A Identified the path of blood through the body and showed that contractions of the heart powered this movement.
B Postulated that living organisms preserve a distinct internal environment despite changes in the external environment - homeostasis.

Question 2
2 Modern Animal Physiologists

Using the pull-down menus, match each item in the left column to the corresponding item in the right column.
A Discovered central pattern generators. These groups of neurons coordinate many rhythmic behaviors, including breathing and walking.
B Founded the field ecological physiology, which is the study of how an organism interacts with its environment.
C Studied how animals live in harsh and unusual environments. For example, he demonstrated that camels have specialized respiratory systems to prevent water loss during respiration.
D One of the first and most influential comparative physiologists. His studies include mechanisms involved in diving vertebrates, the responses of warm-blooded animals to cold environments, and how fish fill their swim bladders.
E Founded the field of adaptational biochemistry, which applies the concepts and techniques of biochemistry to comparative physiology.
