Characteristics of-life1805

  1. 1. All living things share some basic properties.Cellular OrganizationReproductionMetabolism (Obtain and Use Energy)HomeostasisHeredityResponsivenessGrowth and DevelopmentAdapt Through Evolution
  2. 2. Smallest unit capable of all life functionsUnicellular Organisms Entire organism is made up of one single cell Bacteria and protists
  3. 3. Multicellular OrganismsThe organism is made up of manycellsCells have specialized functionswithin the organism
  4. 4. Reproduction is the process of producing neworganisms of the same typeAsexual Reproduction A single parent organism reproducing by itself
  5. 5. Sexual ReproductionTwo different parent organisms contribute geneticinformationInvolves the combination of male and female sexcells
  6. 6. Living organisms need energy togrow, develop, repair damage, andreproduce
  7. 7. AnabolismThe process of building up complex substancesfrom simpler substances  Building up cells and cellular components  Photosynthesis
  8. 8. CatabolismThe process of breaking down complexsubstances into simpler substances to releaseenergy Digestion Cellular Respiration
  9. 9. MetabolismThe total of all chemical reactions inan organism Anabolism + Catabolism = Metabolism
  10. 10. A stable state of conditions in the bodythat are necessary for lifeBody temperatureBlood volumepH balanceWater balance
  11. 11. Genes carry hereditary informationGenes are composed of DNAHeredity is the reason children resemble their parents Mutations change DNA code and can be passed from generation to generation
  12. 12. An example is a plant’sOrganisms react to stimuli: leaves and stems growingLight toward lightTemperatureOdorSoundGravityHeatWaterPressure
  13. 13. Growth means to get bigger in size
  14. 14. Development involves a change in thephysical form or physiological make-up ofan organism
  15. 15. AdaptationA process that enablesorganisms to become bettersuited to their environment Species obtain adaptationsthrough evolution over greatperiods of time
