Abstract

The thesis is divided into two parts; one on the systematic and adaptive significance of the vibrissae in the marsupials and the other on the development and replacement of pelage hairs in the bandicoot, Perameles nasuta.
The supporting papers are on:
(a) the external characters of five species of bandicoot, Iscodon obesulus, Perameles gunnii, Perameles eremiana, Macrotis lagotis and Chaeropus ecaudatus,
(b) syndactyly in the manus of a marsupial,
(c) bundles of primary wool follicles in sheep, and
(d) the development of the epidermis and hair canals in the Merino sheep foetus.
