Effect of Microstructure of Spongy Bone in Different Parts of Woodpecker’s Skull on Resistance to Impact Injury

Figure 2

The microstructural parameters of spongy bone on the forehead, temporomandibular, and occiput for Great Spotted Woodpecker (GSW), Grey Headed Woodpecker (GHW), Eurasian hoopoe (EH), Mongolian skylark (MSL), and Great Tit (GT). Significance was assigned as ; . (a) Bone volume fraction (BV/TV); (b) structural model index (SMI); (c) trabecular number (Tb.N); (d) trabecular thickness (Tb.Th); (e) trabecular separation (Tb.Sp); (f) bone mineral density (BMD).
