dc.description.abstractThe dissections upon which the following account of the limb myology of the Koala is based were carried out at the Anatomical Laboratory of Melbourne University, under the superintendence of Professor Berry; and the work forms part of an extensive enquiry into the anatomy of the whole animal.en
dc.description.abstractThree specimens of the Phascolarctus Cinereus were placed at my disposal - an adult male, an adult female, and a young female, and Professor Berry has kindly allowed me to use the material for this thesis.en
dc.description.abstractIn the dissection of these three animals several peculiar - ities in the arrangement of the muscles were met with, which have not been hitherto recorded, and as these were constant in each of the three specimens, they may be regarded as definite and characteristic, and not merely individual variations.en
dc.description.abstractThe literature on the subject is limited and consists of Professor Youngs "Muscular Anatonzr of the Koala" (Jour.Ana t. & Phys, vol.XVI p.217) and Professor Macalister's "Muscular Anatol of the Koala" (Ann.Mag.Nat.Hiat,1872) Professor Cunningham has given a very detailed account of the muscles of the pes in the "Challenger Reports" - vol.V, part XVI.en
dc.description.abstractIn his paper "On the Myology of Notoryctes Typhlops ", Professor Wilson of Sydney makes some comparative observations on a few individual muscles, from his own dissections, of Koala.en
dc.description.abstractThe descriptions of the muscles have been illustrated by photographs, which accompany this manuscript, in a separate volume.en
dc.description.abstractI propose to give first an account of each muscle, its origin, course, and insertion, and general description; also its nerve supply when that is necessary for its differentiation.en
dc.description.abstractAt the conclusion of the paper I have given a resume of those muscles which differ from the descriptions of them given by former observers; at the same time adding comparative notes of previous records of these muscles in Koala, and also in the other members of the Marsupialia, whose myology has been recorded, and to which I have had access.en
