Characteristics and Organization of Life
The parent’s genetic material (DNA) is passed on to the offspring
Every organism becomes larger over time
Sensory organs can detect and respond to external stimuli
The cell theory states that the cell is the basic unit of life
Domain Eukarya contains four kingdoms
Three major domains of life
Materials and energy required to maintain organization, grow, and reproduce
Organisms must maintain relatively constant internal conditions
All cells contain:
Response to Stimuli
Offspring may be genetically different from parents
What is life?
Characteristics of Life
Living things are more than the sum of their parts
Complexity and ordered interactions
Internal stimuli are perceived by stretch, temperature, pain, and chemical receptors
Unicellular organisms enlarge their cells
Multicellular organisms produce more cells
Natural selection is a mechanism which explains how evolution works
All living things are related
