cil·i·ar·y mus·cle

[TA]
the intrinsic smooth muscle of the ciliary body of eyeball; it consists of circular fibers [TA] (fibrae circulares [TA]), radial fibers [TA] (fibrae radialis [TA]), meridional fibers [TA] (fibrae meridionales [TA]), and longitudinal fibers [TA] (fibrae longitudinales [TA]); action, in contracting, its diameter is reduced (like a sphincter's), reducing tensile (stretching) forces on lens, allowing the lens to thicken for near vision (accommodation).

cil·i·ar·y mus·cle

(sil'ē-ar-ē mŭs'ĕl) [TA]
The smooth muscle of the ciliary body; it consists of circular fibers (Müller muscle) and radiating fibers (meridional fibers, or Brücke muscle); action, in contracting, its diameter is reduced (like a sphincter), reducing tensile (stretching) forces on lens, allowing it to thicken for near vision (accommodation).
Synonym(s): musculus ciliaris [TA] .

ciliary muscle

any muscle contained within the CILIARY BODY surrounding the lens of the vertebrate eye. Through attachment to the lens they change its shape and bring about ACCOMMODATION (1).

Bowman theory - that urine is formed by passive filtration through the glomeruli and secretion by the epithelium of the tubules.

(sil'ē-ar-ē mŭs'ĕl) [TA]
The smooth muscle of the ciliary body; action, in contracting, its diameter is reduced (like a sphincter), reducing tensile (stretching) forces on ocular lens, allowing it to thicken for near vision (accommodation).

Grazing potential of the area can be improved by planting/reseeding native palatable trees, shrubs and grasses such as Sakkar (Ehretia laevis), Peeli Buti (Abutilon indicum), Gangir (Grewia populafolia) and Buffel grass (Cenchrus ciliaris) etc.

Common buffelgrass (Cenchrus ciliaris L.) is widely disseminated in semiarid regions of Texas and Northeastern Mexico; hewever, seasonality of rainfall and low temperatures are the major influences on its nutritional quality (Ramirez et al., 2003b).
