Digestion taking larger substances and breaking them down into smaller, useful building blocks
Excretion actively removing waste material from inside to outside (think boundaries)
Growth getting bigger AND follows a patter
Metabolis 1. Boundary Maintenance + Digestion +Excretion + Growth 2. Often used when discussing a particular item or category
Movement ACTIVE (not passive) motion with a function or purpose
Reproduction Offspring
Irritability (Responsiveness) responsiveness to an external stimulus but the response has function for the organism
Homeostasis actively maintaining internal conditions within very narrow limits, despite large changes in external conditions
Negative Feedback Loop (almost universal) the action (effect) reduces the stimulus (affect)
Positive Feedback Loop (rare) 1. the action (effect) increases the stimulus (affect) 2. tends to break homeostasis and often requires a control mechanism external to the loop
