Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explore the effect temperature may have on development of elements of the Weberian apparatus in relation to the other regions of the vertebral column. The goals of this study were three-fold 1. To test rapid whole-mount staining techniques to quickly determine effect of temperature on somite number. 2. To examine the effect of extreme low and extreme high rearing temperature on somite formation. 3. To examine the effect of extreme low and extreme high rearing temperature on skeletal development in the Weberian apparatus
