A tube, or duct, for the passage of ova from the ovary to the exterior of the animal or to the part where further development takes place. In mammals the oviducts are also called Fallopian tubes.
tube from the female ovary that ends near the base of the third walking leg; carries eggs from their production site to the exterior of the body
An often complex female organ connecting the ovaries to the oopores. In the Asellota, it consists of the following functional subsections: outer tissues surrounding internal parts; spermatheca, which may or may not be covered with cuticle; and cuticular organ, an often complex cuticular tube.
A portion of the female bird's reproductive tract. The oviduct is a tube. The egg is fertilized in the upper part of the oviduct before albumen, membranes, shell and cuticle are added as the egg descends the tube.
The tube down which the yolk passes. In the upper parts albumen is secreted onto the yolk, and in the lower parts, the membranes and shell are added. It opens into the vent.
ovum = egg + ductus = a path; salpinx; uterine tube; cf. Fallopius.
ovum: egg + ducere: to lead] • In mammals, the tube serving to transport eggs to the uterus or to outside of the body.
In female birds and reptiles, the passageway between uterus and cloaca, colloquially called a â€œbirth canal.â€ Paired in some crocodilians.
Long tube in hen's body through which the yolk is moved and in which the albumen, shell membranes and shell are formed.
The portion of the female reproductive system between the ovary and the uterus.
a tube that transports eggs from the ovaries toward the cloaca
tube that carries eggs from the ovary to the cloacal opening
either of a pair of tubes conducting the egg from the ovary to the uterus
another word for egg tube
the female duct through which eggs past from the common duct to the atrium
The tract within a female bird through which the ovum or egg passes.
A tube passing from the ovary to the vagina in invertebrates or to the uterus in vertebrates.
Also called the fallopian tubes, it is one of a pair of ducts that lead from the peritoneal cavity over the ovary to the uterus. The tubes serve to lead the ovum to the uterus and the spermatozoa to the ovaries. The oviducts are located in the lower abdomen by a broad ligament called the mesosalpinx.
The organ of the female birds that puts the albumen, shell membranes, and the shell of the avian egg around the yolk.
The female bird organ that puts the albumen, shell membranes, and shell around the yolk.
tube that carries eggs from ovary to exterior. oviducal
The organ in the hen which accepts the yolk after ovulation, where the egg is completed.
A small duct that extends from the ovary to the uterine horn and is the normal site of fertilization. See illustration, page 43.
Section of female reproductive system leading from dorsal ovary around right or left side of intestine to gonopore.
the tube which carries eggs from the ovary.
The tube inside a hen through which an egg travels when it is ready to be laid. P - Q
A short, usually tubular, thick-walled part of the female reproductive system between the ovary and spermatheca. ( 14)
The proximal arm of the reproductive tract, or a portion of the proximal arm. This term has two conflicting usages. Some authors ( Nicholas, 1975) use the term to encompass both the gonadal sheath, the spermatheca, and the uterus, those portions of the gonad which contain maturing oocytes and fertilized eggs, and deriving from the somatic gonad lineages. Other authors (for instance Kemphues and Strome, 1997) use the term to refer specifically to the more distal portions where immature oocytes are generated, thus referring only to the somatic sheath portion. This term probably never refers to the unsheathed portion of the distal arm.
In oviparous animals (those that lay eggs), the passage from the ovaries to the outside of the body is known as the oviduct. The eggs travel along the oviduct.
