Excretion Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Excretion is the process by which waste products of metabolism and other non-useful materials are eliminated from an organism. In vertebrates this is primarily carried out by the lungs, kidneys and skin. This is in contrast with secretion, where the substance may have specific tasks after leaving the cell. Excretion is an essential process in all forms of life. In humans "urine" is carried out through the urethra and that is part of the excretory system.
