Caption: Marmot digestive system. 18th-century journal page illustrating various organs and aspects of the digestive system of a marmot (Mus alpinus). At centre right is the stomach. At lower left is the ileum and colon and caecum. An opening in the colon is at lower right, and a later stage of the alimentary canal is at upper left. This page is from volume 7 of the 1734 edition of 'The Philosophical Transactions', an abridged collection of papers from the Royal Society. The original paper was published in Latin in 1726 by the Swiss physician and naturalist Johann Jakob Scheuchzer (1672-1733) in volume 34 of 'Philosophical Transactions'.
