Concept Info

NAME

Physiology

DESCRIPTION

Physiology is the branch of the biological sciences that deals with the life-supporting functions and processes of living organisms or their parts. The study of physiology aims to understand how living things work, which can then aid the treatment of diseases.

217 skos:definition Respiration is the physiological process through which oxygen in the environment can be exchanged with carbon dioxide from an organism. This process requires specialized organs such as the lungs or gills. This oxygen is used for cellular respiration and metabolism, a byproduct of which is carbon dioxide.
