Ecosystem and body systems
A Coggle Diagram about Body Systems (The frontal lobe is the front most region of the cerebral cortex right under the forehead and is involved in movement, decision-making, problem solving and planning. The frontal lobe can be divided into the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for personality expression and the planning of complex cognitive behaviours; and the premotor and motor areas, which control the execution of voluntary muscle movement, the circulatry system is the system that circulates blood and lymph through the body, consisting of the heart, blood vessels, blood, lymph, and the lymphatic vessels and glands, The immune system is a host defense system comprising many biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against disease., The digestive system is a group of organs working together to convert food into energy and basic nutrients to feed the entire body. Food passes through a long tube inside the body known as the alimentary canal or the gastrointestinal tract, The muscular system is an organ system consisting of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles. It permits movement of the body, maintains posture, and circulates blood throughout the body., The respiratory system brings air into the body and removes carbon dioxide. It includes the nose, trachea, and lungs. When you breathe in, air enters your nose or mouth and goes down a long tube called the trachea. The trachea branches into two bronchial tubes, or primary bronchi, which go to the lungs. The primary bronchi branch off into even smaller bronchial tubes, or bronchioles. The bronchioles end in the alveoli, or air sacs. Oxygen follows this path and passes through the walls of the air sacs and blood vessels and enters the blood stream. At the same time, carbon dioxide passes into the lungs and is exhaled., The temporal lobes, located on the side of the head above the ears, play an important role in organizing and combining what we see and hear, language and speech production, as well as memory association and formation. Structures of the limbic system, including the olfactory cortex, amygdala and the hippocampus are located within the temporal lobes.
, the nervous system is a network of nerve cells and fibers which transmits nerve impulses between parts of the body., The parietal lobe, located near the back and top of the head, is part of the cerebral cortex. It is involved in the reception and processing of sensory information from the body. It controls goal directed voluntary movements, manipulation of objects and the integration of different senses that allows for understanding a single concept., Positioned at the rear of the cerebral cortex, the occipital lobes are the main centres for visual processing, such as the interpretation of colour, shape and distance., The brain stem connects the cerebrum with the spinal cord and consists of the midbrain, medulla oblongata, and the pons. It coordinates and relays motor control signals sent between the brain and the body and controls life supporting functions of the nervous system., Located at the base of the skull, the cerebellum (in Latin, meaning 'little brain') controls motor movement, coordination, balance, equilibrium and muscle tone. It relays information between body muscles and areas of the cerebral cortex involved in motor control. , The neurotransmitters are the things that transmits the information to the brain from the axon terminals and then the brain transmits it to the body and Serotonin is active when it comes to constructing smooth muscles.), Ecosystem,
Describes the living parts of an ecosystem.,
Alga, algae (plural)
A single or multicellular organism that has no roots, stems or leaves and is often found in water. ,
Any substance that causes your immune system to produce antibodies against it. An antigen may be a foreign substance from the environment, such as chemicals, bacteria, viruses or pollen.
Adrenal glands are
Two small glands, one located near the upper part of each kidney, that function in the endocrine system. The glands secrete the hormone adrenaline as well as other important hormones., Terrestrial ecosystems are land-based, while aquatic are water-based. The major types of ecosystems are forests, grasslands, deserts, tundra, freshwater and marine. The word “biome” may also be used to describe terrestrial ecosystems which extend across a large geographic area, such as tundra., Antennae
A pair of long, thin sensory appendages on the heads of insects, crustaceans and some other arthropods., Ecosystem
An ecosystem is a community of living organisms in conjunction with the nonliving components of their environment (things like air, water and mineral soil), interacting as a system. These biotic and abiotic components are regarded as linked together through nutrient cycles and energy flows,
Any biological species that defines a trait or characteristic of the environment (e.g. a species may indicate an environmental condition such as pollution). Indicator species can be among the most sensitive species in a region, and sometimes act as an early warning to monitoring biologists.
Control of a pest by the introduction of a natural enemy or predator.,
Region characterized by a severe lack of available water, to the extent of hindering or preventing the growth and development of plant and animal life.
An invertebrate animal of the large phylum Arthropoda, such as an insect, spider, or crustacean. They are characterised by jointed limbs, segmented body and an exoskeleton made of the chemical chitin.
Microscopic single-celled organism that has no nucleus or membrane-bound organelles.
Balance point (of a system)
Point in which a system is said to be in balance or at a steady state
A protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Each type of antibody is unique and defends the body against one specific type of antigen.
