Abstract

1. Prolonged litoralon treatment of Rana dalmatina beginning with stage 28 of its development accelerated the resorption of the tail fin, further shortened the body-length, and enhanced the appearance of the limb buds. 2. Beside this enhancement of early metamorphosis, litoralon retarded the ossification and reduced the spontaneous mortality during developmental stages 28-30 of the experimental animals.
