RE: [Histonet] shark histology

only serious book on either the gross anatomy or the histology of sharks was
THE ELASMOBRANCH FISHES by J. Frank Daniel (University of California Press,
1934).  There have about a dozen papers since then, mostly in obscure

Dear all (especially fishy people)

We are trying to identify some cellular stuctures in sections of newborn
shark head. Is there a good histology atlas (online resource even better)
that anyone can recommend? We are way out of our depth on this one (ha ha).
Unless there is someone out there who wouln't mind helping us if we provide
a micrograph????

best regards & have a great weekend
