Caption: Insect tracheae, light micrograph. The tracheae, which are part of the insects respiratory system, branches throughout the insect's body. It is reinforced with bands of chitin. The tracheae branch into smaller units (tracheoles) to reach the cells, allowing oxygen to diffuse in and carbon dioxide to diffuse out.
