Courses of anatomy directed veterinary medicine and animal anatomy for students of courses of graduation in the areas of agrarian and biological sciences, use anatomical material proceeding from domestic animals in considerable volume. The use of the material of the laboratories of anatomy for studies of frequency of anatomical variations constitutes way of together contribution to the applied areas, such as the surgery and the clinic.
