Cover Legend

A mature, female colony of Hydractinia echinata. This marine hydroid is able to discriminate between its own tissues (self) and those belonging to genetically different individuals. The ontogeny of this allorecognition system has been studied by Fuchs et al. and the corresponding results are presented on pp. 699-704 of this issue. (Photograph by W.A.
