  author={Perro y Cabra and B M Kavoi},
Morphometric parameters of olfactory brain components show species-dependent variations. However, the association of these parameters with olfactory function vis-à-vis ecological and evolutionary behaviors is poorly understood. I n this study, a morphometric analysis of the olfactory bulb, tract and stria was carried out in three ecologically diverse animals com prising humans (primate), dogs (carnivore) and goats (herbivore) to elucidate differences in morphometry in relation to olfactory… CONTINUE READING
