- Organisms have strict limits on the internal conditions that they can tolerate.
- Systems that maintain homeostasis rely on feedback mechanisms.
- Environmental factors can affect homeostasis.
By the end of this course, students will:
E1. evaluate the impact on the human body of selected chemical substances and of environmental factors related to human activity;
E2. investigate the feedback mechanisms that maintain homeostasis in living organisms;
E3. demonstrate an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of human body systems, and explain the mechanisms that enable the body to maintain homeostasis.
