The science of Biology
All living thing share the following properties
1.- Cellular organization
4.- Reproduction and Development
6.- Adaptation and Evolution
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
Catabolism : is the breaking dowm of complex molecules (proteins,starch, fat and oil,...)to simpler one (amino acids, glucose,...) These reactions release energy.
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.
The maintaining of a relatively stable internal physiological enviroment in an organism.
: our bodies maintain an internal temperature at 37 C ( 98.6.F).
Reproduction and Development
All living things grow and reproduce.
Reproduction can be asexual and sexual.
Adaptation and Evolution
Motility and Responsiveness
