The moment of tooth: rate, fate, and pattern of Pacific lingcod dentition revealed by pulse-chase

Emily Carr, Adam Summers & Karly Cohen
Tooth replacement rates of polyphyodont cartilaginous and bony fishes are hard to determine because of lack of obvious patterning, and maintaining specimens long enough to observe replacement. Pulse-chase is a fluorescent technique that differentially colours developing mineralized tissue. We present in-situ tooth replacement rate and position data for the oral and pharyngeal detentions of Ophiodon elongatus (Pacific lingcod). We assessed over 10,000 teeth, in 20 fish, and found a daily replacement rate of about two...
