metabolism process in an organism which converts energy/matter from outside sources and uses that to sustain life functions
anabolism processes in an organism use energy/simple chemical building blocks to produce large chemicals and structures necessary for life
catabolism processes in an organism breaks down chemicals to produce energy /simple chemicals to produce own food
photosynthesis process green plants/some other organisms use energy of sunlight/simple chemicals to produce own food
herbivores eats only plants
carnivores eat only organisms other than plants
omnivore eats plants/other organisms
producers produce own food
consumers eat living producers/ other consumers for food
decomposers break down the dead remains of other organisms
autotrophs able to make there own food
heterotrophs depend on other organisms for food
receptors special structures that allow living organisms sense the conditions of internal/external enviroment
asexual reproduction reproduction accomplished by 1 organism
sexual reproduction reproduction that requires organisms
inheritance process which physical/biologic characteristics are transmitted from parent(s) to offspring
mutation abrupt and marked change in dna of an organism compared to parents
