What are the other systems of the body that have excretory function?
The Excretory system is responsible for the elimination of wastes produced by homeostasis. There are several parts of the body that are involved in this process, such as sweat glands, the liver, the lungs and the kidney system. Every human has two kidneys.
Do you find any relationship between circulatory system and excretory system?
The circulatory system collects the waste product from the different parts of the body and carries it to the excretory organs. It is closely related to circulatory system by the virtue of removal of wastes from the body although maintaining osmoregulation of the process.
What is the difference between natural kidney and artificial kidney?
The natural kidney continuously receives the blood and water, filter them and keep the body away from toxic wastes by the process of excretion. The artificial kidney is the device used in kidney damage persons only from time to time, under supervision of a specialist doctor.
Which of the following is not a part of excretory system?
The intestine is not an organ that excretes, but a digestive organ.
Which of the following is not part of excretory system?
What are the components of the excretory system?
Excretory systems regulate the chemical composition of body fluids by removing metabolic wastes and retaining the proper amounts of water, salts, and nutrients. Components of this system in vertebrates include the kidneys, liver, lungs, and skin. Not all animals use the same routes or excrete their wastes the same way humans do.
What kind of system is the planaria excretory system?
As multi-cellular systems evolved to have organ systems that divided the metabolic needs of the body, individual organs evolved to perform the excretory function. Planaria are flatworms that live in fresh water. Their excretory system consists of two tubules connected to a highly branched duct system.
Which is the simplest system for excreting wastes?
Many systems have evolved for excreting wastes that are simpler than the kidney and urinary systems of vertebrate animals. The simplest system is that of contractile vacuoles present in microorganisms. Flame cells and nephridia in worms perform excretory functions and maintain osmotic balance.
Which is the excretory organ of an invertebrate?
Invertebrate Excretory Organs | Back to Top. Many invertebrates such as flatworms use a nephridium as their excretory organ. At the end of each blind tubule of the nephridium is a ciliated flame cell. As fluid passes down the tubule, solutes are reabsorbed and returned to the body fluids. Excretory system of a flatworm.
