Abstract

A relationship was studied between fission and restoration of body and its individual parts under different experimental conditions in planarians of the Dugesia tigrina asexual race. The body and its fragments were studied morphomterically. After fission, the growth of planarians demonstrated topographic differences. The separated tail fragments and postpharyngeal area, in which the zone of fission is formed, were growing at the highest rate. More active growth was also noted over the long body axis. Fission and growth were more active in isolated planarians, as compared to those kept in groups.
