... sister lineages: Zearchaea has ultra-fast cheliceral strikes and Aotearoa , based on external morphology of the clypeus, is hypothesized to have slower strikes. Using high-speed videography, I first gathered kinematic data on each taxon. Then, using histology and data from micro-computed tomography...

Slime glands were electro-stimulated to exhaust their slime stores, left to refill for set periods of time, and harvested for histological and immunohistochemical examination. Whole slime glands, gland thread cell morphometrics and slime cell proportions were examined over...

... the hearing of the toads and used micro-computed tomography and histology to relate the development of ear structures to hearing ability. We found a large (14–27 dB) increase in hearing sensitivity from 900 to 2500 Hz over the course of ear development. Thickening of the tympanic annulus cartilage and...
