    how is the pituitary gland (which is part of the endocrine system) linked to the kidneys (which are part of the renal system)?

    they are not specifically linked physically, but the pituitary gland does send certain hormones in which it triggers certain functions of the kidney.

    e.g. Secretes ADH (antidiuretic hormone) to control the absorption of water into the kidneys
