Exocrine glands Secrete products into ducts that lead to the external environment Secretions are not used for communication btwn body parts thus are not hormones Are NOT part of the endocrine system Endocrine glands Secrete products directly into the circulatory system without ducts Secretions ARE used for communication btwn body parts thus ARE hormones ARE part of the endocrine system Some organs contain endocrine cells or tissues. http://commonsensehealth.com/uploads/endocrineglands.gif Slide: 6 Endocrine Glands Figure 45.10 (Campbell 8 th ed)
