SUMMARY

The adrenal histology of Chelonia amyda is described and emphasis placed upon the interpenetration of the interrenal and chromaffin tissues and on their structural relationships with the vascular endothelium. Diastase-resistant polysaccharide complexes are present within the chromaffin-reactive cells. Alkaline glycerophosphatase is absent from the interrenal tissues but present in the chromaffin tissues, especially in the intercellular material.
