Sample text

What are the four major tissue types? For two of them, describe the major subtypes. Describe the construction of organs from tissues. 4 Size and Scale among Organisms Because life on Earth ranges from unicellular prokaryotes to large multicellular eukaryotes such as whales, organisms range in mass (using the metric weights in grams) over a scale of 1020 (the number 10 followed by 20 zeroes)! The table inside the back cover gives examples of the size of some organisms to give you a sense of this enormous range.

It may also predict the results of an effector’s output before reaching the set point. The anticipator then activates the appropriate response in advance of the change or suppresses the effector before it overshoots the set point. For example, modern electronic thermostats have anticipator circuits that shut off the furnace just before the set point is actually reached, so that the hot air already on its way from the furnace to the thermostat brings the room to the set point without overshooting.

The thermostat setting provides the desired temperature level, or set point. The thermostat acts as an integrator: It compares the sensor’s input with the set point and, in this case, adjusts the heat output of the furnace to oppose the deviation from the set point. When cold is being compensated for, the heat produced by the furnace counteracts or is “negative” to the original fall in the temperature. Note that this is still termed “negative” feedback even though heat is being added. Once the room temperature reaches the set point, the activating mechanism in the thermostat and consequently the effector is switched off.
