Paluma morphophysiology. The experiment was carried out in a completely randomized blocks design, testing 5 electrical conductivity of irrigation water - ECw (0.3, 1.1, 1.9, 2.7 and 3.5 dS [m.sup.-1]) and four nitrogen doses for fertilization (541.1; 773.0; 1004.9 and 1236.8 mg [dm.sup.-3]), in a 5x4 factorial, with four repetitions.

Because the gills are in direct contact with water, toxic substances can easily interfere in the morphophysiology of these organs, as observed in the use of organic pesticides (RAO; RAO, 1981; MALLAT, 1985; LAURENT; PERRY, 1991), of detergents (BOLIS; RANKIN, 1980) acids (McDONALD, 1983), salts (FANTA et al., 1995), industrial rejects (LINDESJOO; THULIN, 1994), ammonia (SODERBERG et al., 1994; MIRON et al., 2008) and heavy metals (OLIVEIRA RIBEIRO et al., 1996).

The castor oil consisted of 88.04% ricinoleic acid; and the effects of the ricinoleic acid on the morphophysiology of the ovaries and the salivary glands of Rhipicephalus sanguineus (Latreille) (Acari: Ixodidae) led to the avoidance of two important processes: reproduction and feeding (Arnosti et al., 2011a, 2011b; Sampieri et al., 2013).
