The endocrine system provides a storage site for excess raw materials needed by cells, and the circulatory system provides a means for transporting them.
The circulatory system signals to target cells in the endocrine system when changes need to be made to maintain balance in the body.

  • I don't know -

    The only biology class I ever took was with a terrible teacher in high school over 60 years ago.

  • Science Ms. Sue Please -

    3 and 5 are wrong.

    #3's answer is that hormone levels will decrease. Your answer may be true, but that's not what the question is looking for.

    #5's answer is that it produces hormones which are transported throughout the body. You answer... is a bit strange. the endocrine system has nothing to do with waste disposal, and question #2 shows you know this. So what was up with that?
