dc.description.abstract "One. The gross morphology of digestive tracts of all the suborders of the Plectognathi are described from representatives, with especial reference to the development of the mechanism of inflation. 2. The structure and operation of the inflation mechanism are discussed in detail. 3. The capacity for inflation of Spheroides maculatus is shown to vary directly with the length of the fish and to be proportional to the volume of a sphere, the diameter of which is 61 per cent of the standard length. 4. The comparative ontogeny of the various groups is discussed. 5. The ontogeny of Acanthostracion quadricornis is described and figured and shown to resemble that of the Gymnodontes more closely than that of the Sclerodermi. 6. The phylogeny of the Plectognathi is discussed in its broader aspects"--P. 317. en_US

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
