Abstract

The trachea, bronchi, and bronchioles constitute the branched conduit for transport of gases to and from the lung parenchyma. The airways regulate the flow and condition the inhaled air. To accomplish these tasks, mammalian airways have acquired a number of adaptive mechanisms and functions, which are reflected in their structure.
