Description/Abstract

Experimental and anatomical observations upon the Octopoda suggest that the branchial hearts are not the sole contributors to the increase in venous blood pressure between the anterior vena cava and the afferent branchial vessel.

The lateral venae cavae are proposed as an additional source of pressure generation, thus contributing to the octopod accessory branchial pump.
