The Big Bang Theory (especially important theory for biology)  Theories are more valued than scientific fact because it has more explanatory power compared to a single piece of information  Theories are never finally proven; it’s just believed to be true until disproven  Scientific method: a means of coming to understand the natural world through observation, questioning, and experimenting observation: the natural world is observed to work a certain way. Step 2 Questioning follows : what, why, or how? Step 3 Hypotheses are proposed to answer the question Step 4 An experiment is conducted for the most promising hypothesis  The nature of Biology  Biology: study of life  Life is defined by these characteristics  Can take in and use energy  Can retain an internal environment  Composed of one or more DNA cells  Can respond to their environment  Process info in DNA which allows function Key: Light Blue = main idea Purple = important parts of the main idea Green = examples Orange = key terms Pink = the definition of the key term Red = especially important  Can reproduce through codes in DNA  Evolved from living things  There are exceptions to the rules  Ex. The majority of female ants/honeybees are sterile; they cannot reproduce  Living things are organized in a hierarchal manner:  organs organ Atoms systems molecules tissues organism Ecosyste m organelle cells populatio communit s n y  Special Qualities of Biology  Biology is traced back to Ancient Greece  Ex. Hippocrates (Hippocratic Oath) + Galen (medicine) + Aristotle (natural history)  Life sciences: a set of disciplines that focus on varying aspects of the living world  Ex. Biology, veterinary medicine, forestry  Biology is a young science; it became its own science in the 19 century  It’s concerned with all rules that govern all species  Concerned less with the universal rules and especially doesn’t care about anything supernatural  Evolution is the most important thread in biology because it has shaped every living thing on Earth  Evolution: gradual modification of the population of living things over time; can result in new species Key: Light Blue = main idea Purple = important parts of the main idea Green = examples Orange = key terms Pink = the definition of the key term Red = especially important
