11.3 The Kidney & Osmoregulation

BioKnowledgy Presentation on 11.3 The kidney and osmoregulation (AHL) from Chris Paine

OSMOREGULATION

Mr Paul Andersen (from Bozeman High) describes Osmoregulation (including in fish which you don’t need to know) in a 8m 57s lesson.

Osmoregulator or Osmoconformer? Here are two videos about contractile vacuoles in Paramecium (they are osmoregulators): Paramecium vacuole (1m video) and contractile vacuole (a 27s explanation). If it goes wrong – Paramecium exploding!

THE KIDNEYS

A nice introduction to how the kidneys work (from TED-Ed):

A superb flash animation on the Kidneys from kscience.

An animated tutorial from McGraw Hill Education on basic Renal processes and here’s an animated, narrated tutorial on the mammalian kidney which also includes a quiz (from Sinauer Associates).

In Crash Course Biology #29 – The Excretory System: From Your Heart to the Toilet, Hank takes us on the fascinating journey through our excretory system to learn how our kidneys make pee.
