Characteristics of Organisms.  Acquire and use materials and energy.  Actively maintain organized complexity.  Perceive and respond to stimuli through specialized cells.  Grow.  Reproduce.  Have the capacity to evolve.  Can be studied and integrated on many different levels. WHAT IS LIFE? Life emerges at the level of a cell; either unicellular or multicellular. 1. Complex, organized structures. In order of least complex to most complex:  Atoms  Molecules  Cell – unit of life  Tissue  Organ  Organ system  Organism  Population  Community  Ecosystem  Biosphere This can also be referred to as the hierarchy of complexity. 2. Homeostasis – Active maintenance of internal balance. 3. Growth 4. Energy and material acquisition – metabolism. 5. ADAPTIVE response capability – the ability to survive in an environment. 6. Reproduction 7. Evolution  Genes  Mutations  Natural selection Classification of Life’s Diversity. There are 5 kingdoms which are broken down based on their cell type, cell number, and nutrient acquisition. 1. Cell type is divided into 2, namely; prokaryotic, and eukaryotic. 2. Cell number is divided into 2, namely’ unicellular (one cell), and multicellular (more than one cell). 3. Nutrient acquisition is divided into 3; absorbtive, photosynthesis, and ingestive. The Kingdoms  Kigdom Monera – prokaryotic  Kingdom Protista – eukaryotic and unicellular  Kingdom Fungi – eukaryotic, multicellular, and absorbtive  Kingdom Plantae – eukaryotic, multicellular, and photosunthetic  Kingdom Animalia – eukaryotic, multicellular, and ingestive. Scientific Principles. 1. Natural casuality – all natural phenomenon have natural causes. 2. Uniformitarianism – uniformity in time and space. 3. Common perception – one individual cannot dictate truth. Scientific Method 1. Observation – collect and organize information. 2. Hypothesis – explanations must be tested. 3. Experimentation  Control vs experimental variable  Replicate 4. Re-evaluation 5.Conclusion – this becomes a theory (a proven hypothesis).
