*A system is a group of things and processes that are linked together to perform a particular function(s). Thus a car is a system, I am a system, the Biosystem, a molecule, a cell, all can be seen as systems that are composed of subsystems and exist within environmental systems. An adaptive system is characterized by the ability to respond to its environment in order to perform that function. A complex adaptive system is characterized by emergent properties that facilitate the interaction with its environment. There are some good definitions on the web now.
