Lecture on Body Fluids. 1. Define some key terms related to the regulation of body fluids: I. Internal environment – the fluid environment that bathes the cells (extracellular fluid) composed of the interstitial fluid and blood. II. Osmolarity – solute concentration expressed in milliosmoles per liter of solution (mOsm/L). Teacher Tip The presentation of the topic on Regulation of Body. - Most marine animals are osmoconformers - Usually cannot tolerate a large change in body salinity, and therefore live in environments where salinity doesn't change much (organisms .   About two-thirds is in the intracellular fluid compartment (ICF). The intracellular fluid is the fluid within the cells of the body. The remaining one-third of body water is outside cells, in the extracellular fluid compartment (ECF). The ECF is the body’s internal environment and the cells external environment.
