I have a couple students interested in learning about worms.  I 
started them off by asking them to make some whole mounts and then 
perhaps make some whole mounts of developing embryos.  Are there any 
good protocols for these procedures??  We did some today on a trial 
basis.  Got some nice worms using Borax-Carmine stain although I 
think the stain should have been re-filtered before use.  What stains 
do you use??  I used Carnoy's for a fixative to which I added a drop 
of picric acid to give the worm "color".

Anybody out there have any other ideas????

Thanks much!!
