Abstract

The histological structure of the liver in 12 European bison, 2–8 years old, was presented. The study of the hepatic lobule showed that in Bison bonasus there were no connective septa around the hepatic lobules. On the hepatic lobule territory, solitary bile ducts, respectively solitary arterioles, were sometimes observed. Every one of these vessels was isolated from the hepatic parenchyma by thick coats of collagen. In the adventitia of the hepatic sublobar vessels, capillaries of the vasa vasorum system were found. The thick capsule of Glisson presented an outer part lacking in blood vessels and an inner part vascularised with arterioles and capillaries originating from the subcapsular portal tracts. The ligament insertion in the liver parenchyma was described.
