THE MORPHOLOGY OF THE PRIMATE SPLEEN,
FORT DETRICK FREDERICK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
The material studied included 31 specimens Two prosimians, 23 simians including 7 anthropomorphs and five human specimens. Spleens of the same species showed such close similarity that the morphological variability within a species must be considered slight. When the whole series from the prosimians to the human is viewed in its totality, the splenic forms which initially seemed multifarious, pattern themselves into a phylogenetic sequence.
