    evaporation, 15.5 mL of water from faeces, and 24.5 mL of water from urine. Both mammals gain the same amount of water from cellular respiration and food. 58 mL from the respiration, and 5.5 mL from food. A dry environment has limited sources of water and is hot. This would need an animal to be able to retain moisture to be able to survive (The Desert Adaptations of Birds & Mammals). Mammal 1 only gains 2 mL of water through drinking, whereas Mammal 2 has needed 55mL of drinking water. Therefore, according to the results, Mammal 1 would retain more water than Mammal 2 so consequently, would be the animal to have adapted to a dry environment. 2. Determine which mammal is best adapted to living in a dry environment. Explain how it maintains homeostasis and justify your answer, with reference to the data. pregnancy At day 0, the hypothalamus secretes the hormone GnRH to the pituitary, which then secretes FSH and LH to the ovary. FSH and LH start development of the follicle. After around 12 days the level of estrogen peaks. The high estrogen level has a positive feedback loop, which fuels the release of FSH and LH. The increase in LH causes the follicle to rupture, and the follicle cells that remain grow into the corpus luteum. When the follicle is mature, progesterone levels rise to stimulate the growth of the uterine lining in preparation for a fertilised egg. Progesterone has a negative feedback loop with the hypothalamus that inhibits GnRH, as well as FSH and LH. The…

  • Essay On Homeostasis

    Homeostasis is the human body maintaining a stable and constant internal environment independent from fluctuating external conditions. There are several variables that can affect our body’s homeostatic state, with any changes being considered a deviation. Depending upon the deviation, there are different processes to return the body back to normal and stable. The body is complex with multiple organ systems, but this essay will explain how the different parts of the nervous system and its…

  • Importance Of Homeostasis

    Primarily, it is important that the internal environment of the body is maintained, by the means of homeostasis. Therefore, the nervous system and hormones take responsibility in assisting with this process in order for all regulations to be controlled. For example, the blood sugar levels; Blood sugar levels needs to be adequately controlled to be able to provide the cells with a constant supply of energy. This process is controlled by the release and storage of glucose, which in return is…

  • The Importance Of Homeostasis

    What is homeostasis? Many may say it is a state of balance or sometimes a state of equilibrium. But those two things are not the only meaning of homeostasis, hence homeostasis can refer to the approach of an individual’s mortal parts including its capability of cultivating a stabile atmosphere which is fundamental to its continuance. For example, “temperature regulation and oxygen consumption” Schulkin (2002). Therefore, homeostasis is mandatory to human cells by reason of them being systematic…

    Promote interior conditions that could be required control for homeostasis. Those are water substance and body temperature. In the event that homeostasis does not kept up, the body can't be capacity legitimately and disease may guarantee. Homeostasis is the procedure in that the body's inside surroundings is hold consistent in light of any outside environment changes. This includes keeping up consistent quality in different body frameworks. Temperature direction is a vital substantial capacity…

  • Homeostasis: The Integumentary System

    The human body must maintain homeostasis for it to work properly. The integumentary and skeletal systems are two of the bodies systems that must work together to maintain homeostasis. When the body cannot maintain homeostasis, many different problems can occur. Osteoporosis is one such problem that can occur when homeostasis is no longer maintained. The integumentary system is one of the most active parts of our body. This system includes the skin, the hair and nails, the sebaceous glands, and…

  • Summary Of Homeostasis

    The purpose of homeostasis is to maintain a state of dynamic equilibrium within the body. Animals need to maintain a constant internal environment despite fluctuations in the internal and external environment. We need homeostasis as it keeps the bodys environment under control and keeps the conditions right for cells to live and function at optimal levels which ensures the survival and reproduction of the animals. Without the right conditions for the cells some would not be able to function…
