  1. All living thing share the following properties
    • 1.- Cellular organization
    • 2.- Metabolism
    • 3.- Homeostasis
    • 4.- Reproduction and Development
    • 5.- Heredity
    • 6.- Adaptation and Evolution
  2. Metabolism
    The sum af all the chemical reactions that take place within a living cell (digestion,cellular respiration, photosynthesis,..) Most of these reactions fall into one of two general categories
  3. Catabolism
    Catabolism : is the breaking dowm of complex molecules (proteins,starch, fat and oil,...)to simpler one (amino acids, glucose,...) These reactions release energy.
  4. Anabolism
    • The building up of complex molecules from simpler ones, usually requiring energy.
    • In summary , metabolism degrades macromolecules into smaller ones, then assemble them in large ones needed for the cell and the body.
  5. Homeostasis
    • The maintaining of a relatively stable internal physiological enviroment in an organism.
    • Example: our bodies maintain an internal temperature at 37 C ( 98.6.F).
  6. Reproduction and Development
    • All living things grow and reproduce.
    • Reproduction can be asexual and sexual.
  7. Adaptation and Evolution

    Motility and Responsiveness
