Our ontogeny, Dr. Raye, is so simple that it can scarcely be said to exist at all.
This, however, had better also be deferred to the chapter on ontogeny.
Comparative anatomy, physiology, and ontogeny are of the first importance.
It relies on the facts of paleontology, and fills up the gaps in this by comparative anatomy and ontogeny.
Did this law not obtain, the ontogeny would lose much of the interest which it now possesses for us.
ontogeny teaches unmistakably that its elementary organs, the epidermic cells, develop entirely from the ectoderm.
