Abstract Planaria Dugesia and Annelid Lumbriculus were observed in three different solutions (freshwater, 2.5mM locostatin, and 2.5 mM colchicine) after being cut in half sagittally.  The purpose of this experiment was to test the significance of the worms’ environment on their regeneration process. Over the course of ten days, all worms in colchicine eventually died while both species of worms in freshwater and in locostatin solution survived and successfully completed regeneration.  The results are significant because it exemplifies that regeneration […]
