The second penguin, also a 1-year-old male, showed dyspnea, weakness, and a firm swelling of the right salt gland
for 3 days.
Within Chloridoideae, salinity tolerance has been associated with excess ion exclusion, accompanied in some cases by ion secretion from leaf salt gland
microhairs (Figs, le-f, 2 and 3c), and with accumulation of compatible solutes such as glycine betaine and proline (Marcum & Murdoch, 1994; Marcum, 1999).
1984--Light microscopical studies on salt gland
development in Tamarix aphylla L.
It has a salt gland
to clean salt from its body in a way that enables it to drink salt water, which is one of the main feature of the animals of desert areas.
Furthermore, the salt gland
secretion on the right eye had a gelatinous consistency and was thicker than on the left eye.
The effect of salt intake on the size and function of the salt gland
Take the sea snake: It has a salt gland
under its tongue.
to the level of researchers who ask, 'What control mechanism turns on a salt gland
or turns down a kidney?
In birds, P aeruginosa has been isolated in cases of conjunctivitis, (14) upper respiratory tract infections in poultry, (6) corneal ulcers in cranes, (15) salt gland
infection in ducks, (16) enteritis, septicemia, (6) and otitis media in African grey parrots (Psittacus erithacus).
exclusion, which in turn was correlated to leaf salt gland
ion secretion rates.
Relative salinity tolerance was positively correlated with salt secretion and salt gland
density and negatively correlated with shoot saline ion levels.
No further cases were observed in penguins in the subsequent year, and the primary cause of the salt gland
adenitis remains uncertain.
