Furthermore, because many organisms are mainly composed of water, the property of high heat capacity allows highly regulated internal body temperatures. Hy4Heat. Watch the recordings here on Youtube! Water has the highest specific heat capacity of any liquid.

The resistance to sudden temperature changes makes water an excellent habitat, allowing organisms to survive without experiencing wide temperature fluctuation. Legal. Hi! up! Have questions or comments? Explain the biological significance of water’s high specific heat. Due to its high heat capacity, water is used by warm blooded animals to more evenly disperse heat in their bodies; it acts in a similar manner to a car’s cooling system, transporting heat from warm places to cool places, causing the body to maintain a more even temperature.
