FIG. 12. SECTION OF A BLASTODERM OF A FOWL'S EGG AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF INCUBATION

The thin but complete upper layer ep composed of columnar cells rests on the incomplete lower layer I, composed of larger and more granular cells.

The lower layer is thicker in some places than in others, and is especially thick at the periphery.

The line below the under layer marks the upper surface of the white yolk.

The larger so-called formative cells are seen at b, lying on the white yolk.

The figure does not take in quite the whole breadth of the blastoderm; but the reader must understand that both to the right hand and the left ep is continued farther than I, so that at the extreme edge it rests directly on the white yolk.
