Homeostasis, from the Greek words for "same" and "steady," refers to any process that living things use to actively maintain fairly stable conditions necessary for survival. The term was coined in 1930 by the physician Walter Cannon.
Homeostasis, as currently defined, is a self-regulating process by which biological systems maintain stability while adjusting to changing external conditions.
Examples include thermoregulation, blood glucose regulation, baroreflex in blood pressure, calcium homeostasis, potassium homeostasis, and osmoregulation.
Homeostasis refers to an organism's ability to regulate various physiological processes to keep internal states steady and balanced. These processes take place mostly without our conscious awareness.
Homeostasis is the ability of living systems to maintain a steady and uniform internal environment to allow the normal functioning of the systems. It is the tendency to achieve equilibrium against various natural and environmental factors.
Homeostasis is the regulation of a constant internal environment. The conditions are maintained to ensure optimum conditions for metabolism and changes in response to both internal and external fluctuations.
Homeostasis is the maintenance of a constant internal environment. Regulating body temperature, blood glucose level and water content are all examples of homeostasis. Combined Science.
split it as homeo+status... i.e if you take homeo medicine then your status will be stable or the body system will maintain relative stability.
It means maintaining a constant internal environment Wow.MoreIt means maintaining a constant internal environment Wow.
It maintains homeostasis, a stable equilibrium, of the skin and regulates body temperature. When our core temperature gets high enough through physical activity or high temperatures, sweating kicks off and cools you down while it evaporates. This can prevent dangerous conditions like overheating and heatstroke.
Other Examples of Homeostasis
Proper balance of the internal environment (homeostasis) of a fish is in a great part maintained by the excretory system, especially the kidney. The kidney, gills, and skin play an important role in maintaining a fish's internal environment and checking the effects of osmosis.
