Com crete sweat, which evaporates, cooling the skin and its underlying blood supply. The cooled blood circulates internally and keeps your body temperature from rising above 37°C. People also compensate behaviorally by dressing warmly on a cold winter day or jumping into a swimming pool in the heat of summer. Keeping your internal temperature within a narrow range is one example of homeostasis—a steady internal condition maintained by responses that compensate for changes in the external environment.

Their cells live in tightly coordinated groups and are so interdependent that they cannot survive on their own. For example, human cells cannot live by themselves in nature because they must be bathed in body fluids and supported by the activities of other cells. Like individual cells, multicellular organisms have emergent properties that their individual components lack; for example, humans can learn biology. The next, more inclusive level of organization is the population, a group of organisms of the same kind that live together in the same place.
