Biology Laboratory Report Title: Microscopic Study of Different Developmental Stages of Egg of Frog Introduction: Frogs are amphibians and lay eggs in water. The development of a frog from fertilized egg to a juvenile amphibian is classified into four distinct stages viz. Fertilized Egg, Embryo, Tadpole and Juvenile Frog. These stages can be studied under the microscope for a detailed analysis of the developmental processes. The objective of this experiment is to study the morphological features of different developmental stages of egg of Frog. Materials and Methods: For this experiment, a compound light microscope was used. Frog eggs of different developmental stages (fertilized egg, embryo, tadpole and juvenile frog) were placed on a slide and examined under the microscope. The morphological features of the embryos were observed at 1000x magnification and the relevant data was noted down. Results: The fertilized egg of a frog had a thin, outer transparent membrane, through which the embryo inside was visible. The embryo had a small, black eye and three pairs of external gills. In addition, the embryonic pigmentation was also observed. The tadpole stage of the frog had a wide head and a long tail with four pairs of external gills. This stage also showed an increased pigmentation. At the juvenile frog stage, the body had the typical shape of a frog with an increased body size. The four external gills were also developed further and the eye showed an increased size. Discussion: The microscopic observation of different developmental stages of egg of Frog showcases the complex process of development from egg to a juvenile frog. The thin membrane of the fertilized egg protected the embryo from any external harm as it was developing inside. The three pairs of external gills observed in the embryo stage were essential for respiration and gas exchange. In the tadpole stage, the wide head and the long tail identified it as a frog. Finally, in the juvenile frog stage, the body had the typical shape of a frog. Conclusion: The microscopic study of different developmental stages of egg of Frog revealed the complexity of the process of development from egg to juvenile frog. The morphological features of the tadpole and juvenile frog stages were easily identifiable. These results demonstrate the usefulness of the compound microscope in studying the various stages of development of an organism.
