The glandular regions of the upper digestive tract in the emu were non-pigmented (except for the tongue in most specimens) and invested by a non-keratinised stratified squamous epithelium. The glands found in these regions were exclusively simple in nature and composed of tubular secretory units lined by Periodic Acid Schiff Stain-positive mucus-secreting cells. The naming of the various glandular fields was based on previously identified anatomical features and on nomenclature modified from… CONTINUE READING
