Short summary
For the first time internal structures of the nasal region were studied in different ontogenetic stages of selected species of tree shrews (Scandentia) based on histology and µCT. The observed morphology of the turbinal skeleton reveals important characters for future systematic analyses. The pattern of the interorbital septum, a bony plate that separates the orbits, and its relevance for the closely related Primates are discussed in terms of ontogeny and functional morphology.
