Check Your Knowledge About Osmoregulation! How Much You Know About Osmoregulation Quiz

Let's Start

Osmoregulation is the regulation of water and salt content of the body. There are two extreme patterns of responses of an organism to the osmotic condition of the environment. Animals that are osmotically labile change the osmolarity of body fluids according to the osmolarity of the surrounding medium. They are called osmoconformers or Poikilosmotics. Animals that are osmotically stable maintain an internal osmolarity different from the surrounding medium. They are called osmoregulator. So take the Osmoregulation quiz and increase your knowledge about osmoregulation.
