Developmental and Evolutionary Significance of the Zygomatic Bone

Abstract

The zygomatic bone is derived evolutionarily from the orbital series. In most modern mammals the zygomatic bone forms a large part of the face and usually serves as a bridge that connects the facial skeleton to the neurocranium.
