What are Human Endocrine Glands?

Endocrine glands

  • Endocrine glands in animals possess a versatile communication system to coordinate biological functions. 
  • Exocrine glands and endocrine glands are two kinds of glands found in animals. Endocrine glands are found in different regions of the body of animals as well as human beings. 
  • These glands are called ductless glands. 
  • Their secretions are called hormones which are produced in minute quantities. 
  • The secretions diffuse into the bloodstream and are carried to distant parts of the body. 
  • They act on specific organs which are referred as target organs.
  • Exocrine glands have specific ducts to carry their secretions e.g. salivary glands, mammary glands, and sweat glands.
