How are the 11 organ systems connected to each other
A organ (from ancient Greekὄργανονórganon, German 'tool, sensory tool') is a specialized part of the body made up of different cells and tissues. An organ is a delimited functional unit in a multicellular living being. An organ is based on its own organ structure and goes through a specific organogenesis. The interaction of the organs realizes the organism. Organs are functionally connected directly to one another through organ systems. Organs are based on the biological differentiation (“division of tasks”) of the cells of real multicellular cells.
A uniform assignment of certain functions to organs is often problematic, since many organs in different multicellular living beings can take on different tasks that are distributed over several organs in other living beings. An example of this is the gill of fish, which serves both for breathing and for excretion of substances and thus partially replaces the function of a kidney.
Organs in humans
Data based on the following comparative values: age: 20–30 years, lifespan: 70 years, height: 170 cm, weight: 70 kg and a body area of 1.8 square meters. (The sensory organs and the genital organs were not taken into account here.)
|body part||Weight||proportion of|
|Muscles||30.0 kg||43,0 %|
|Boneless skeleton||7.0 kg||10,0 %|
|Skin and subcutaneous tissue||6.1 kg||8,7 %|
|Digestive tract||2.0 kg||2,9 %|
|liver||1.7 kg||2,4 %|
|red bone marrow||1.5 kg||2,1 %|
|brain||1.3 kg||1,8 %|
|both lungs||1.0 kg||1,4 %|
|heart||0.3 kg||0,43 %|
|both kidneys||0.3 kg||0,43 %|
|spleen||0.18 kg||0,26 %|
|thyroid||0.02 kg||0,03 %|
|total||70 kg||100 %|
Under the term Plant organs one understands the individual functional, but not purely morphologically classifiable parts of a plant. Essentially, these are the various types of shoots, leaves and roots and their individual parts, as well as metamorphoses of the same.
Analogous to the functions of animal organs, the plant organs serve the main tasks
