    • Biology 1.1 What’s Important ?Biologyis the study of living thingscomes from the Greek root bios- which means “life”and the Greek suffix -logy which means “the study of”.•Organism – scientific term fora living thing.•Habitat – region where theorganism usually lives.
    • •Organism – scientific term for a living thing.•Habitat – region where the organism usually lives.4 Major fields of biology  botany – study of plants zoology – study of animals
    • 4 Major fields of biology  botany – study of plants zoology – study of animalshuman anatomy and physiology -study of physical structures and thefunctions of the human body.
    • 4 Major fields of biology  botany – study of plants zoology – study of animals human anatomy and physiology - study of physical structures and the functions of the human body.ecology – the study ofinteractions between organismsand their environment and eachother.
    • ecology – the study of interactions between organisms and theirenvironment and each other.Food chain – a sequence oforganisms related to one anotheras prey and predator.
    • Food chain – a sequence of organisms related to one another as prey and predator.Parts of the food chain: 1. producers• usually a photosynthetic organism (make own food from sunlight) •are at the base of the food chain •All energy comes from them •usually green - chlorophyll
    • 2.Consumer –derives nutrientsand energy from consumingother organisms.Includes: • herbivores or primary consumers – they consume plants
    • 2. Consumers Includes:• carnivores or secondary consumers - they consume other animals that once consumed plants.
    • 2. Consumers Includes • omnivores -who can be primary or secondary consumers - eat plants or other animals.
    • • Omnivores who can be primary or secondary consumers - eat plants or other animals.3. Decomposers - are organisms that breakdown dead or decaying organisms. Includes:
    • We will begin our course study of biology in the field of botany. Reasons for studying botany:1. many medications are derived from plants2. important to industry (lumber, paper, clothing,acetate, rayon, etc)3. all food eaten by man comes directly or indirectly from plants
