  • mexicanum
  • In order to understand how the ischium and the ilium evolved and how the acetabulum was reoriented during this transition, growth series of the Australian lungfish Neoceratodus forsteri and the Mexican axolotl Ambystoma mexicanum were cleared and stained for cartilage and bone and immunostained for skeletal muscles.

  • Development
  • Homologous muscles develop in the same order with the hypaxial musculature developing first, followed by the deep, then the superficial pelvic musculature.Conclusions: Development of the pelvic endoskeleton and musculature is very similar in Neoceratodus and Ambystoma. (edu.au)
  • tigrinum
  • Aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase (AHH) was induced 15-fold in Ambystoma tigrinum by intraperitoneal injection of 3-methylcholanthrene in corn oil, or 10-fold by addition of aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons to the aqueous environment of the neotene animal. (unt.edu)
  • In Mexico, basically all Ambystoma could be considered tigers, since they're all related to A.mavortium , and more distantly to A.californiense and A.tigrinum . (caudata.org)
  • This study evaluates the loads on the limb bones of the tiger salamander ( Ambystoma tigrinum ) and the Argentine black and white tegu ( Tupinambus merianae ) during terrestrial locomotion using three-dimensional measurements of the ground reaction force (GRF) and hindlimb kinematics, anatomical measurements of the femur and hindlimb muscles, and in vivo measurements of bone strain (tegus only).

  • macrodactylum
  • Baily, J (1948) Supplementary observations on the geographic variation of Ambystoma macrodactylum. (springer.com)
  • Ambystoma gracile sites were larger, deeper, lower in elevation, had flocculent sediment higher in organic content, abundant coarse woody debris, and limited emergent/aquatic vegetation relative to A. macrodactylum sites. (usgs.gov)
  • Ambystoma macrodactylum sites were smaller, shallower, higher in elevation, had firm sediments low in organic content, and had a greater occurrence of emergent/aquatic vegetation than did A. gracile sites. (usgs.gov)
  • maximum
  • Ambystoma ordinarium measures between 70 and 75 mm SVL at sexual maturity, reaching a maximum size of 86 mm SVL for terrestrial adults. (amphibiaweb.org)
