the scientific name for an organism comes from its genus and species
the seven levels of classification , from general to specific , are kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species
what can you find out by working through a dichotomous key in order? the identity of an organism
the science of describing, classifying and naming organisms taxonomy
an aid that is used to identify organisms and that consists of a series of paired statements dichotomous key
the divison of organisms into groups or classes based on specific characteristics classification
a kingdom that contains all prokaryotes except archaebacteria eubacteria
a kingdom made up of complex, multicellular organisms that lack cell walls, can usually move around, and responds quickly to their enviornment animalia
a kingdom of mostly one-celled eukaryotic organisms that are different from plants, anmials, bacteria, and fungi protista
a kingdom of complex, multicellular oragnisms that are usually green, haveb cell walls, cannot move around, and use the sun's energy to make sugar by photosynhesis plantae
a kingdom of nongreen, eukaryotic organisms that do not move, reproduce by spores, and get food from their surroundings by breaking down substances and absorbing the nutrients fungi
a kingdom made up of bacteria that live in extreme environments archaebacteria
they are found where other living things cannot survive archaebacteria
they can live in soil,water, or in the human body eubacteria
these are small, single-celled living things without nuclei bacteria
the total of all of the chemical activities that the oragnism performs metabolism
reproduction in which the sex cells from two parents unite,producing offspring that share traits from both parents sexual reproduction
reproduction that does not involve the union of sex cells and in which one parent produces offspring identical to itself asexual reproduction
the passing of one generation to the next heredity
what type of molecule is DNA? a nucleic acid
maintaining stable internal conditions is called homeostasis
the molecule that provides energy for cellular process is ATP
what is the one thing all living things can do ? they grow and develop
how much of the human body is water? about 70%
an oragnism that makes its own food producer
an oragnism that eats other organisms or organic matter consumer
an organism breaks down the remains of dead organisms or animal waste to get energy decomposer
humans like you are organisms
one benfit from being a large organism is that you have fewer predators
the highest level of organization is the system
an organ consists of two or more tissues
larger size, longer life, and specialization are three advantages to being a multicellular organism
where do all cells come from cells
what does the golgi complex do in a cell it packages and distributes proteins
what is the job of the lysosmes they digest food particle
what cell parts support the cell and might be made of cellulose or chitin ? cell wall
the lowest level of oragization is the cell
cells that are like each other and do the same job form a tissue
a structure made of two or more tissues working together is called organ
a group of organs that work together from an organ system
a genetic material in cells DNA
where DNA ia stored eukaryote
osmosis is important to cells because cells are filled with fluids that are made mostly of water
one type of fermantation in muscle cells produces lactic acid
photosynthesis allows a plant to produce food
when water diffuses into or out of a cell it is called osmosis
most complex organisms obtain energy through cellular respiration
what gas is released during cellular respiration? carbon dioxide
what do all organisms need to get rid of in order to live? wastes
osmosis benefits plant cells by bringing in water
when a human feels hungry it is because his or her cells need energry
