Readers turn into Nature Detectives with actions and tasks that inspire teenagers to make discoveries. kids will build a plankton web to gather pond samples, and they'll develop microorganisms in a Winogradsky Column. They'll notice what secret vegetation sprout from accrued soil samples and construct a rolypoly habitat. while childrens test with phototropism and geotropism, they'll detect the methods crops circulation. In yard Biology, youngsters will scout out assorted habitats to monitor and investigate—and do their half to guard them.

3). While the deposition of the preecdysial procuticle is going on (stage D2-D3) (fig. lA), some microvilli retract from the most distal laminae, leaving short hollow canals facing the epicuticle. In agreement with observations in Orconectes limosus (7) and Uca pugilator (8), these canals enter the innermost region of the epicuticle and extend up to the cuticulin by narrow epicuticular canals. The latter, 25 nm in diameter, are often dichotomized. The disorganization of the microvilli begins just after ecdysis, at the middle part level of the pigmented layer.
2. Different cuticle models. a) Parallel chitin crystallites cemented with proteins; b) parallel chitin crystallites surrounded by helically arranged proteins2l; c) polar and non polar parts of proteins segregate; clear rods are supposed to be formed by polar aminoacids and electron dense alveolar walls are supposed to contain polar aminoacids and separated chitin crystallites; d) model slightly different from that proposed in c. The chitin lattice is connected and more or less regularly ordered.
