the problem concerning the inductive action of plant tissues in the ectoderm of the gastrula, plant tissues rich in nuclear and plasmatic content were used, such as meristem, cambium, ovaries and anthers. Fragments of these tissue, living or dead, were implanted into the blastocœle of an early gastrula of Triton.
