A small cavity. The same signification as cellule. Also, a vesicle composed of a membranous cell-wall, with, usually, liquid contents. The whole organized body may be regarded as a congeries of cells having different endowments, each set being concerned in special acts, connected with absorption, nutrition, and secretion, wherever an action of selection or elaboration has to be effected. These cells are generally termed primary, elementary, or primordial. When they give rise to other cells, they are, at times, termed parent or mother cells; the resulting cells being termed daughter cells.

(B), a cavity opening upon a free surface, such as the crypts in the stomach of the camel and other ruminants, the cavities in the nests of wasps and bees, the depression or loculus in the anther, which contains the pollen, and, by a slight extension of meaning, the spaces or areolae upon the wings of insects, circumscribed by the nervures. (C), in microscopical technology, a chamber, open or closed, used for the examination and preservation of objects. (D), one of the similar elements or open chambers which constitute a galvanic battery or a battery of Leyden jars.
