what is the difference between regulators and conformers

Regulators are the organisms which maintain homeostasis (internal environment) to ensure constant body temperature, constant osmotic concentration etc. It can be thermoregulation or osmoregulation. 
Conformers are organisms that cannot maintain a constant internal environment. Their body temperature changes with the ambient temperature. For example- majority (99 per cent) of animals and nearly all plants.
