Characteristics of Living Organisms
3. Growth and Dev
Provides support and protection; site of hemopoesis, stores calcium and phosphorus, provides sites for attachments.
Provides body mvmt; generates heat when muscles contract
Provides protection, regulates body temp, site of cutanenous receptos, synthesizes vitamin D, and prevents water loss
A reg. system that controls body movement, responds to sensory stimuli, and helps control all other systems in the body. Also responsible for conciousness, intelligence, and memory
Consists of glands and cell clusters that secrete hormones, some of which regulate body and cellular growth, chemical levels in the body, and reproductive function.
Consist of the heart (pump), blood, and blood vessels. the heart moves blood thru blood vessels in order to distribute hormones, nutrients, and gases, and pick up waste products.
Transports and filters lymphs (interstital fluids transported thru lymph vessels) and initiates an immune response when necessary
Responsible for exchange of gases btwen blood and the air in lungs
Mechanically and chemically digest food materials, absorbs nutrients, and expels wate products
Male Reproductive System
Produces male sex cells (sperm), male hormones, and transfers the sperm to the female.
Female Reproductive System
produces female sex cells (oocytes) and female hormones i.e. estrogen and progesterone. Receives the sperms from males
Filters the blood and Removes waste products from the blood. Concentrates waste products in the form of urine and expels urine from the body.
