    A definition of the medical term "cloaca" is presented. Cloaca is a cavity lined with endoderm at the posterior end of the body. It serves as a common passageway for urinary, digestive, and reproductive ducts. It is an opening in the sheath covering necrosed bone, which exists in adult birds,...

    Intrinsic innervation of the developing chick cloaca is provided by the enteric nervous system, a network of neurons and glia that lies within its walls. The enteric nervous system originates from neural crest cells that migrate from the vagal and sacral regions of the neural tube during the...

    A description of the body part cloaca is presented. It refers to the body cavity into which the intestinal, urinary, and genital canals empty in birds, reptiles, amphibians, most fish, and the primitive mammals known as monotremes. The cloaca has an opening for expelling its contents from the body.

    The cloaca, the caudal limit of the avian gastrointestinal tract, acts as a collecting chamber into which the gastrointestinal, urinary, and genital tracts discharge. It is intrinsically innervated by the enteric nervous system, which is derived from neural crest émigrés that migrate from...

    A system is presented which uses a Hall sensor and an adjacent magnet, attached close to the cloaca of penguins, to record defecation, respiration and heart rates for both free-living birds and those in captivity. The output of the Hall sensor depends on a magnetic field, the strength of which...
