About This Chapter
TExES Life Science: Homeostasis of Organisms - Chapter Summary
Utilize the informative video lessons in this chapter to review the necessity of homeostasis and to explore the significance of internal regulation and feedback mechanisms. You may further prepare for the TExES Life Science examination by expanding your knowledge of the processes of endocytosis and exocytosis. Watch the video lessons for assistance with:
- Understanding molecular transport as well as the reproduction of organisms
- Describing positive and negative feedback mechanisms
- Discussing the significance of physical exercise and nutrition for humans and living organisms
- Explaining the effects of viruses on homeostasis
Watch and study the information in these video lessons as you prepare to showcase your knowledge of homeostasis on the TExES Life Science examination. Your submitted questions on the subject matter will be answered by knowledgeable science professionals. You may use the video tags to locate information and also refer to the included written transcripts. Take the lesson quizzes and the practice chapter examination to test your comprehension of the material.
1. Growth, Reproduction & Dynamic Homeostasis in Organisms
What makes something a living thing? In this lesson, you will refresh your knowledge of three important features of living things -- growth, reproduction, and homeostasis.
2. Effects of Nutrition, Exercise & Environment on Health
In this lesson you will learn about how nutrition, exercise, and environment affect your health. A quiz following the lesson will test what you have learned.
3. The Impact of Viruses & Microorganisms on Homeostasis
Viruses and bacteria are so tiny that you can't even see them without a microscope. Even though they are extremely small, both can have a huge impact on how good or how bad you feel. Keep reading to find out more about how a bacteria can make the difference between having a bellyache or not!
