Flashcards in Transport in Animals Deck (6):
1

Are there neutrophils present in tissue fluid?

Yes

2

Is the hydrostatic pressure high or low in arterial blood?

High

3

Are there erythrocytes in lymph?

No

4

Benefits of closed transport system?

Maintains high blood pressure which increases the rate of flow

5

How is wall of artery adapted to withstand pressure?

Thick walls with collagen in which allows the wall to withstand great pressures. This means wall cannot damage as it has ability to stretch as endothelium is folded

6

How can artery walls maintain pressure?

Walls contain elastin which allows them recoil of lumen to original size which maintains pressure
Wall contain smooth muscle which mean lumen can constrict
