Functional anatomy of the vomeronasal complex in the embryonic development of the pig ( Sus scrofa dom. )

The vomeronasal complex of 5 different aged pig embryos Sus scrofa dom. Linnaeus, 1758 with a total length (TL) of 330, 180, 75, 50 and 45 mm respectively were studied. In all cases the nasopalatal part surrounding Jacobson's organ was generally established. During the studied period of development the completion of details within the cartilaginous supporting structures were of primary interest.
