Dr G. Hotos Lab, Rotifers, Brachionus plicatilis, Defecation compilation



Defecation in Brachionus is bulky creating threads of feces composed of variously ingested content. It accounts for a substantial amount of pollution in its tradition vessel. The defecation course of action is sudden, aided by peristaltic motion of the hint intestine. In this video can be noticed also a unusual rotation of food items stays (green microalgae) just just before their sluggish evacuation, but this is almost certainly not a regular treatment as this rot is almost lifeless.
