... 11D5819N Cranial morphology Feeding mechanics Muscle architecture Geometric morphometrics Summary: Feeding mechanics in caecilians is complex. No relationships between bite force and skull shape were detected, but our results do suggest variation in how caecilians use their jaw-closing...

... the taxon Aves into the Palaeognathae and the Neognathae. The Palaeognathae is a small taxon, approximately 60 species, vs 8000 species in the Neognathae. Only a few, mainly cranial,morphological characters distinguish the Palaeognathae from the Neognathae( Olson, 1985 ). The most important character...

... investigated more demanding than in neognathous feeding. This indicates that the specific morphology of the PPC is not the result of specific functional demands from palaeognathous feeding behaviour. Also the hypothesised role of rhynchokinesis in relation to the cranial morphology could not be confirmed...
