 Biology – the study of life What is living in this picture?
 There are 5 characteristics that all living thingsshare.
1.) All living things are made of cells.- Smallest unit that can carry out life processes.- Multicellular vs. Unicellular ...
2. All living things can reproduce.- Asexual vs. Sexual reproduction.
3. All living things pass genetic information on totheir offspring (heredity).
4. All living things use energy to carry out lifeprocesses (metabolism).-heterotrophsvs. autotrophs
6. All living things must maintain a constantinternal environment by responding to stimuli(homeostasis).
 Organisms are influenced by other things in their environment. Biotic factors are living things that affect other livin...
 Life can be studied from a microscopic level to amacroscopic level.
 The smallest unit of matter.
 Created when two or more atoms “bond”together.
 The smallest “working” unit of a living thing. Cells are made various atoms and molecules. Cells use various elements ...
 A group of similar cells performing a specificfunction.
 A group of tissues performing the samefunction.
 A group of organs performing the samefunction.
 A living thing with multiple systems workingtogether to maintain homeostasis.
 A group of living things that can “interbreed”and produce “fertile” offspring.
 A group of the “same species” living in aspecific area.
 ALL of the living things that live in a specificarea.
 All of the living (biotic) and non-living (abiotic)that make up an area.
