Resumen

JERBI, Hassen; BAYOUDH, Mohamed; CLAUSS, Marcus  y  PEREZ, William. Gross Anatomy of the Stomach of the Dorcas Gazelle (Gazella Dorcas, Linnaeus, 1758). Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.4, pp.1266-1270. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022016000400015.

The macroscopic anatomy of the stomach in four adult dorcas gazelle was described. Four adult, two male and two female dorcas gazelle (Gazella dorcas) of the Frigya Zoological Park, Enfidha, Tunisie, were used in this study. The ruminal papillae were distributed unequally in the rumen, and were larger and more abundant within the atrium and in the two saccus cecus. The papillae were absent in dorsal part of the dorsal sac. The ruminal pillars had no papillae. The cellulae reticuli were divided and contained secondary and tertiary crests. The curvatura omasi measured 12.1±0.1 cm. A comparison with literature data for sand gazelles (Gazella subgutturosa marica) emphasises that differences between closely related species that fill similar niches cannot be expected to follow a clear pattern, but yield an inhomogenous picture, with some measurements more tending towards a specific feeding type in the one, and some other measurements tending more towards that feeding type in the other species.We concluded that the stomach morphology of the dorcas gazelle indicates the'cattle-type' morphophysiology representative for intermediate feeders.
