The system that circulates blood through the body, consisting of the heart and blood vessels. In all vertebrates and certain invertebrates, the circulatory system is completely contained within a network of vessels (known as a closed circulatory system ). In arthropods and many other invertebrates, a substance analogous to blood (known as hemolymph) is pumped through vessels that open into the intercellular spaces (in what is known as an open circulatory system ). In vertebrates, the lymphatic system is also considered part of the circulatory system.
