|GL||Greatest length (+)
|GLC||Greatest length from caput (head) (+)
|Bp||(Greatest) breadth of the proximal end. Not in canids or lagomorphs (-)
|Dp||Depth od the proximal end. Only in canids and lagomorphs.
|SD||Smallest breadth of the diaphysis (+)
|Bd||(Greatest) breadth of the distal end. Difficult to measure in rumiants and equids. because the most lateral and the most medial prominet points do not lie in the same plane and moreover the trochlea. especially in Bos. is oblique. If this distance is measured at right angles to the imaginated lingitudinal axis of the bone. the result is a disproportionately hight value. This measurement is therefore to be taken in equids and romiants. A slide gauge with broad callipers mus always be used (-)
