Bacheor Thesis: Sensory Organ Ultrastructure of Diodora sp.
In my bachelor thesis about the fissurelliid genus Diodora, the focus is on the identification of the structure as well as possible functions of the epipodial sensory organs in the mantle cavity and the tentacles on the mantle fold. To gain new insights into the cellular composition of the organs, alongside light microscopy and the creation of a 3D model, scanning and transmission electron microscopy is applied. The thesis is supervised by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Haszprunar and PD Dr. Martin Heß.
