  • The barn owl has the longest basilar papilla (about 12 mm) of all bird species studied. In the apical half several morphological parameters change regularly: stereovillar number per hair cell, length of the stereovillar bundle and cell surface area decrease from basal to apical. Cell number across the papilla, width of stereovillar bundle, diameter of a single stereovillus and height of stereovilli increase in the same direction. The orientation of the stereovillar bundles' long axis is… CONTINUE READING
