Abstract

The digestive system consists of (1) a convoluted 26-foot epithelium-lined tube (Fig. 12.1), and (2) a number of associated glands derived by evagination and extended growth of the epithelium into or through the other layers of the tube. This chapter deals with the first of these two major subdivisions.
