The process by which an organism produces offspring through the exchange of genetic material is referred to as what?
The process by which an organism produces offspring without exchanging genetic material is?
What is the process by which living things react/ respond to changing conditions in their environment?
The process by which simple substance are broken down through digestion and pass through internal parts of an organism is?
The process by which an organism changed from its juvenile stage into its mature form is?
The process by which chemical bonds holding atoms of food molecules are broken down to produce energy for life functions is?
The process by which food molecules are moved throughout the body to the individual cells and wasted products are picked up for elimination is?
What form of digestion is the process by which food is broken down initially before being ingested?
What form of digestion is the process by which food is broken down within the cells into its component atoms?
The process by which digested food is converted into new living tissue if the organism that consumed it is?
Organisms that consume other things to gain energy
Feeds on only heterotrophs
Feeds off both autotrophs and heterotrophs
Organism that is capable of producing its own food
Type of organism that feeds on the fluids of the internal organs of its host is?
Type of organism that feeds of dead or decaying organisms
Type of organism that feeds in the fluids just below the epidermis if its host
Autotrophs use sunlight to produce food are using what?
Autotrophs use chemicals to produce food are using what process?
During Assimilation simple sugars are converted into what?
Fats, oils, starches, and glycogen
During Assimilation amino acids are converted into what?
Proteins and enzymes
What 2 vessels are involved in carrying food and wastes throughout the body?
Arteries and veins
What does an artery do?
Pumps food and oxygen to cells
What does the vein do?
Pumps waste and carbons dioxide away from cells
What two vessels carry food and water throughout plants?
Xylem and Phloem
What does the xylem do?
Pumps water minerals up from the roots
What does phloem do?
Pumps food down to the roots
An organism uses its 5 senses to pick up what from its environment?
The reaction of organisms to the changes in their environment are?
The process which a sperm united with the ovum during sexual reproduction is?
Why are life processes of an organism so difficult to detect and classify?
Huge variety of living things, most life processes are internal, many organisms feed internally or camouflage, habitats are hard to reach diverse and hostile, and animals move around are hard to find and often flee
