Overview The Need to Feed
1. Review the terms herbivore, carnivore, omnivore
Concept 33.1 An animal’s diet must supply chemical energy, organic molecules and
essential nutrients
2. What are essential nutrients? What function do they have? Give Examples.
3. What is the difference between a vitamin and a mineral?
4. What is the difference between malnutrition and undernutrition?
Concept 33.2 The main stages of food processing are ingestion, digestion, absorption, and
5. Define and give an example of each.
a. ingestion
b. digestion
c. absorption
d. elimination
6. Explain the difference between intracellular and extracellular digestion. Give an example of

mammalian digestive system
7. What is peristalsis?
8. What are sphincters?
9. Label Figure 33.8. Use an arrow to show where four sphincters would be located.
10. What is a bolus? How does it get moved around?
11. Explain how food gets digested in the stomach using the following diagram.
12. Complete the following chart of chemical digestion in humans.
13. Review the functions of all of the digestive organs from Mr. Anderson’s video.
14. Why do you think the small intestine needs both the villi and microvilli?

21. Explain how teeth show evolutionary adaptations.
22. Explain two mutualistic symbiosis adaptations in animals.
23. What are some stomach and intestinal adaptations and how are they an advantage?
Concept 33.5 Feedback circuits regulate digestion, energy allocation and appetite
24. Explain how hormones control digestion using the figure below.
