Define "Species"
A species is a group of organims that can breed with each other to produce fertile offspring.
3 of 10
Define "Gene"
A gene is a short piece of DNA at a particular point on a chromosome a gene codes for a characteristic.

Thermoregulation
Theremoregulation keeps our core body temperature at 37 degrees. This is important because enzymes in the main organs are most active at this temperature.
5 of 10
Osmoregulation
Osmoregulation controls how much water is lost in urine, and so controls the amount of water in the body.
