definition
  • An epithelial tube or tree of tibes that transports blood away from the heart[modified from AEO definition].
editor note
  • Note that in FMA an artery is a tree, whereas AEO/JB defines it as a tube; FMA includes a separate class for what it calls the trunk. Classification in this ontology may currently (Jan 2012) represent a mix of both schemes, although we are gradually revising in the direction of the AEO scheme.
external definition
  • Part of the circulatory system composed of blood vessels which carry oxygenated blood away from the heart to the rest of the body.[AAO]
external ontology notes
  • Some arthropods have primitive arterial systems but this term refers to arteries in a true closed circulatory system.
