Example text

Cengage Learning, 2013 which body cells are in direct contact. This internal environment is outside the cells but inside bodies. It consists of the extracellular (extra means “outside of”) fluid, or ECF, which in vertebrates is made up of plasma, the fluid portion of the blood, and interstitial fluid, which surrounds and bathes the cells (Figure 1-5). Various epithelial layers accomplish exchanges between the external environment and the internal environment. For example, a digestive system transfers the nutrients required by all body cells from the external environment into the ECF (such as blood, which is part of the internal body environment).

Let’s now examine this crucial concept in detail. Body cells are in contact with a privately maintained internal environment instead of with the external environment that surrounds organisms If each cell has basic survival skills, why must cells perform specialized tasks and be organized according to specialization into systems dedicated to the whole body’s survival? The vast majority of cells are not in direct contact with the external environment and cannot function without contributions from the other cells.
