BACKGROUND Comparative studies of ultrastructural features of tongues allow deductions to be made about relationships between structure and function, as reflected by an animal's feeding habits. The present study was performed to serve as a basis for further studies of avian feeding mechanisms and of relationships between the fine structure of the lingual epithelium and the development of the expression of keratins. METHODS The light microscope, scanning electron microscope, and transmission… CONTINUE READING
