Whilst useful having separate articles for Human pharynx and a generic pharynx, this article is currently confusing. It states the pharynx is part of the conducting zone of the respiratory system which is made up of the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and terminal bronchioles; their function is to filter, warm, and moisten air and conduct it into the lungs.. However, many vertebrates have a pharynx but not lungs. The invertebrates depicted in the images in this article do not have lungs. Cmungall (talk) 06:45, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Cmungall Saw your post on WT:Anatomy. I hadn't seen this article, but no matter how you look at this it should really be reworked thoroughly. I will attempt this tomorrow. CFCF (talk) 23:47, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
