Splicing and transplantation of parts of the body from the lower animals

At the lower (invertebrate animals also easily manage and splicing, and various organ transplants. Soviet scientist C. I. Isaev its numerous experiments have shown that coelenterates animals - HYDR - possible direct and splices are almost unlimited. He cut two hydras throughout the length of their body, went through their walls in the form of flat plates, then combined the two plane deployed so HYDR and shear their pins. Already half an hour later came the merger and instead of two formed one of Hydra.
"The first time,writes Isaev,each half is still retained some degree of independence, which can be judged by the fact that both groups of tentacles declined independently. But after two or three days when between the halves, apparently, was established full communication, including and nervous, all the tentacles began to decline at once, and generally in behaviour of this new Hydra was impossible to find anything of this, whatever it was different from normal Hydra. Only its dimensions were larger. But all basic life functions - catching prey, swallowing, digesting, answers to irritation later budding and even oviposition was proceeding as if this Hydra was one individual, not composed of two".
C. M. Isaev've been splicing HYDR two different species that had different colors and getting a variety of color offspring.
Easy splicing in earthworms. In experiments Korselt spliced from several different pieces of earthworms lived until natural death.
