Nephridium
The nephridium (plural nephridia) is an invertebrate organ which occurs in pairs and performs a function similar to the vertebrate kidney. Nephridia remove metabolic wastes from an animal's body. They are present in many different invertebrate lines. There are two basic types, metanephridia and protonephridia, but there are other types.Contents1 Metanephridia1.1 Saccate metanephridia2 Protonephridia 3 References 4 External linksMetanephridia[edit]Earthworm metanephridium (9).Earthworm metanephridiumA metanephridium (meta = "after") is a type of excretory gland found in many types of invertebrates such as annelids, arthropods and mollusca. (In mollusca, it is known as the Bojanus organ.) A metanephridium typically consists of a ciliated funnel opening into the bodycavity or coelom connected to a duct which may be variously glandularized, folded or expanded (vesiculate) and which typically opens to the organism's exterior

Rennie Wilbur Doane (March 11, 1871 – December 1, 1942), was an American entomologist and zoologist who taught at Stanford University from 1906 to 1937. He studied the taxonomy of dipterans (flies) and wrote several textbooks on insects and economic entomology.[1][2] Doane was born in Des Moines, Iowa, and grew up in Kansas and Southern California. He entered Stanford University in 1891, graduating with a bachelor's degree in zoology and entomology. He taught zoology and entomology at Washington State College from 1896 to 1901, and was superintendent of the Fisheries Experimental Station in Keyport, Washington, from 1901 to 1903, working mainly in oyster cultivation. He joined the faculty of Stanford in 1906 as instructor, becoming associate professor in 1920 and full professor in 1926.[1] He studied the taxonomy of flies, especially crane flies, of which he described over 150 species.[3] Books[edit]Insects and Disease
