Physiological Anatomy of the Lungs

                                =tioned, namely the under and the interlobular surfaces 
of the leaflets are allied rather to the Pulmonary 
<s>artery<\s> veins than to the pulmonary artery, since 
the colour which they exhibit, when the pulmonary 
artery and pulmonary veins are injected with 
fluids of different colours will more nearly corres=
=pond with that sent into the <s>former<\s> latter than with 
that sent into the former - It has already been 
remarked that the reverse of this occurs with respect 
to the upper surface, since the capillaries belonging 
to the pulmonary artery preponderate in that 
situation. 
A strong resemblance to an ordinary vegetable 
leaf 
is to be traced not only in the lungs themselves 
taken in the aggregate but likewise in every ulti=
=mate leaflet into which the pulmonary structure 
is subdivided, as well as in every intermediate 
lobule or group of lobules: the upper convex surface of each 
part resembles the upper or smooth surface of the 
leaf, and the interlobular and under surfaces cor=
=respond with that portion of the leaf, on which 
the venation appears. 
The Bronchial tubes and pulmonary artery enter 
the structure of the different parts of the lung,
