Data are generated that follow relationships taken from the
biological literature. The "potential educational value for
serious students is great" (Choice). Instructors can edit
descriptive material about each system. The 25 different
systems that can be simulated are listed below.

1. Enzyme activity & amount of starch substrate
2. Temperature and digestion of gelatin by proteinases
3. Ejected volume & blood pressure in a frog heart
4. Hemocyanin oxygen levels at 3 temperatures
5. Blood CO2 and dissolved CO2 for 5 animal species
6. Toxicity of cocaine to white mice
7. Salmon swimming speed & their oxygen consumption
8. Urine/blood cation ratios in the shore crab
9. Ambient and body temperature: 6 animal species
10. Ambient temperature & metabolic CO2 produced
11. Water & fish muscle temperature in 3 species
12. Regulation of sodium influx in a crayfish
13. Time submerged & blood or lung oxygen in a turtle
14. Time submerged & lactic acid in the harbor seal
15. Mammal size & evaporative water loss in a hot desert
16. Oxygen use by climbers at increasing altitudes
17. Oxygen use by tiger moth larvae at different temperatures
18. Crab weight & metabolic rate at 3 temperatures
19. Oxygen use in 3 mayfly species as ambient oxygen changes
20. Osmoregulation: crab, clam, shrimp
21. Pigmy mouse body temp over 24-hr when kept at 20C
22. Adrenalectomy & salt-gland secretion in duck
23. Cuticle temperature and loss of water from the cockroach
24. Pu mping rate for mussel Mytilus and temperature
25. Shrimp eyestalk removal & the effect on ovarian weight
