ON THE MORPHOLOGY OF THE CONNECTIVE TISSUE OF IXODID TICKS
ARMY BIOLOGICAL LABS FREDERICK MD
The loose connective tissue of ixodid ticks is rich in a variety of cellular elements, both migrating and stationary. It contains strands of fat body closely joined to it, representing a variety of connective tissue, and fibers and layers of visceral muscles run through the connective tissue. The hemolymph circulates largely through the communicating large and small lacunae in the loose connective tissue, which, with the hemolymph, fills the ticks mixed body cavity.
