Structure and biomechanical properties of the trachea of the striped dolphin Stenella coeruleoalba: evidence for evolutionary adaptations to diving.
This study analyzes the structure and mechanical properties of the trachea of the striped dolphin Stenella coeruleoalba, one of the most common cetacean species. The cetacean trachea is made up ofExpand

Age dependent changes in plasma anti-Müllerian hormone concentrations in the bovine male, female, and freemartin from birth to puberty: relationship between testosterone production and influence on
To understand the behaviour of the gonads, in terms of hormonal secretion, in a model of intersexual development naturally occurring in mammals, we determined plasma concentrations of testosterone,Expand

Cross-sectional anatomy of the rabbit neck and trunk: comparison of computed tomography and cadaver anatomy.
Computed tomographic images of the neck, thorax and abdomen in four healthy adult rabbits were obtained with a conventional CT using a slice-thickness of 5mm. CT images were obtained with the animalsExpand

An overview of the central nervous system of the elephant through a critical appraisal of the literature published in the XIX and XX centuries
The two species of elephants (Indian: Elephas maximus and African: Loxodonta africana) possess the largest brain among land mammals. Due to its size, the elephant brain is discussed in virtuallyExpand

Experimental and computational biomechanical characterisation of the tracheo-bronchial tree of the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) during diving.
Dolphins have adapted their anatomic structures to survive in the water environment and so far, the behaviour of their respiratory system during diving has not been fully understood, since they beingExpand

Sexual differences and effect of photoperiod on melatonin receptor in avian brain
Several data suggest that melatonin may influence avian reproduction by acting at the level of the hypothalamic‐hypophisial‐gonadal axis, and/or on neural circuits controlling reproductiveExpand

The claustrum of the bottlenose dolphin Tursiops truncatus (Montagu 1821)
The mammalian claustrum is involved in processing sensory information from the environment. The claustrum is reciprocally connected to the visual cortex and these projections, at least in carnivores,Expand
