Histological Technique for Endocrine Glands of Birds

Abstract

WE have been making histological preparations of all the recognized endocrine organs (including thymus) of the common wild duck (Anas platyrhyncha p.L.) for some time. In the course of this work we gained some experience in the use of a number of methods of histological procedure as applied to these tissues, and it seems to us that our findings may be of value to others.
