Value 2 unitless
Organism Hydra littoralis
Reference Campbell RD. Tissue dynamics of steady state growth in Hydra littoralis. I. Patterns of cell division. Dev Biol. 1967 May15(5):pp. 490 Table 1PubMed ID4382248
Method Hydra were placed into embryological salt dishes with just sufficient medium so that they could fully extend, and then were quickly flooded, to prevent contraction, with Lavdowsky’s fixative
Comments Mass culture were kept at 1 hydra per 12 ml of medium. Steady state hydra animals grown individually in 12 ml of medium each, and newly detached buds were removed
