The divisions that occur during segmentation are called cleavages, and the cells that form are called blastomers. In the Animal Kingdom, the difference in the quantity and distribution of calf in the egg determines differences in segmentation, the lower the rate of division. Because of this, we can consider two basic types of segmentation: holoblastic or total that occurs in the whole zygote; meroblastic or partial, which occurs only in part of the egg.
The fluid balance in the body is closely linked to the presence and amount of sodium ion in the blood. When we eat salty foods, our blood sodium increases, which causes increased blood tonicity.

In some plants there are modified leaves that perform specialized functions, such as insect trapping leaves of insectivorous plants and cactus thorns.
Many animals have colored substances in their blood or hemolymph called respiratory pigments. These substances are able to combine with oxygen gas, significantly increasing the body's ability to transport this gas. The main respiratory pigments present in animals are hemoglobin and hemocyanin.
