An Introduction to Animal Structure and Function The cells of most animals interact at three levels of organization: tissues, organs, and organ systems Outline: 1. Key concepts 2. Organization of the animal body 3. Tissue types 4. Organ systems 5. Bioenergetics of Animals 6. Homeostasis 7. Key Terms 8. Conclusions Key Concepts: 1. The cells of most animals interact at three levels of organization: tissues, organs, and organ systems 2. Four types of tissues are seen in most animals: epithelial, connective, muscle, and nervous tissues 3. Each animal cell engages in metabolic activities. 4. Animals are heterotrophs that harvest chemical energy from the food they ingest. 5. Mechanisms of homeostasis moderate changes in the internal environment Organization of the animal body 1. Cells – basic structural and functional units. 2. Tissue – a group of cells, usually similar in both structure and function. They are bound together to carry out one or more specialized tasks. 3. Organ – a body part. Two or more tissue types that function together. 4. Organ systems – two or more organs that work to perform a common function. Hierarchy of Organization Chemical Level -> Atoms -> molecules -> cellular level (made of molecules) -> tissue level (consists of similar types of cells) -> organ level (made of different types of tissues) -> organ system level (different organs that work together closely) -> organismal level (many organ systems) Tissue types 1. Epithelial tissue protective coverings of the body, linings of internal organs Cells close together act as a barrier 2. Connective tissue structural support of body parts, energy storage, etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
