out passively Cheap in terms of transport and metabolism Dr Phelps BSC 2010 Notes Created by Cue Exam 1 Notes Page 26 of 33 2 Mammals amphibians sharks and some bony fishes combine the waste products 002 and NH3 to make urea Much less toxic than ammonia Low concentrations in environs can transport passively Size and polarity keep it from passing through cell membranes without transport Requires some metabolic investment to produce 3 Birds insects and many reptiles produce uric acid insoluble in water despite the carbonyl groups Can be sequestered and secreted with very little loss of water Most ef cient in terms ofwater retention but expensive metabolically Osmoregulation Osmolarity is the concentration of solutes in water An animal must decide whether to regulate Osmoregulators its osmolarity or conform osmoconformers to environmental variation Osmoconformers typically live in osmotically predictable environments Eg Deep depths in the ocean Osmoregulators face differing demands depending on their environments Eg Fish living closer to the surface Excretory systems Tubules are small tubes that are in close contact with transport epithelium and the blood supply Blood is ltered by transport epithelium Filtrate is collected Valuable molecules reabsorbed by trans epith Additional waste products may be secreted into excretory tubule The remaining concentrated fluid is excreted

feedback mechanisms Heterotrophs VS Autotrophs 0 Plants are autotrophs they make their own food 0 Autotrophs can synthesize any macromolecule they need from basic organic building blocks 0 Animals are heterotrophs they get their food from other organisms o Heterotrophs take shortcuts by stealing key nutrients from other organisms Heterotrophs reguire specific foods 0 The nutritional needs of an animal vary with its life histom Life history describes what the animal does For ex Life history of a human is that they are omnivores o Nutrients that can t be synthesized by an animal are referred to as essential Essential nutrients includes certain Amino acids All are available from animal sources I Plants are less reliable sources A A diverse vegetarian diet balances the shortcomings of any
