Document Summary

Homeostasis the organism. : the coordinated physiological processes which maintain most of the constant states in. Temperature conformity = internal temperature on the y-axis and external temperature on the x-axis, and the the temperature on the inside of the animal is about the same as the temperature on the outside of the animal. Temperature regulation = a whole bunch of external temperature, but when you measure the internal temperature, it is about the same. None of these really occurs in the real world, but they are reasonable approximation. You can be a conformer and a regulator at the same time. If we take a fish (salmon) and it is a thermal conformer but if we measure the concentration of chloride ion in its blood, then it is very regulated. Some kind of different in equilibrium separates us from dead stuff. Mixed conformity and regulation zone of tolerance.
