Morphometric characteristics of the bone tissue structure in white Volga guineafowls

This article presents the results of the analysis of the morphometric structure of white Volga guineafowl's bone tissue. Histoarchitectonics of guineafowl bones' compact tissue is presented by circulatory-parallel structure; mixed, osteon, chaotic, and radial structure has been noted in many sectors and areas of bone. There are 4 ways of osteon arrangement in long bone's compact tissue of guineafowls: as zones, islands, scattered, and interspersed with circulatory-parallel structures. The walls of deep-lying osteons in the bones of birds under research (regardless of their age) are thicker than those of superficial osteons. The cross-section dimension of large Haversian canals in perimedullary zone in all long bones is bigger than in subperiosteal zone. © 2015 Kulikov et al.
