Wing and tail myology of Tyto furcata (Aves, Tytonidae)
(Veterinary and Human Toxicology, 2020-04)
Barn Owls (Tytonidae) are nocturnal raptors with the largest geographical distribution among Strigiformes. Several osteological, morphometrical, and biomechanical studies of this species were performed by previous authors. ...
Teleostean Phylogeny Based on Osteological and Myological Characters
(Sociedad Chilena de Anatomía, 2008)
Relationship between myological variables and different take-off and landing behaviours in frogs
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2019-03-01)
Although landing behaviour in anurans differs significantly among species, a take-off behaviour seems to be largely conserved in the evolution of frogs and toads. The ancestral mode of landing is hypothesized to involve ...
Comparative myology of the ankle of Leopardus wiedii and L. geoffroyi (Carnivora: Felidae): functional consistency with osteology, locomotor habits and hunting in captivity
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2017-12-26)
Leopardus wiedii (margay) is the only arboreal Neotropical felid able to climb head-first down trees, due to its ability to rotate its tarsal joint 180°. A closely related, similar-sized species, L. geoffroyi (Geoffroy´s ...
The Functional and Phylogenetic Implications of the Myology of the Lumbar Region, Tail, and Hind Limbs of the Lesser Grison (Galictis cuja)
Mustelids are a morphofunctionally diversified group. However, there are no descriptions of the postcranial musculature of South American mustelid species except for some comments from the 19th century. Here, we present ...
Anatomy and evolution of the mandibular, hyopalatine, and opercular muscles in characiform fishes (Teleostei: Ostariophysi)
(ELSEVIER GMBH, URBAN & FISCHER VERLAGJENA, 2012)
The Characiformes are distributed throughout large portions of the freshwaters of Africa and America. About 90% of the almost 2000 characiform species inhabit the American rivers, with their greatest diversity occurring ...
The pelvic and hindlimb myology of the basal titanosaur Epachthosaurus sciuttoi (Sauropoda: Titanosauria)
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-10)
Epachthosaurus sciuttoi is a basal titanosaur from the early Late Cretaceous of central Patagonia, Argentina. Here, we present the reconstruction of the pelvic and hindlimb musculature of this titanosaur, based on the soft ...
The hindlimb myology of Milvago chimango (Polyborinae, Falconidae)
We describe the hindlimb myology of Milvago chimango. This member of the Falconidae: Polyborinae is a generalist and opportunist that can jump and run down prey on the ground, unlike Falconinae that hunt birds in flight ...
The cranio-mandibular complex of the nightjar Systellura longirostris (Aves, Caprimulgiformes): functional relationship between osteology, myology and feeding
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2019-02)
Here we address the morphology of the cranial musculoskeletal in the South American Band-winged nightjar (Systellura longirostris, Caprimulgiformes, Aves) with the focus upon in how the mouth closure and opening mechanism ...
Cladistic analysis of teiidae based on myological characters
(Folium Publishing Co., 2000-12)
The cranial musculature of twelve (12) species of all genera of Teiidae was compared and analyzed for taxonomic significance. Using 70 myological cranial characters a cladistic analysis of the taxa mentioned was performed. ...
