While hunting down info. on Ocellated turks, this unusual tome appeared: I was able to secure a hard copy from Lee Kirk at: http://www.printsandthepaper.com/about.asp? ,whose daughter (before her untimely death) was a member of an earlier iteration of BYC (small world). According to the introduction, the initial dissections (BBB's and White Hollands) took place out at UC Davis in 1943. The AEC's Division of Medicine published it in 1969. It is more than thorough (259 pg./beautiful line drawings). If anyone else is interested, you can `adopt' (sponsor) the book and the Dept. of Commerce's digitizing bureau will, for ~$60.00, scan it as an Adobe Acrobat image file and place it on their site for download. http://www.osti.gov/energycitations/product.biblio.jsp?osti_id=4811958 I'm just scanning everything in multiple formats at present. Now, as to why the AEC (now DOE) took this interest in galliformes is anyone's guess. I can find nothing in the above ground test (s) info about turkeys being used as either sentinels or as some other bioassay (plenty of beagles and sheep, but no turks).
