Support Systems {Help Please}

Post by matt_t_100 » Sat Aug 05, 2006 6:03 am

I would like some help on a project I have to do on support systems.

here's the question - Multicelluar organisms that live on land require support systems to overcome the force of gravity. In humans the obvious support system is provided by the skeletal system.

Compare the structure and functioning of support systems in land animals and plants.


What exactly should I write about animal support systems. Do I just write about the animal skeletal system or about all the systems like respiratory, circulatory that support the animal in living?

Could you please help me out and tell me what topics I should write on. Thankyou

I know this my first post but this is urgent and itould be greatley appreciated if someone could help me out.

Im using this link for my vertebrate anatomy class:

http://www.biology.eku.edu/RITCHISO/342notes2.htm

It discusses skeletal features of vertebrate animals. Hope this would help you a bit.

The prompt only seems to suggest gravity, you should ask your teacher to be sure.
