The interstitial fluid forms the internal environment of an organism. The cells obtain the substance required for biochemical reactions from the interstitial fluid.Regulating the internal environment The internal environment of multicellular organism 1. . 4. Intercellular space between cells is filled with a fluid called the interstitial fluid. 3. 2. The internal environment is the environment within the body of an organism.

1. . The physical and chemical factors of the internal environment must be maintained regardless of the conditions outside of the cell in order for cell to function optimally Physical factors : a) Temperature b) Blood pressure c) osmotic pressure 1.The necessity for maintaining an optimal internal environment. Chemical factors: a) Salt b) Sugar content c) pH value 2.

 These changes are regulated by the homeostatic mechanisms which maintain the internal environment so that the metabolic process can proceed at optimum rates. temperature and osmotic pressure.  Eg. metabolism of the body is affected by the changes in the chemical factors and physical factors. .Homeostatis  The maintenance of a relatively constant internal environment for the cells to function optimally.  Glucose and oxygen.

 The mechanism that govern homeostasis is called the negative feedback mechanism. Any increase or decrease will trigger the homeostasis mechanism to raise it back to normal. .

 The involvement of various system in maintaining an optimal internal environment Receptor Factor value increase Control centre Negative feedback mechanism Effector Normal condition Factor value increase Negative feedback mechanism Normal condition Receptor Control centre Effector .

muscular system.  When the temperature rises above the normal level. circulatory system.  This information is transmitted to hypothalamus at the centre in the brain. nervous system. The blood vessels dilate and allow more blood to flow near the surface of the body . body temperature  Is regulated by the integumentary system. the receptors in the skin detect the changes.  The hypothalamus activated blood vessels and sweat glands. Example. and endocrine system.

.  The sweat glands are activated by the nervous system to produce more sweat that will lower the body temperature through evaporation. This will increase heat loss to the external environment.
