Ultrastructural and histological descriptions of the oropharyngeal cavity of the rock pigeon Columba livia dakhlae with special refer to its adaptive dietary adaptations

Abstract: The current investigation gave a full ultrastructural and histological description of the oropharyngeal cavity of the rock-pigeon Columba livia dakhlae. Our study carried on 10 heads of adult rock pigeons by gross, scanning, and light microscopic examination, in addition to the immunohistochemical analysis of the cytokeratin of the dorsal surface mucosa epithelium and the proliferating cell nuclear antigen expression (PCNA) immunoreactivity. The pointed apex of the elongated tongue covered rostrally and latera… Show more

“…The current study represents the first description of the entoglossal cartilaginous structure in the lingual body and root of the Egyptian tortoise. This structure is commonly found in the tongue of avian species (Abumandour & El-Bakary, 2019;Abumandour, El-Bakary, et al, 2021;Abumandour & Gewaily, 2019;El-Mansi, Al-Kahtani, Abumandour, Ezzat, & El-Badry, 2020;Gewaily & Abumandour, 2020) and has also been reported in the Nile grass rat (Massoud & Abumandour, 2019). oral cavity with the nasal cavity, similar to that described in; the Basal Tortoise (Heiss et al, 2011), the semiaquatic giant Asian pond turtle (Lintner et al, 2012) and the semiaquatic Malayan box turtle (Heiss et al, 2008).…”

“…Avian tongue shape had a species‐specific feature closely related to the lower beak shape, different feeding habits, and environmental adaptation (Abumandour, El‐Bakary, et al, 2021; El‐Mansi et al, 2021; Parchami et al, 2010; Parchami et al, 2010b). The avian species‐differences adaptation of the tongue with the size and shape of the lower beak was clear in the current examined tongue of the Eurasian common moorhen that fitted to the size of the lower beak, the same data shared in some avian species as; quail (Parchami et al, 2010), magpie and raven (Erdogan & Alan, 2012), and buzzard (Erdogan, & Alan AJMr, technique., 2012).…”

“…Some time ago, the avian tongue had more considerations from all scientists by various anatomical methods to its adaptation with the different feeding habits (Abumandour, Shukry, et al, 2021; Abumandour, Farrag, et al, 2021; Al‐Ahmady, 2016; Crole and Soley, 2010b; Jackowiak & Ludwig, 2008b; Kobayashi et al, 1998; Skieresz‐Szewczyk & Jackowiak, 2016). Over time, the anatomical researchers have resorted to investigating the oropharyngeal cavity and its adaptability with the obtainable food particles in different environmental conditions (Abumandour, El‐Bakary, et al, 2021; Abumandour, Farrag, et al, 2021; El‐Mansi et al, 2020; El‐Mansi et al, 2021; Gewaily & Abumandour, 2020; Mahdy, 2020).…”
