taxon notes
  • Turbinals are only ossified in birds and derived synapsids.
  • In humans, the turbinates divide the nasal airway into three groove-like air passages -and are responsible for forcing inhaled air to flow in a steady, regular pattern around the largest possible surface of cilia and climate controlling tissue.
