Talk:Cleavage (embryo)

The textbook I referenced has some of the information that I added but not all. The information is, for the most part, verifiable through Google searches, looking at the context in primary literature and in the lecture slides posted online by various teachers. If anyone has any better textbook or review article references to cite, please do so. IlliniWikipedian 18:01, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

link to Asters[edit]

Under Mechanisms, the link to "Asters" leads to a flower... This must be a mistake , 13:09, 12 March 2007 (UTC) Anat

Merge from Spiral and radial cleavage[edit]

Why is there a page for "spiral and radial cleavage" but no page for holoblastic cleavage. It seems like a very strange idea for a article; grouping two (of the four listed here) types of holoblastic cleavage together. I think there needs to be a separate page for holoblastic cleavage or just merge the spiral and radial cleavage page into Cleavage (embryo). Jack (talk) 19:51, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I tend to agree. This isn't a particularly long page and the articles aren't going anywhere fast. I merged spiral and radial together as well as determinate and indeterminate, but that was just a start. Merging both of them here sounds like a good idea to me. Just remember to add a merge template to this page too (multimerge is the one you'll want). Richard001 (talk) 06:15, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
Okay I've redirected this page as all the information (minus the links) was exactly the same. Jack (talk) 18:07, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Merge from Determinate and indeterminate cleavage[edit]

Some of the same reasons as above. They should be merged with cleavage as there is little content. Jack (talk) 22:53, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Fine with me. Richard001 (talk) 05:28, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
Okay that's done, though I think I've put it in the wrong place. Anyone with a little more knowledge want to sort it out? Cheers, Jack (talk) 04:39, 20 March 2008 (UTC)


In the summary, I'm not certain if the marsupials have radial, rotational or other type of cleavage (nothing was said about it in the books of Gilbert and Kardong). Comparing this illustration [1] (figure 11.21) and this other [2] (p. 46), I think they have rotational cleavage.Zorahia (talk) 23:04, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
