Study was undertaken to provide a reference for the gross anatomy of the sternum of emu as one of the ratite species and also to compare the structural differences with sternum of duck and turkey. The sternum from four adult emu, turkey and duck were collected and used for the present study. The sternum was a large unsegmented bone located on the antero-ventral aspect of the body cavity, bowl-shaped in emu, triangular in turkey and rectangular in duck. It consisted of deeply concave dorsal… Expand

Gross and Morphometrical Studies on the Sternum of Blue Bull (Boselaphus tragocamelus)
TLDR
The sacrum of adult Blue bull (Boselaphus tragocamelus) of either sex was found to be almost triangular in shape and consisted of five segments and the cranial articular processes were reported to be large, concave medially and convex laterally. Expand
Gross anatomical studies on the sternum of blue and yellow macaw (Ara ararauna)
The sternum of blue and yellow macaw was comprised of a manubrium sterni or sternal spine, a body and a sternal crest. The manubrium sterni was thick upwardly bent spine-like process arose only fromExpand
A study on the sternum growth and mineralization kinetic of meat duck from 35 to 63 days of age
TLDR
Results indicate that the dimensions of the sternum were already at the maximum in 49‐day‐old ducks andThe sternum of the ducks rapidly mineralized from 42 d to 49 d of age and achieved a plateau phase after 49‐days resulting from the high activity of ALP at the sternums early mineralization.

Calcium affects sternal mass by effects on osteoclast differentiation and function in meat ducks fed low nutrient density diets.
TLDR
It is concluded that LND diet with 0.7% or more Ca may maintain optimal sternal mass through suppressing bone resorption for meat duck through maintaining proportionate essential nutrient proportions to energy similar as in the PC diet. Expand
Effects of commercial premix vitamin level on sternum growth, calcification and carcass traits in meat duck
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of dietary vitamin level on sternum growth, calcification and carcass traits in meat duck indicates that high-vitamin level did not affect the examined carcass trait; however, high- vitamin level improved growth performance and sternum calcification. Expand
