Read in the Owl book pages 1038-1041 and answer the following questions

2. What is an antagonistic hormone?
3. Why are Glucagon and Insulin considered antagonistic hormones? (refer to the

4. Read the short definition of Negative and Positive Feedback, then make a

the definitions.
5. Make a diagram that shows how LH controls the amount of Estrogen released.
Use the 2 graphs at the top of 1039 for this question.
In the first graph Negative Feedback, what is it that is making the amount of
B to decrease?
In the second graph Positive Feedback, why do the lines for A and B follow

which stimulated the whole process to start! This is an example of ________________
