  • Ecosystems are capable of maintaining their state of equilibrium. They can regulate their own species structure and functional processes. This capacity of the ecosystem of self-regulation is known as homeostasis.
  • When an organism tries to maintain a constant internal (within the body) environment that permits all biochemical reactions and physiological functions to proceed with maximal efficiency and thus, enhance the overall ‘fitness’ of the species. This process is known as Homeostasis.
  • This constancy, for example, could be in terms of optimal temperature and osmotic concentration of body fluids.
  • The organism should try  to   maintain  constant internal (within the body) environment (a process called homeostasis) despite varying external environmental conditions that tend to upset its homeostasis.
