Abstract:

The critical phase of the otolith-organ-ripening within the embryo was used in a simulation experiment by setting frog eggs Rana temporaria and toad eggs Bufo bufo near the center of a rotating system with a horizontal axis. The experiment speeds were 100 and 160 r.p.m. the eggs and tadpoles were subjected to maximal centripetal forces with values between 1 and 4 g respectively. Author
