Fine structure of the basilar papilla of the emu: implications for the evolution of avian hair-cell types.

Köppl, C. ; Gleich, Otto ; Schwabedissen, G. ; Siegl, E. ; Manley, G. A.


The morphology of the basilar papilla of the emu was investigated quantitatively with light and scanning electron microscopical techniques. The emu is a member of the Paleognathae, a group of flightless birds that represent the most primitive living avian species. The comparison of the emu papilla with that of other, more advanced birds provides insights into the evolution of the avian papilla. ...
