This may sound stupid but I'm so confused and stressed about this.
I read about 'adaptions for exchanging materials' and it gave a list but then it said that the alveoli is adapted for gas exchange and I'm assuming its the same thing??? When it says exchange surface does it just mean alveoli? I tried looking on here but I don't understand the way they word it and I can't download anything so can someone please explain gas exchange to me?

I think it means-
- Exchange with alveoli
- Exchange in the gut wall
And how they are adapted:
- Maintenance of steep concentration gradient (good blood supply from capillaries)
- Moist surfaces
- Large surface areas (micro villi in gut and grape shaped alveoli)
- Short diffusion pathway in alveoli

Exchange with aveoli basically means the exhange with oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood if that helps?
