Comparison of Primary Organismal Axes

Human anatomical planes

K12 - this cartoon shows how different animals have different terms used to describe their body plan axes.


Designated in a diversity of species and their representation in Biological Spatial Ontology (BSPO). In fishes (A) and in humans (B), ‘anterior-posterior axis’ (narrow synonym ‘rostral-caudal axis’ in humans) is shown in red, ‘dorsal-ventral axis’ (narrow synonym ‘anterior-posterior axis’ in humans) shown in blue, and ‘left-right axis’ shown in yellow. A cnidarian (sea anemone) (C) is bilaterally symmetrical and has an ‘oral-aboral axis’, shown in orange.


Axes Formation: left-right axis | dorso-ventral axis | rostro-caudal axis | limb axis | Coronal | Sagittal | Transverse
