Abstract

Recently, in a paper read before the American Society of Zoologists, central section, the writer presented some observations which indicated that the lymphatic system of turtles has an origin more or less independent of the venous system. Since then later investigations on the Chelonian lymphatics confirm and strengthen this view. Even in the development of the posterior lymph hearts, which are generally conceded to be direct derivatives from early redundant embryonic veins, we find that the process is initiated, at least, by the dilation and confluence of mesenchymal spaces.
