Define Anatomy and Physiology.
Anatomy-the study of the structure of an organism and the relationships of its parts.Physiology-is the science that deals with the functions of the living organism and its parts.
Describe how science developes new principles.
Observations and experiments > propose hypothesis > design experiment > collect data > determine if data is biased > refine hypothesis > refine experiments > accept as theory > accept as law.
List the 3 ways in which Physiology can be subdivided as scientific discipline.
1) the type of organism involved such as human physiology or plant physiology2) the organizational level studied such as molecular or cellular physiology3) a specific or systemic function being studied such as neurophysiology, respiratory physiology, or cardiovascular physiology
What is an eponym?

Define complimentarity of structure and function.
Structure determines function, and function influences the actual anatomy of an organism over time.
Give an example of how the chemical macromolecule DNA can have an influence on body structure
Directs the differentiation of specialized cells in the lungs during development so that they can effectively contribute to respiratory function.
