dc.description.abstractAs mentioned in the Introduction, the so-called suprarenal capsules were first recognised by Bartholomews Bustachius ianctoseverinatus, in the year 1564„ and from many points of view, the manner in which knowledge of the adrenals has grown since then is highly intriguing. However, in this survey of the adrenal gland of Sheep, it is perhaps only apposite to note that in 1716, the Aoademie des Sciences of Bordeaux offered a prise for an answer to the questions "Quel est l'usage des glands surrenales?" limy extraordinary theories were forthcoming in solution of the problem and finally this 16th century quiz was closed with the statements "Le hasard fera peut-etre quelqua Jour oe que tous les soins n'ont pu faire."en
dc.description.abstractThis chance was not long in coming, and as has been pointed out several times in the text of this work, the literature now available on the adrenal gland of eutherian mammals is enormous, and indeed, a brief survey of current Journals indicates that it continues to grow constantly.en
dc.description.abstractThis work represents in the main, a general survey of the anatomical, histological and embryological constitution of the adrenal gland of Sheep, and while several new features have both been introduced and suggested, the general background and some of the current problems which are related to adrenal glands in general, have been slanted toward the gland in that animal for, whilst most of our information on the adrenal body has been obtained from the glands available in the literature indicate that, in the field of comparative endocrinology, much can be learned that is of significance when a specific gland such as that of Sheep, which to date has been pretty well neglected by observers, is studied in any great detail*en
dc.description.abstractThe all-embracing nature of this study, from the embryological development of the gland to its intimate structure in the adult animal, has necessitated each relevant Section being discussed and summarised separately.en
