Homeostasis

Homeostasis is a state of equilibrium produced by a balance of functions and of chemical composition within an organism.

Example: The body produces more red blood cells to cope with the lack of oxygen at high altitudes. In other words, the internal system of the body adjusted to the change in external environment for the survival of the organism.

In plants, homeostasis is maintained by chemicals (hormones) alone.
