(A) Human volunteer 2, (B) chimpanzee Popo, and (C) macaque Mff765. The streamlines (upper) and the contours (bottom) indicate the airflow direction and velocity distributions through the nasal passage, respectively. The number of streamlines reflects the relative airflow volume for a given subject.
