Roxana Lazăr, R. Deju, S. Catanoiu, P.C. Boişteanu
The study aims to characterize morphology of cellular elements and the haematological profile of bison raised in Reserve Dragos Voda Neamt by reference to the bovine herds maintained in the same area, which had similar growth conditions and maintenance. Analysis results allow identification of quantitative and qualitative approach and differentiation of erythrocyte and leukocyte series studied. Morphological similarities of expression stand for blood cell elements and limits of variation of the constants of variation for the two species.
