Figure 16.22

Patterns of cell death in leg primordia of (A) duck and (B) chick embryos. Shading indicates areas of cell death. In the duck, the regions of cell death are very small, whereas there are extensive regions of cell death in the interdigital tissue of the chicken leg. (After Saunders and Fallon 1966.)
