Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

The ability of body systems to increase their function, given the need to adapt, is known as the physiologic reserve.

Explanation:

The ability of body systems to increase their function if the need to adapt arises is known as a physiological reserve. Frequently, this term is used to refer to the operating limits of a particular physiological system when under stress. When this stress exceeds the ability of a particular organ or system to compensate for it, organ failure occurs. Adaptation achieves its highest efficiency when changes are generated gradually/progressively rather than abruptly. In aging, this reserve is diminished and therefore the ability of the organs to adapt to stress is lower, that is, the ability to adapt is reduced in extreme ages.

Explain the process of energy moving through the atmosphere.

Answers

Energy travels between the Earth's surface and the atmosphere in a variety of ways, including radiation, conduction, and convection. Conduction is one of the three main ways in which thermal energy is transferred from place to place.

What is the cause of the movement of energy in the atmosphere?

The transfer of thermal energy due to the transfer of matter from one place to another is called convection. Convection occurs in the atmosphere when conduction heats the air near the surface of the earth.

In the atmosphere, greenhouse gas molecules absorb this heat energy and raise the temperature. After this absorption, the gas radiates thermal energy in all directions. Then this thermal energy is radiated into space

what is indicated by a similarity in the pattern of embryological development exibited by two diffrenr organisms

Answers

When two different organisms exhibit a similarity in the pattern of embryological development, it is an indication that the two organisms have descended from a common ancestor. Similarity in embryological development is accepted by biologists as further evidence of common ancestry to back up evidence obtained from fossil finds.
