We have previously reconstructed the gas exchange tissue of the adult muscovy duck, Cairina moschata using a method of manually aligning sections and tracing the contours of the components of the gas exchange tissue. This reconstruction method demonstrated that the air capillaries are comprised of an expanded globular part interconnected by narrow air channels. The blood capillaries completely surround the air capillaries forming an anastomosing meshwork of short segments. However, the… CONTINUE READING
