In your assigned readings, you learned how size limits the distribution of gases, water and nutrients in animals. Chose a simple/small animal and a complex/large animal and compare the use of organ systems to meet a metabolic or reproductive need. You will focus on a single function; e.g., respiration, circulation, digestion, excretion, or reproduction. In your opinion, does increased size provide an adaptation for this function? Explain your position.
