Circulatory system

A circulatory system (sometimes cardiovascular system) is an organ system that moves substances to and from cells; it can also help stabilize body temperature and pH (part of homeostasis).

There are three types of circulatory systems (from simplest to most complex): no circulatory system, open circulatory system, and closed circulatory system.
