The neck of the depression then closes and seals itself off as a food vacuole and migrates towards the centre of the cell. The material is digested by enzymes within the cell. Any useful food products resulting from this process are absorbed into the cell cytoplasm. Phagocytosis is a selective process with the cell distinguishing between food particles and harmful materials. Active transport Diffusion is a purely physical process in which molecules or salts move from a region of higher to a region of lower concentration.

The third section of the small intestines is the ileum, where the final absorption is completed. Digestion and absorption are improved by the enormous surface area in the small intestine. Features of this area include: • • • • The great length of the intestines The presence of folds of tissue, increasing the surface area The arrangement of fingerlike projections called villi The great number of these villi on the surface of the small intestine, particularly in the final area, the ileum, for maximum absorption Absorption.

Bony fish possess an additional structure known as the operculum which protects the gills. As water is taken into the mouth of the fish, the fish moves it mouth in order to pump water through the gills, and so oxygen dissolved in the water is absorbed across the gills into the bloodstream of the fish. Carbon dioxide is also released through the gills. 14): • • Food is first torn up into pieces small enough to swallow (mastication). Food enters the alimentary canal mixed with digestive enzymes to further break down the food into simple water-soluble chemicals – the process of digestion.
