What do you think the above fields involve?
Though life science can be divided in to branches, the different fields of study often .
OVERLAP
Biologists investigate an incredible range of questions, but underlying all of their work are or concepts!
BIG IDEAS
The big ideas in science include:
"Organisms are , yet
share similar characteristics."
DIVERSE
Living organisms come in all shapes and sizes, but they also have basic .
SIMILARITIES
All organisms are made of tiny building blocks called .
Every living thing is made up of mainly and .
All organisms require .
All organisms go through growth and

lifetime.
All living things .

"Groups of organisms

CHANGE
The of any group of organisms can change over time.
CHARACTERISTICS
The gradual process of change that occurs in groups of organisms is called:
EVOLUTION
"The structure and function of
organisms are ."
COMPLEMENTARY
The structure of an organism allows it to function.

STRUCTURE

FUNCTION
The way that an organism is put
together as a whole.
The processes that enable an organism
to survive.
Structures and functions are complementary, which means they to meet the needs of the organism.
WORK TOGETHER
"Organisms operate on the same
principles as the rest of the natural world."
PHYSICAL
All living things follow the same rules, or
, as the rest of nature.
PRINCIPLES
Example
Principles of explain the
process of how plants capture energy
from the sun.

Principles of chemistry also explain how animals their food.

Rules of heredity are based on the
chemical structure of .

DNA
Example
Principles of explain the
life processes; like the relationship
between the physics of and the way the eye functions.

To understand how the eyes function, scientists must know what light is and
how light .
