The term homeostasiss was coined around 1930 by the American physiologist Walter Bradford Cannon and popularized in his book The Wisdom of the Body. Homeostasis refers to the attempts of living organisms to maintain certain physiological variables (temperature, acid-base balance, blood glucose, etc.) within narrow margins of variation.
