Living Things:
  • Are ORGANIZED
  • AQUIRE MATERIALS & ENERGY
  • REPRODUCE
  • RESPOND TO STIMULI
  • Are HOMEOSTATIC
  • GROW & DEVELOP
  • Are ADAPTED TO THEIR ENVIRONMENT
1 living things are organized
1. Living things are ORGANIZED
  • they have levels of organization

Cells Tissues Organs Organ systems

atoms molecules

2 living things aquire materials energy
2. Living things AQUIRE MATERIALS & ENERGY
  • Requires an outside source
  • Plants convert sunlight to chemical energy
  • Animals consume food break it down to nutrients provides energy & building blocks
3 living things reproduce
3. Living things REPRODUCE
  • Make more of themselves
  • Essential for the survival of the species
  • Say no more …

for now!

4 living things respond to stimuli
4. Living things RESPOND TO STIMULI
  • this behaviour is necessary for survival
      • Minimizing injury
      • Aquiring food
      • Reproducing
5 living things are homeostatic
5. Living things are HOMEOSTATIC
  • The internal environment stays relatively the sameregardless of changes in the external environment
  • ALL organ systems help maintain homeostasis
  • VERY IMPORTANT in Biology 12!!!
6 living things grow develop
6. Living things GROW & DEVELOP
  • GROWTH is: - an increase in size

- part of development

  • DEVELOPMENT is ALL of the changes that

occur between conception & death

7 living things are adapted to their environment
7. Living things are ADAPTED TO THEIR ENVIRONMENT
  • ADAPTATIONS are modifications that make an organism more suited to its way of life survival … NOT extinction!
      • Part of evolution
