Interaction and coordination

  1. 1. INTERACTION AND COORDINATIO NAutora: Marta García T.
  2. 2. What do you remember? 1. What senses does a predatory animal use when it hunts? 2. What body part does the chameleon use to catch its prey? 3.What type of living being moves more quickly: a plant or an animal? 4. Which of the following are involved in interaction? heart – roots – runners – brain - kidneys - bones Autora: Marta García T.
  3. 3. What is interaction?Interaction enables living beings to receive andrespond to a stimulus. It involves differentelements:1. Stimuli.2. Receptors.3. Coordination Systems.4. Effectors. Autora: Marta García T.
  4. 4.  Stimuli → Detectable changes in the internal or external environment, which provoke responses. Stimuli can be Physical, Chemical or Biotic. Receptors → Sensory structures which detect external and internal stimuli.  In Animals, receptors are the sense organs.  In Plants, repectors are found in cells. Coordination Systems → Organs which process information received by the receptors and produce a response. Effectors → Structures which produce responses, such as muscles and glands in animals. Autora: Marta García T.
  5. 5. How do receptors work? SENSE SENSE ORGAN WHAT STIMULI DO THEY DETECT? HOW DO THEY WORK? They detect light. SIGHT EyesSMELL Vertebrates: nose They detect chemical substances Arthropods: appendage dissolved in air or water. TASTE Tongue It detects chemical substances dissolved in water.HEARING Ears They detect sound, from very loud noises to soft musical notes.TOUCH Fish: lateral line They detect pressure, touch, pain and Arthropods: appendage temperature changes Most animals: skin Autora: Marta García T.
  6. 6. Autora: Marta García T.
  7. 7. Coordination System: The Nervous System The nervous system receives information, interprets it, and transmits a response to the effectors. It is different for invertebrates and vertebrates. Autora: Marta García T.
  8. 8.  In vertebrates, the nervous system includes:  The Central Nervous System (CNS ) → The Brain and the Spinal Cord.  The Peripheral Nervous System (PNS )→ Nerves originated in the brain and in the spinal cord. Nerves can be:  Sensory: go from the receptors to the CNS, carrying information.  Motor: go from the CNS to the effectors, carrying a response. Autora: Marta García T.
  9. 9. Autora: Marta García T.
  10. 10.  Invertebrates have simpler nervous systems, for example:  Ganglia system (nerve cells are joined by the nerve cord).  Nerve Net system (nerve cells form a nerve net extending throughout the animal). Autora: Marta García T.
  11. 11. EffectorsThey are organs which produce a response.There are two types of responses to stimuli:  MOTOR RESPONSES →The response is movement. They are controlled by the motor system  ENDOCRINE RESPONSES → The response is the release of hormones into the blood. Hormones control and coordinate activities throughout the body. They are controlled by glands. Autora: Marta García T.
  12. 12. Autora: Marta García T.
  13. 13. Coordination In Plants Plants do not have a nervous or an endocrine system. Responses to stimuli in plants are coordinated by HORMONES , which act as chemical messengers to respond to factors such as light, gravity, water and temperature. Cells inside the organism detect stimuli Autora: Marta García T.
  14. 14.  There are two types of responses to external stimuli: 1) Tropism → Permanent responses which produce changes in the direction of the plant’s growth. Types:  Geotropism: The response is caused by gravity.  Phototropism: The response is caused by light. Autora: Marta García T.
  15. 15.  Hydrotropism: The response is caused by water. Thigmotropism: The response is caused by contact. Autora: Marta García T.
  16. 16. 2) Nastic Movements: are temporary responses of particular parts of a plant to external stimuli. Autora: Marta García T.
