The pattern of primordial imitation where leaf primordia form in alternating patterns of one (distichous), two (decussate), or three (tricussate) leaves per whorl.

A hormone that drives TSH release in tadpoles. The precursor molecule that is converted into a hormone that is essential for larval molts. The process of emergence of the adult insect from the pupa. hemimetabolous holometaolous instars molting neoteny prolactin pupa Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone (TRH) The kind of larval development wherein the larvae look approximately like the adult forms; however, they are much smaller than the adults and are not fully differentiated. The form of larval development wherein the larva is very different from the adult form and the development of the adult involved a complex program of morphogenesis and differentiation. The stages of larval development between molts. The process by which all insect larvae shed their cuticle and replace it with a new elastic cuticle. The phenomenon encountered when a creature becomes sexually mature in what would otherwise be considered a juvenile or larval stage. A peptide hormone that plays a role in regulating some aspects of metamorphosis. The larva enclosed in an elaborate cuticle is constructed after a number of larval molts...
