Dorsally, the smaller and simpler nasoturbinate or dorsal concha is suspended as a downgrowth of the nasal bone. As well as the intricate set of tiny airways between the individual folds of the turbinates, larger airspaces exist between these turbinates. 8 A preserved canine head sectioned approximately in the midline. ventral meatus between the palate and the ventral concha, the middle meatus between the ventral and dorsal conchae, the small dorsal meatus between the dorsal concha and the roof of the nasal cavity, and the common meatus between both conchae and the nasal septum.
