This picture contributes evidence to homeostasis by explaining what involuntary actions our body takes to keep us at body temperature.


This clip from the Big Bang Theory explains what homeostasis is. Homeostasis is defined as: the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological processes. Every living organism must maintain a stable internal environment to be able to react to the environment and stay alive. For example if an organism can't keep a stable body temperature they will freeze to death.
