Homework Help: science mechanism

Posted by jamie lynn h. on Friday, November 10, 2006 at 11:43pm.

By which mechanism does lymph flow through lymphatic vessels.



would it be active transport, lymphatic pump, contraction of muscles, or pressure from adjacent blood vessels. I am leaning towards the latter.

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "lymph movement" to get these possible sources:

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
