Example text

The surface layer consists of dead cells that are constantly being rubbed off and replaced from below. The epidermis constitutes the barrier between the moist internal environment and the dry atmosphere of the external environment. The dermis contains tiny sweat glands that have little canals or ducts, leading to the surface. Hairs grow from follicles in the dermis. The dermis is rich in sensory nerve endings sensitive to pain, temperature and touch. It is a vast organ that constantly provides the central nervous system with sensory input from the body surfaces.

The material in this textbook is also supported by a new edition of the accompanying study guide, which provides students who prefer paper-based activities the opportunity to test their learning and improve their revision skills. Most features from the previous edition have been retained and revised, including learning outcomes, a list of common prefixes, suffixes and roots, and extensive in-text cross-references. A new and comprehensive glossary has been prepared for this edition. Some biological values, extracted from the text, are presented as an appendix for easy reference.

The lungs are important regulators of blood pH because they excrete carbon dioxide (CO2). CO2 increases [H+] in body fluids because it combines with water to form carbonic acid, which then dissociates into a bicarbonate ion and a hydrogen ion. The lungs, therefore, help to control blood pH by regulating levels of excreted CO2.
