2 Abstract: Considering that present a complete and comprehensive study on the structure hasn't been done in turkey's syrinx. In this study 10 adult male and female turkey's pieces were examined for macroscopic and then microscopic structure. The results showed that the male had exactly position on the base of the heart and between first and second intercostals space under the second cervical vertebrae. Syrinx also in female position was near the base of the heart, between first and second…

The Gross Anatomy of the Syrinx of Adult Male Domestic Fowl Gal- lus gallus domesticus

The study shows that the syrinx of investigated birds is tracheobronchial in type, which consists of; tympanum, tracheosyringeal and bronchosy ringeal groups; and there are interbronchia ligament (brachidesm), lateral and medial vibrating membranes as well as the pessulus at the tracheal bifurcation.

Anatomical Structure of the Syrinx in the Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos)

It was determined that syrinx in male ducks was found to be asymmetrical and had a large expansion on the left side called bulla tympaniformis.


Sexual dimorphism were obtained, the males had significantly narrow tympanum than female, and whether there is any difference between the sexes, especially that males have characteristic high voice was studied.

Anatomical investigations of the syrinx (voice box) of the adult male West African guinea fowl (Numida meleagris galeata ) in the AL-Najaf AL-Ashraf province

Morphological examination of the syrinx in male West African guinea fowl (WAGF) at the second year of their age and (1244±114 g) the mean live weight which collected randomly from centre of the


Comparisons of gross anatomical, histological and histochemical structures of the larynx, trachea and syrinx between mature (Drake) and immature (Duckling) male ducks revealed that larynX of both Drake and Duckling are identical in position but differ in size.

Gross anatomical syringeal structures of goose (Anser anser domesticus)

There were some similarities and some differences of the anatomical structures of the syrinx of goose and that of other bird species.

Macroscopic study of syrinx in the common bulbul (Pycnontus barbatus) and indigenous pigeon (Columba domestica)

The syrinx was observed ventral to the esophagus exactly on the base of heart in the common bulbul, whilst in pigeon; the syrinX was hidden by the heart.

Anatomical, Histological, and Electron Microscopic Structures of Syrinx in Male Budgerigars (Melopsittacus undulatus)

The electron microscopic examination revealed numerous blood capillaries surrounded by fibroblasts and numerous immune cells, including mast cells and wandering leukocytes, within the tympanum mucosa, which provides a detailed knowledge about the syrinx in male budgerigars.

Histomorphological Study of Syrinx of Black Francolin (Francolinus francolinus) in Iraq

The syrinx of male and female adult black francolin was studied, the males had significantly narrow tympanum and right syringeal passage with thicker Syringeal labia than female and sexual dimorphism were obtained.

Comparative Morphological Features of Syrinx in Male Domestic Fowl Gallus gallus domesticus and Male Domestic Pigeon Columba livia domestica: A Histochemical, Ultrastructural, Scanning Electron Microscopic and Morphometrical Study

Electron microscopic examination of the syringes of fowls and pigeons revealed numerous immune cells including dendritic cells, plasma cells, mast cells, and lymphocytes distributed within syringeal mucosa and invading the Syringeal epithelium.



The Syrinx of the Male Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos): Special Anatomical Features

It can be stated that the syrinx in male adult mallards shows some notable specific anatomical features that might have an influence on vocalization, however, to understand the complex mechanism of vocalization in mallards, more investigations, especially obtained by sonography and endoscopy, will be needed.

[The structure of the syrinx in the duck (Anas platyrhinchos)].

The morphological and structural aspects of the Membrana tympaniformis medialis of the syrinx were studied with L.M. and E.M in 32 female and male Peking ducks from 6 to 12 months old to find this particular disposition seem to be well adapted to the contractions of the Syringeal muscles.

In situ biomechanics of the syrinx and sound generation in pigeons.

The in situ biomechanics of the vocal organ, the syrinx, was studied in anesthetized pigeons using fiberoptic instruments and the activity of the syringeal muscles appears to have a mainly modulatory function, suggesting that the basic sound-generation mechanism is similar in both air-induced and natural phonation.
