Red Fox
P.S. There weren't many pictures for the red fox body parts, so we used dog body parts instead {foxes are the ancestors of dogs}.

SKELETAL FUNCTION
Supports and helps with movement of the body. It also produces red blood cells in the bone marrow.
MUSCULAR FUNCTION
Permits movement of the body, maintains posture, and circulates blood throughout the body.
MUSCULAR-SKELETAL
This interaction is the extensors and flexors between the bones and muscles. Both systems also provide mobility for the body.
Invertebrates
Vertebrates
Disease does not affect muscular system
Anatomy of Human/Dog
A change in our organism's population would affect its population significantly, because all of the organisms rely on each other to survive. For instance, if we took away the grass, the grasshopper population would eventually go extinct. Then a decrease in the red fox and bear population would occur, and then the snake population would decrease making them only have mice and birds to eat. Eventually, the bird and mice population will decrease, then solely consume products the oak tree produces. This would make the oak tree population decrease, and then the small birds, caterpillar and squirrel population eventually go down. The eagle, hawk, snake population would then decrease dramatically, because all of the organisms would start to die off. The decomposer, the mushroom, would have more decaying matter for them to consume.

Vertebrates
Disease does not affect digestive system
Invertebrates
Digestive/Excretory System
DIGESTIVE FUNCTION
To convert food into energy and nutrients needed to feed the whole body.
EXCRETORY FUNCTION
To eliminate nitrogenous waste from the body and help maintain water balance.
DIGESTIVE-EXCRETORY
Digestive system breaks down the food into nutrients, excreting solid waste, and the excretory system eliminates the liquid waste from the body.
Sarcoptic Mange
WHAT
A skin disease caused by a arthropod known as the mange mite.
SYMPTOMS
thinning/loss of hair
thickening/wrinkling of skin
scab and crust formation
an accumulation of wet, bad-smelling, crusted exudate on the head
emaciation/weakness
HOW IT'S SPREAD
Mange mites spread to new hosts by direct body contact, then making its nest in the skin layers, fertilizing and reproducing.
Recommendations to WWF
Ivermectin: a treatment whose doses contain a toxin that's used to kill mange mites
"01 Sarcoptic Mange (Scabies)." Veterinary Partner. Web. 21 Apr. 2015. <http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Content.plx?A=616>.

Send workers out to help by trimming the hair of the foxes, bathing/cleansing with a benzoyle peroxide shampoo for the skin and applying a lime sulfur dip afterwards. This should help decrease the number of mites.

How Mange disrupts homeostasis
When the organism gets Sarcoptic Mange, homeostasis is affected in the integumentary system. This causes the skin to develop large sores and dry crusty sores, resulting in hair loss in the affected area. Because of the sores, the animal is more prone to other infections and diseases.
Circulatory/Immune System
CIRCULATORY FUNCTION
Delivers oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
IMMUNE FUNCTION
Fights off infection and disease.
CIRCULATORY-IMMUNE
Circulatory system helps spread leukocytes (white blood cells) to the immune system.

Integumentary System
FUNCTION
Skin protects you from your environment.
not too hot or too cold
first line of defense/non-specific
not too wet or too dry
keeps bad things out (virus, bacteria...etc.)
keeps good things in (blood, food...etc.)

*this system IS affected by sarcoptic mange*

Integumentary System
Invertebrates
Disease does affect integumentary system-it makes the skin itchy and increasing hair loss, eventually making them bald.
NERVOUS FUNCTION
Controls and coordinates all essential functions of the human body.
RESPIRATORY FUNCTION
To supply the blood with oxygen to be delivered to all parts of the body and gets rid of carbon dioxide.
ENDOCRINE FUNCTION
A system of glands that are responsible for releasing hormones to deliver messages throughout the body.
REPRODUCTIVE FUNCTION
A group of organs (varied from male-female) that work together to produce new life.
ENDOCRINE-REPRODUCTIVE
The endocrine system releases hormones needed for the reproductive system.
Vertebrates
