Examples

  • These are what we call the "cytodes" (cytos = cell), certain living, independent beings, consisting only of a particle of plasson -- an albuminoid substance, which is not yet differentiated into caryoplasm and cytoplasm, but combines the properties of both.

  • However, these cytodes are not found, as a rule, in the higher animals and plants; here we have only real cells with a nucleus.

    The Evolution of Man — Volume 1

  • We comprise both kinds -- the cytodes and the cells -- under the name of plastids ( "formative particles"), because they are the real builders of the organism.

  • Those remarkable beings called the monera -- especially the chromacea and bacteria -- are specimens of these simple cytodes.

    The Evolution of Man — Volume 1

  • But we must, to be accurate, distinguish between the plasson of the cytodes and the protoplasm of the cells.

    The Evolution of Man — Volume 2

  • The earlier and lower stage are the unnucleated cytodes, the body of which consists of only one kind of albuminous matter -- the homogeneous plasson or "formative matter."

  • A phytomoneron, the round plastids of which (bluish-green in colour) secrete a shapeless gelatinous mass; in this the unnucleated cytodes increase continually by simple cleavage.)
