Part of the Handbuch der Microscopic Human Anatomy book series (MIKROSCOPISCHEN, volume 1/2)


According to Flemmings' suggestion (1892, p. 44), “the form of cell division (or nucleus division in cases where only the nucleus, not the cell is communicated) is called amitotic division, or amitosis for short, in which the well-known thread metamorphosis (Mitosis) does not occur when the nucleus divides ”(Fig. 378). Simple division (Eberth et al.), Fragmentation of the nucleus (van Beneden) and direct division (Flemming) have also been called this type of nucleus and cell proliferation, and it is precisely the last of these terms that is known to have remained in use.

This chapter is part of the Springer Book Archives digitization project with publications that have appeared since the publisher's beginnings in 1842. With this archive, the publisher provides sources for both historical and disciplinary research, which must be viewed in a historical context. This chapter is from a book that was published before 1945 and is therefore not advertised by the publisher in its political-ideological orientation typical of the time.
