Homeostasis (biology)

Homeostasis is a term used to describe the ability of a physiological system to maintain internal stability, because of the coordinated responses of its constituent parts to stimuli that tend to disturb normal conditions.

  • Homeostasis is any self-regulating process by which an organism tends to maintain stability while adjusting to conditions that are best for its survival.
  • The “stability” that the organism reaches is rarely around an exact point (such as the idealized human body temperature of 37 °C [98.6 °F])
