Morphometry and allometry of the postnatal lung development in the quokka wallaby (Setonix brachyurus): a light microscopic study.

The postnatally developing lungs of the quokka wallaby, Setonix brachyurus, were investigated macroscopically and by light microscopic morphometry. Lung, parenchymal and non-parenchymal volumes as well as the components of the latter two were analysed by regression analysis. The lungs comprised a single undivided left lung and a right lung with an adherent… CONTINUE READING
