Flashcards in Biology Chapter 1 Deck (26):
The way of seeing something extremely close up
The outside layer of a plant cell
Cells specialised for a particular function
Red blood cell adaptation
Suitable for aerobic respiration because they have no nucleus, they are small and flexible and they have a flattened disc shape.
Resolution is how well you distinguish two objects from each other
Store food so cell can grow
Nerve cell adaptations
They are extremely long in length and can split
It is when particles move to a place with fewer of themselves
An organism is a living thing
Chloroplasts are what conduct photosynthesis
Nucleus is what controls a cell, and is where DNA is stored.
A microscope is an instrument which kets you see close up images of an object
Is a watery jelly like substance which surrounds the things in the cell and gives the cell its shape
An individual thing that is used as an example for is species/type.
Is what a specimen goes on under a microscope
A cell is what makes up everything in the world and is what makes everything in your body work
Is when something reproduces by dividing in half
Rate of diffusion
Is increased when the distance or surface area is increased.
Movement, Respiration, Sensitivity, Growth, Reproduction, Excretion, Nutrition
Something with more than one cell
Mitochondria conducts respiration
Is what lets things in and out of a animal cell and is the outer layer
Are a organism with one cell
Sperm cell adaptations
It has a long tail to swim with and half the amount of chromosomes.
Egg cell adaptations
Has half the amount of chromosomes and is very big.
