Jaw Musculature Of the Mourning and White winged Doves

BY

ROBERT L. MERZ

For some time many investigators have thought that the genus Zenaida , which includes the White winged and Zenaida doves, and the genus Zenaidura , which includes the Mourning, Eared, and Socorro doves (Peters, 1937:83 88), are closely related, perhaps more closely than is indicated by separating the several species into two genera. It is the purpose of this paper to report investigations on the musculature of the jaw of doves with the hope that, together with the results of other studies, the relationships of the genera Zenaida and Zenaidura can be elucidated.

METHODS AND MATERIALS

In order to determine in each species the normal pattern of musculature of the jaws, heads of 13 specimens of doves were dissected (all material is in the Museum of Natural History of The University of Kansas): White winged Doves ( Zenaida asiatica ), 40323, 40324, 40328, 40392, 40393; Zenaida Doves ( Z...
