What is the definition of homestasis?
Systems are formed by groups of organs that work together to perform specific functions. There are number of body systems - eg: Integumentry (skin,hair,nails) - Cardiovascular (heart, blood vessels) - Respiratory (nose, pharynx,larynx,trachea,bronchi,lungs,bronchioles,alveoli) - Urinary (kidneys,ureters,bladder,urethra) - and Digestive (mouth,esophagus,stomach,duodenum,small intestine,large intestine,liver,spleen,gallbladder,pancreas,rectum,anus). None of these body systems are capable of functioning alone. All are dependant on each other and work together as one unit to maintain the body in a healthy and well-balanced condition. The term for this state of balance is homestasis.
Asked in Genetics
Describe a cellular process that maintains homeostasis within a cell?
The cellular process that maintains homestasis is the plasma membrane or cell membrane. It is the barrier between the cell and its environment and allows steady amount of nutrients to come into the cell no matter what external conditions are.

Asked in Animal Life
What does homestasis do?
Homeostasis refers to the state of balance that is achieved within a cell or an organism. It is a state achieved through various internal processes. This type of internal homeostatic regulation is important to an organism to survive in a wide variety of environmental conditions. Homeostasis is the process of your body maintaining a stable state while the external environment changes.
