BIOLOGY LESSON NOTE FOR FIRST TERM SS3

Below are the Excerpts (Samples) of the 2023 Complete Biology Lesson Notes for SS3 First Term

WEEK 1: REGULATION OF INTERNAL ENVIRONMENT

CONTENT

  • Homeostasis, mechanism and structures of homeostasis
  • Structures of the Kidney
  • Functions of the Kidney
  • Kidney diseases, effects and remedy

HOMEOSTASIS

Homeostasis is the process by which a fairly constant internal environment is maintained in an organism.  The internal environment of an organism is made up of the body fluid such as blood, lymph and tissue fluid.  For efficient functions of body cells and healthy growth, a living organism must be able to adjust to any change in the physical and chemical conditions of its body fluids.  These conditions include temperature, PH, osmotic pressure, concentrations of dissolved substances and mineral ions.

MECHANISM OF HOMEOSTASIS

Homeostatic processes are control mechanisms which are used to detect and adjust to changes in the internal environment of the organism. These mechanisms usually include:

  1. Sensory detectors which recognize a change in a given condition and stimulate the relevant body parts.
  2. Effectors organs or glands which react and restore the normal state.

STRUCTURES FOR HOMEOSTASIS

Osmoregulation (homeostasis) in unicellular organism is ensured by the use of contractile vacuole. The main organs involved in homeostasis in multicellular organisms include; kidney, liver, skin, ductless glands (hormones) and the brain which has the overall control of the homeostatic process in the body.

EVALUATION

  1. What is homeostasis? List four factors of homeostasis.
  2. List four structures of homeostasis in multicellular animals

STRUCTURE OF THE KIDNEY

The mammalian kidney is a bean-shaped, reddish brown organ located in the posterior end of the abdomen.  The right kidney…
