What is Homeostasis?

The protection of the internal environment of an organism from the harms of alternations in the external environment is termed as homeostasis.
The maintenance/regulation of internal/interior conditions in a cell or organisms by means of a self-regulation mechanism is known as homeostasis.
A state of equilibrium/calmness in which the internal/inner environment of the body of an animal remains relatively constant with respect to the external environment is known as homeostasis.




What is Homeostasis


What is Osmoregulation?

The mechanism/process of regulation or maintenance/regulation of solute and the gain and loss of water between the organism and its environment is known as osmoregulation. 
The maintenance of proper internal salt and water H2O concentration in a cell or in the body of the living organism is known as osmoregulation.
The active regulation of internal/inner osmotic pressure/coercion in a cell or in the body of a living organism i.e. human beings is known as osmoregulation.

What is Excretion?

The zealous mechanism which eliminates nitrogenous wastes is referred to as excretion.

What is Thermoregulation?

Maintainance of internal temperature within a tolerable range is designated as thermoregulation.

What is Control system?

The system among the intercellular and intracellular internal environment of an organism that keeps fluctuation in a narrow range in the intracellular environment as mired to the external environment is known as the control system.
