A detailed description of the osteology, the arthrology and the myology of the jaw apparatus of the pigeon (Columba livia, L., race White Carneau) has been made as a base to study the interaction between the morphology of the jaw apparatus and its functioning during ontogeny. The section on arthrology comprises a series of elements not described earlier. These are the Lig. palatomaxillare, the Lig. quadratosphenoidale and the Lig. quadratotemporale. Also the sections on osteology and myology comprise many features additional to earlier descriptions. For example a description of the aponeurotic complex, comprising three aponeurotic slips, through which the Musc. adductor mandibulae externus originates was not made earlier.
