  262. 6 functions of feathers
    • Form of epidermis
    • streamlining,
    • trap air,

    • (Contour, Primary, Secondary)
  264. Molting

  269. Avian Pectoral girdle
    Complete.  Bone attaches.  3 bones.  Coracoid, Scapula, Clavicle (wishbone).  (Keel)
  270. Avian antebrachium
    ulna is larger in diameter where secondaries attach. 
  271. Alula
    1st finger--for steering.  Looks like a dewclaw
  272. Synsacrum
    Avian fused vertebrae and pelvis (sacrum, some coccygeal, some lumbar)
  273. Avian pelvic limb
    • short, wide femur
    • tibiotarsal (fibia small, splint)
    • tarsometatarsus
  274. Bird sternum
    Keel.  Large and concave.
  275. Bird flight adaptations
    • wing shape
    • Feathers
    • Torpedo-shaped for less drag
    • Fewer, pneumatic bones. 
    • lightweight beak instead of jaw
    • keel to attach flight muscles
    • muscular system
    • extra air sacs for lightness
  276. Feather parts
    Quill (calamus), Shaft (racis), vane
  277. white muscle fibers
    thick, low blood supply, little myoglobin, stores glycogen for muscle contraction.  Found in flight muscles of short distance fliers like chickens. 
  278. red muscles
    thinner, rich supply of blood, fat, myoglobin, mitochondria.  Long-distance flight muscles.  Waterbirds, songbirds, pigeons, birds of prey.  Dark meat.
  279. patagium
    web of skin that extends from shoulder to the wrist. 
  280. Avian respiratory system
    lungs small, air sacs throughout for lightness, warmth and moisture, lower center of gravity.  uni-directional, takes 2 inspirations and expirations to move one pocket of air. 
  281. bird brain
    no wrinkles, well-developed instinct-center, large optic lobe
  282. Passive stay apparatus: shoulder flexion
    biceps brachii tendon pulls to prevent joint flexion.  Serratus ventralis
  283. Serratus ventralis
    holds front of body like a swing between ribs and scapula
  284. Passive stay apparatus: elbow flexion
    collateral ligaments (inside ligaments), triceps brachii
  285. joints and bones of horse limb
    os coxae, hip, femur, patella, stifle, tibia/fibula, hock (tarsal bones), Cannon and splint bones (metatarsus), Seasmoid bones, fetlock, long pastern, short pastern, coffin bone
  286. Passive stay apparatus: carpus flexion
    Lacertus fibrosus, Extensor carpi radialis.  Also accessory ligaments (SDF, DDF, Accessory ligaments of SDF and DDF)
  287. Passive stay apparatus: carpal hyperextension
    block shape of carpal bones, palmar carpal ligament
  288. fetlock hyperextension
    • suspensory apparatus.  Extensor branch of the interosseus, suspensory ligament (interosseus).  (also Distal sesamoidean ligaments, Accessory ligament of DDF), superficial digital flexor, deep digital flexor
    • Transfer tension in tendon to bone.  Accessory ligament of SDF, accessory ligament of DDF
  289. Passive stay apparatus: Pastern hyperextension
    Palmar ligament, sesamoidean, flexor tendons
  290. Passive stay apparatus: Pastern buckling
    Double attachment of superficial digital flexor, on both sides of joint
  291. Passive stay apparatus: Patella lock
    Medial patellar ligament hooks over medial ridge of trochlea to prevent flexion of stifle.  Also, 3 patellar tendons (dogs and cats have one).  Medial patellar ligament, middle patellar ligament, lateral patellar ligament
  292. reciprocal apparatus of the equine hind leg
    2 tendonous cords that run from hock to stifle.  Both joints must bend together.  Superficial digital flexor (back), Peronius tertius (front).  Patella lock fixes stifle, which fixes hock. 
  293. Unguligrade

  294. plantigrade
    humans.  Walk on metatarsals
  295. digitigrade
