Describe the structure of the Malpighian body.

Asked by Topperlearning User 22nd July 2014, 12:50 PM
Answered by Expert

The Malpighian body constitutes the glomerulus and Bowman’s capsule.

The glomerulus is a tuft of blood capillaries.

The afferent arteriole enters the glomerulus, while the efferent arteriole leaves the glomerulus.

The Bowman’s capsule is a cup-shaped structure.

The glomerulus is situated in the cup-shaped depression of the Bowman’s capsule.
