A comparative study was made of cytoarchitectonics, neuronal composition and ultrastructural organization of the three basic cortical zones (hippocampal, dorsal and pyriform) of the forebrain of four members of Chelonia (two aquatic and two land species). The features under study fall into three major groups as follows: (1) common to all the Chelonia under investigation and possibly of the entire order; (2) ecologically specific, i.e. common to animals with similar ecology and different in… CONTINUE READING
