separate immune and lymphatic sections?[edit]

While they are connected in many ways, they are separate systems so perhaps they should be separated? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jacknunn (talkcontribs) 05:04, 2 November 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Other mammals[edit]

I was hoping to find information about how the appendix functions in other mammals. How widespread is its occurrence? Does it occur outside Mammalia? Scott Tillinghast, Houston TX (talk) 19:06, 1 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Widely held" view that the appendix is vestigial[edit]

Could someone in the know please specify whether "widely held" (used twice in this article) refers to scientists, or people in general? As a member of the general public I've always assumed this is a fact, and am surprised to find doubt cast on it here. And since the question of vestigiality impinges on the argument of evolution versus "intelligent design", I feel the article should make clear whether this is a still commonly held scientific view, or a notion that has become established among the (uninformed?) lay public, or both.

Who are "scientists"? (talk) 15:59, 27 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]


What's going on with the 'history' section of this article? It seems to be just a continuation of the section on 'function'? Furius (talk) 19:10, 19 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
