    1. integumentary system. this is involves the skin, temperature regulation etc
    2. Skeletal system. This includes the bones and ligaments (Ligaments link bones to bones)
    3. Muscular system. Involves skeletal muscles and tendons. (tendons tie muscles to bone.)
    4. Nervous system. Involves brain, spinal cord, nerves and sensory organs for control, co-ordination, sensation and regulation of other systems. also is includes memory.
    5. Endocrine system. involves the glands; adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, pancreas, parathyroid etc. Uses hormone secretions to control and regulate the other systems.
    6. Cardiovascular system. Involves the heart, veins, arteries, and capillaries. Enables blood flow and the transport of materials.
    7. Respiratory system. Involves lungs, bronchial tree, trachea, larynx and nasal cavity. Enables respiration (gas exchange) and maintains the acid-base balance.
    8. Digestive system. involves the stomach, small intestine, large intestine, esophagus, liver, mouth and pancreas. enables the breakdown and absorption of nutrients and the elimination of wastes.
    9. Urinary system. involves the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. allows the excretion of waste, maintains the fluid-electrolyte balance and the acid-base balance.
    10. Reproductive system. Involves the (Males) testes, vas deferons, prostate, seminal glands, and penis. (females) ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, vagina and breasts. enables reproduction, continuity of genetic information and the nurturing of offspring.
