- change generations
What are the
hierarchical levels that biologist study and how do they relate to each other?
Molecular-cluster of atoms
- Cell-smallest unit of living matter
- separated by membrane
- Tissue-group of similar cells with
- specialized function
- Organ-group of different tissues that
- have a specific function
- Organ System-group of organs with a
- specific function
Organism-an individual living thing
- Population-a group of interacting individuals
- of the same species
- Community-the populations of species
- in an area which interact in some way
- Ecosystem-community of living
- organisms and the physical components of the environment for a given are

- additional predictions and test them
- IF TEST DOES NOT SUPPORT HYPOTHESIS:
- revise hypothesis or pose a new one

differ from hypothesis?
- Theory have been tested, where hypothesis can be
What is a
testable hypothesis & and falsifiable hypothesis?
- Testable hypothesis is a hypothesis
- that can be tested
- Falsifiable hypothesis is a hypothesis
- that can be disproven by experimentation
