Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In anatomy, the morphological features of organs are captured in a variety of ways, and this allows wide interpretations of the terminology for organs. However, the present terminology is considered to include terms that require re-evaluation for appropriate ranking of organs. Organs should be understood in a proper perspective of their anatomical hierarchy and architectural characteristics. I consider that organs should be classified morphologically by the terminology of "organelle" on the cytological level, "sub-organ" on the histological level, "organ" on the macroscopic anatomical level, and "organ system", which may also be expressed as "apparatus" or "organa", on the level of systematic anatomy. I strongly demand that N.A.V.-N.H. (1983) acknowledge this hierarchial order and adopt the general term "organum".
