To understand the physiology of the nose, its functions must be understood.
Nasal physiology also is affected by anatomic deformities that may have a varying effect on congestion, drainage, and olfaction.
Although the exact role of NO in nasal physiology remains poorly understood, the functions are thought to be host defense, ciliary motility, and an improved ventilation-perfusion ratio in the lungs by auto-inhalation.

 Physiology
Given its integrative nature, evolutionary physiology has a leading role in the discussion about the nature of animal adaptation, and has influenced significantly recent research tendencies in comparative physiology.
It is frequent, for example, that studies in comparative physiology consider individual variation, a key issue in the neo-Darwinian concept of evolution by natural selection, as part of the unexplained variance.
However, to understand how physiology evolves, it is fundamental to understand the scope, origin, and implications of physiological variance, the relationship between this variance and animal ecology, and the role of different sources of variation at different levels of organization.
