Correspondingly, how many pairs of somites are there?

In humans 42-44 somite pairs 9 - 13 are formed along the neural tube. These range from the cranial region up to the embryo's tail. Several caudal somites disappear again, which is why only 35-37 somite pairs can be counted in the end.

how many somites are in a 24 hour chick? Dorsal view ( X 14) of entire chick embryo having 4 pairs of mesodermic somites (about 24 hours incubation). Study of transverse sections of an embryo of this stage affords a clearer interpretation of the conditions in neural groove formation than the study of entire embryos.

Also Know, what are the somites?

The somites (outdated term: primitive segments) are a set of bilaterally paired blocks of paraxial mesoderm that form in the embryonic stage of somitogenesis, along the head-to-tail axis in segmented animals.

How many somites are in a 33 hour chick?

Stage 33 hours At about 33 hours after fertilization, the embryo is about 4 mm long and the first flexion of the originally straight embryo starts in the head region and the cranial flexure will be visible a few hours later. At this stage 12 to 13 somites are formed.
