STRUCTURE AND POSTNATAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE TONGUE OF JAPANESE QUAILx
S. Maya, Lucy Pally
There has been limited systematic study on the structure and postnatal development of the tongue of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica). Soils and Quitazol (1964) made an account of the gross anatomical observations on the digestive system of the species, whereas Warner et al. (1967) studied the microanatomy of the upper digestive tract of the bird. The present study is aimed to elucidate the morphology and histology of the tongue of Japanese quail at different stages of development.
