  • Intratendinous ossification (tenostosis; Tendo ossificans) is a distinct structural form feature of the avian musculoskeletal system with different definitions in terms of morphogenesis, resultant morphology, and functional role(s). Interpretation of these structural elements and their pattern(s) among avian taxa at different systematic levels is reviewed with regard to age‐related changes in tendon, form features in avian phylogeny, and adaptive features in biomechanics and kinematics of… CONTINUE READING
