Article title

The development of amphibians


Title variants

Languages of publication



This paper observes amphibian development. Fertilisation is mostly external. Oocytes are mesolecitic. Holoblastic and asynchronous cleavage. It also describes the processes of gastrulation, neurolation, organogenesis and metamorphosis in detail.
