Nose
2013-03-05 14:47:26

The nose is the organ that extends outward in the middle of the face between the eyes and mouth. Formation and Orientation The shape and look of the nose is dependent on the ethmoid bone and the nasal septum which is the cartilage that separates the two nostrils. The evolutionary hypotheses of nose development in humans propose that noses are alterations of the angles of the skull because of bipedalism. Because of the change in diet that has come with modern time and the change of...
