Text Appearing Before Image:
3^ NEW YORK STATE MUSEUM and is in contact with the rib for its entire length, sloping away below; in the last dorsal it appears only as an increased widening of the rib for a certain distance along the usual site of its occupancy. Sternal ribs agree with the dorsal ribs in being strong and robust; they possess quite extensive quadrate facets for sternal articulation at their lower ends, and these bones when articulated in situ are so placed that their anterior faces are visible from a direct lateral view.
Text Appearing After Image:
Fig. 15 Ribs of Cathartidae and Falconidae; m, rib from anterior dorsal vertebra, left side, Gymnogyps; n. the same from the second dorsal vertebra of Catharista urubu; o, the same from Neophron percnopterus; p, the same trom Circus hudsonius. All natural size. Their posterior ends are progressively, from before, backward, curved in such a manner as to preserve the oval form of the chest walls, and are very much dilated as we proceed in that direction; at their distal extremities they support the usual facets for the .verte- bral ribs. In the Secretary vulture they become very much com- pressed from side to side as we examine them successively in the order referred to, and in this course, too, in some of the Falconidae, they become curved in an anteroposterior direction, the concave margin being in front. In these birds, and in Neophron, the sternal ribs are seen to be much slenderer than corresponding bones in the Cathartidae (see fig. 15).
