World of Life Supply Network cockroach exhibit

Supply Network

Every living thing takes in supplies—like food, oxygen, water and minerals—and gets rid of waste. For one-celled organisms, that's easy to do, since the supplies and waste don't have far to go. But for more complex living things, supply networks have to move supplies and waste to and from every cell. Explore and find out what keeps supplies on the move.
