boundary protection
open system inputs and outputs flow out of the system
closed system all of the inputs and outputs are contained within the system
isolated system limitations of either the inputs or the outputs
control manages input and output
feedback output that becomes input within the same system to form a loop
what are our body system levels? cells-tissues-organs
model smaller or larger scale representation of a larger system
physical model smaller or larger copy of an object
conceptual model diagram/flow chart
mathematical model equation or set of equations
simulation model often in form of a computer model, used to test variables and observe outcomes
emergent property individual parts dont have characteristics of the whole
geosphere solid features of eath's surface
hydrosphere earth's water
biosphere living things on earth
atmosphere where all air envelops earth's solid and liquid surface
ecosystem all living/nonliving things in a given area
