There are several hypotheses about the natural origins of life on Earth, each with supporting scientific evidence.
1.D.2. Scientific evidence from many different disciplines supports models of the origins of life. 2.B. Growth, reproduction and dynamic homeostasis require that cells create and maintain internal environments that are different from their external environments. 2.B.1.

2.B.2. Growth and dynamic homeostasis are maintained by the constant movement of molecules across the membrane.
2.B.3. Eukaryotic cells maintain internal membranes that partition the cell into specialized regions. 2.A. Growth, reproduction and maintenance of the organization of living systems require free energy and matter. 2.A.1. All living systems require constant input of free energy.
2.A.2. Organisms capture and store free energy for use in biological processes.
2.A.3. Organisms must exchange matter with the environment to grow, reproduce and maintain organization. 2.D. Growth and dynamic homeostasis of a biological system are influenced by changes in the system's environment. 2.D.1. All biological systems from cells and organisms to populations, communities and ecosystems are affected by complex biotic and abiotic interactions involving exchange of matter and free energy.
2.D.2. Homeostatic mechanisms reflect both common ancestry and divergence due to adaption in different environments.

Many biological processes involved in growth, reproduction and dynamic homeostasis include temporal regulation and coordination. 2.E.1. Timing and coordination of specific events are necessary for the normal development of an organisms, and these events are regulated by a variety of mechanisms.
2.E.2. Timing and coordination of physiological events are regulated by multiple mechanisms.
2.E.3. Timing and coordination of behavior are regulated by various mechanisms and are important in natural selection. 2.C. Organisms use feedback mechanisms to regulate growth and reproduction, and to maintain dynamic homeostasis. 2.C.1. Organisms use feedback mechanisms to maintain their internal environments and respond to external environmental changes.
2.C.2. Organisms respond to changes in their external environments. 3.B. Expression of genetic information involves cellular and molecular mechanisms. 3.B.1. Gene regulation results in differential gene expression, leading to cell specialization.
