  Article Content


In Greek mythology, Carpus "fruit" was a son of Chloris and Boreas.
In tetrapods, the carpus is the cluster of bones in the hand between the radius and ulna and the metacarpus[?]. The bones of the carpus do not belong to individual fingers, whereas those of the metacarpus do. The joint between the radius and ulna and the carpus is called the wrist. The corresponding part of the foot is the tarsus.
