|Title:||Unusual thickening of collarette in Sagitta bedoti (Chaetognatha) from the polluted environments of Bombay coast|
|Authors:||Nair, Vijayalakshmi R|
|Abstract:||Sagitta bedoti dominated the chaetognath fauna of the nearshore waters of Bombay. S. bedoti from the polluted creek environments developed an unusually bulky collarette which extended from the neck to the seminal vesicles. Such extensive development of epidermal thickening probably serves as a protective sheath to withstand the unfavourable water quality.|
