Abstract:

The current study was designed with the aim to study the gross morphological features of the sternum in four dead birds of Common Moorhen. The sternum gives attachment to important flight muscles in birds. The dorsal view of sternal body of Common Moorhen was roughly pyramidal. The average length of sternal body was 4.2 centimetres. Sternal keel was highly developed. The average height of sternum was 1.1 centimetres, whereas the curvature length of keel was 4.7 centimetres.


Keywords: Gross morphological studies, Sternum, Moorhen.
