Validation of the annual periodicity of the statolith
growth rings has been achieved in several ways.
Morphology and microstructure of the gladius and statolith
from the boreal Pacific giant squid Moroteuthis robusta (Oegopsida; Onychoteuthidae).
When these entered a lobster's ears and found their way into the statolith
, he could control them with a magnet and fool the lobster.
Various procedures were suggested to make the statolith
aging techniques less time and labor consuming (Dawe & Natsukari 1991).
The tips of the bristles may extend above the top of the statolith
, depending on the position of the statolith
with respect to gravity.
In some atypical beak samples, we found "check" rings, which were similar to the rings in the microstructure of the statolith
At 4[degrees]c, starch-containing statoliths
sedimented normally in wildtype but auxin transport was abolished indicating that the mutants are affected in an aspect of signal transduction that occurs after statolith
sedimentation but prior to auxin transport.
Age, growth, and population structure of jumbo flying squid, Dosidicus gigas, based on statolith
microstructure off the exclusive economic zone of Chilean waters.
The use of statolith
growth rings has also been validated for Nassarius reticulatus (Linnaeus, 1758) (Barroso et al.
The four groups of pacemaker balancer cilia are arranged in a rectangle along the tentacular plane, and support a superellipsoidal statolith
elongated in the tentacular plane.
In addition the species funnel organ and statolith
Solid and dashed curves in Figure 6 represent DGR independently determined for both sexes through analysis of statolith
increments (Markaida et al., 2004) for squid of a comparable size range.
