Exocrine glands empty via a duct to a specific location. The other type of gland is an ENDOCRINE GLAND that empties directly into the bloodstream.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
