Colonial anemone Featured 5 Dec 2005 Print

Colonial anemone

Colonial anemone (Nemantus annamensis) attached to a gorgonian sea fan (Gorgonia sp.). Also referred to as the Gorgonian wrapper anemone, this species associates with other filter feeders such as sea fans and black coral. It benefits from growing over parts of these organisms because they often grow orientated against the current to maximize their food supply. It is found in the Indo-Pacific region. Photographed in the Red Sea, Egypt

Torso blood vessels Featured 5 Dec 2005 Print

Torso blood vessels

Torso blood vessels. Historical artwork of a human torso that has been dissected to show major blood vessels. The heart (upper centre) pumps blood to the lungs on either side (to be oxygenated), and then receives the blood returning from the lungs and pumps it round the body through the aorta (the main body artery). Arteries branch out to the neck and arms (top) from the aortic arch. The rest of the aorta passes behind the heart and takes blood downwards to the abdomen and legs. The two kidneys (centre left and centre right) clean the blood. Ureters descend from the kidneys to the bladder (round, bottom centre). Veins return blood to the main body vein (the vena cava, left of aorta) that channels the blood back into the heart. The lung and kidney at left have been dissected

Spinal vertebrae Featured 5 Dec 2005 Print

Spinal vertebrae

Spinal vertebrae. Historical artwork of vertebrae (spinal bones) seen from the side. The rear of the spine is at right. Four vertebrae are seen here. The blocks of bone at left bear most of the weight that is supported by the spine. The spine is cushioned by discs of cartilage between each vertebra (the cartilage is not shown here, only the spaces are shown). The projecting bits of bone at right are the processes of each vertebra, and are where the back ligaments and muscles attach to the spine. The spinal cord (not shown here) runs at right of the vertebral blocks, in a space called the vertebral canal. The main spinal column contains 24 vertebrae. These are thoracic (chest) vertebrae
