Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

 The Endocrine System  1. Regulating metabolism and water and electrolyte balance  2. Adaptive changes to help the body cope with stress  3. Growth and development  4. Controlling reproduction  5. Regulating red blood cell production  6. Digestion and absorption  Complexity of Hormones  A single gland can release multiple hormones  A single hormone may be secreted by more than one gland  A single hormone can have more than one target  A hormone may be released at different rates over time  A single target cell may be influenced by more than one hormone  Complexity of Hormones (continued)  The same chemical messenger may be considered a hormone or a neurotransmitter depending on how it is released and where it acts  Some organs only release hormones  Classificati
