Found in darkest, deepest oceans and the ice of Antarctica. Variety of shapes and sizes: Plants: tiny mosses to giant redwoods Animals: honey pot ants to blue whales Worker honeypot ants / Tom D. / License Photos by Susan Sachs Lipman & Michael Lipman THE STUDY OF LIFE Biosphere

All living things and all the places they are found on Earth make up the biosphere. Every part is connected (CONTINUED) Air, Water, Land and even the inside of your nose (home to bacteria/fungi) Biodiversity The variety of life (across the biosphere) is called biodiversity. Biodiversity is greater as you get closer to the equator.

Consistently warmer temperatures (compared to large temperature changes) This provides larger, more consistent food supply for more species THE STUDY OF LIFE (CONTINUED) Species is a particular type of living thing that can reproduce by interbreeding. 2 million identified Tens of millions remain to be discovered

Over one half of the know species are insects Every year about 10,000 new species are discovered. Expanding your knowledge: A daughter species is a new species, evolved from a parent species, having most of the parents genetic information. Pseudoextinction: extinction of the parent species when the daughter species still exist. Example: Dinosaurs pseudoextinct some of their descendants, birds, survive today. APPLY: Explain Biodiversity in terms of species STUDY OF LIFE (CONTINUED)

**** Organisms and Shared Characteristics An organism is any individual living thing, and Biology is the study of all forms of life. Characteristics of living things 1. Cells: All organisms are made of one or more cells. A cell is the basic unit of life Unicellular (single celled) Multicellular Multicellular Image from: http:// www.tutorvista.com/biology/unicellular-and-multicellular (many cells) Images from: http:// www.biologycorner.com/bio1/notes_plantlikeprotists.html

Multi Cell Video 1m:49s Different cells have different functions, specialized functions to carry out the necessary functions of life. Muscle cells contract and relax Stomach cells secrete digestive juices Brain cells interpret sensory information Multicellular Image from: http:// www.tutorvista.com/biology/unicellular -and-multicellular THE STUDY OF LIFE

(CONTINUED) 2. Need For Energy: all organisms need a source of energy, which is the ability to cause a change or do work. Chemical Energy is the form of energy used Plants use sunlight (light energy) and convert it to chemical energy Some organisms, like animals use other organisms as their source of energy. FoodChain Image from: http://www.ck12.org/ck12/images?id=350637 THE STUDY OF LIFE (CONTINUED)

Producers make their own food Primary consumers eat plants. Secondary consumers eat other organisms. FoodChain Image from: http:// www.ck12.org/ck12/images?id=350637 Metabolism: the chemical process that builds up or breaks down materials. THE STUDY OF LIFE (CONTINUED)

3. Response to environment: all organisms must react to their environment to survive. Stimuli is a physical factor to which organisms must respond. Light, touch, temperature are a few, but there are many others. Turtle image from: www.grit.com Flower pot image from: www.sciencephoto.com Sunflower Image from: http:// www.wonderwhizkids.com/index.php/biology/p lant-form-and-function/plant-responses THE STUDY OF LIFE (CONTINUED) 4. Reproduction and Development: All organisms must be able to produce new individuals or reproduce.

Reproducing allows organism to pass on of genetic material Genetic material is in a molecule called DNA Deoxyribonucleic acid Development allows organisms to change, mature and gain the ability to reproduce. THE STUDY OF LIFE (CONTINUED) Asexual Reproduction Worksheet

Biodiversity A variety of life within an area. Biology Scientific study of all forms of life. Biosphere All organisms and the part of the Earth where they exist. Cell Basis unit of life. DNA Molecule that stores genetic information in all organisms. Metabolism All chemical processes that synthesize or break down materials within an organism.

Organism Any individual living thing. Species Group of organisms so similar to one another that they can breed and produce fertile offspring. UNIFYING THEMES OF BIOLOGY Levels of Life Systems of Related Parts A system is an organized group of related parts, like a car, that work together as a whole One Heart cell = chemicals and processes that make heart muscle, valves, arteries, veins, resulting in the circulatory system.

Systems exist on all levels in biology Unseen Molecules Cells viewed only by a microscope Entire biosphere UNIFYING THEMES IN BIOLOGY (CONTINUED) Ecosystem is a physical environment with different species that interact with one another and with non-living things.

Two organisms that interact can be part of a system, such as with an ecosystem. Ecosystems can be large regions (desert) or small areas (individual tree) Different biologist study different systems DNA = chemical interactions Bird behavior might be predator/prey interactions Most biologist study across different system levels CONNECT: Describe how your biology class could be considered a system.

UNIFYING THEMES IN BIOLOGY (CONTINUED) Structure and Function are Related Organisms have parts that perform specific functions, based on their structure Teeth help organisms eat but the shape helps in different ways. Molar teeth are flat for grinding, incisors are pointed for tearing Incisor Canine Molar https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=BdxWN_xBa6k UNIFYING THEMES IN BIOLOGY (CONTINUED)

Structure and function are related on the level of chemicals in cells Specific Protein Molecules for example: Membrane Channels a tube like structure extends through membranes so things can pass Enzymes shaped differently based on what they attach to allow chemical processes to occur. www.chem4kids.com- UNIFYING THEMES IN BIOLOGY (CONTINUED)

Structure and function are related on the level of the cell Brain cells process information have branches that receive information from other cells Red blood cells carry oxygen small, diskshaped to fit through small blood vessels. Structure and function are related on the level of the organism Your feet are flat and help you walk, easily, on various surfaces Beetles tarsi/feet, have sharp prongs to grip smooth or vertical surfaces. entnemdept.ufl.edu- www.timesofmalta.com-

INFER: Do you think heart muscle has the same structure as arm muscle? EXPLAIN WHY or WHY NOT. UNIFYING THEMES IN BIOLOGY (CONTINUED) Organisms Maintain Homeostasis Homeostasis the maintaining of constant internal conditions; cells perform within a limited range of conditions. Breakdowns can be life-threatening Negative feedback causes a response that often returns the system back to its original state

Body temperature drops Muscles shiver blood vessels near the surface constrict body temperature rises. Some animals move from place to place, but still to help regulate body temperature. UNIFYING THEMES IN BIOLOGY (CONTINUED) Polar bears maintain homeostasis because their hair has a hollow shaft which helps it to retain heat. This hollow shaft is transparent and polar bears appear white due to reflecting visible light.

The structure of the polar bears hair is related to its function, as the thickness offers insulation and the hollow core allow trapped air to be kept warm by body heat. Polar Bears Hollow hair shaft SUMMARIZE: What is homeostasis, and why is it important? UNIFYING THEMES IN BIOLOGY (CONTINUED) Evolution Explains Unity and Diversity Evolution is the change in living things over

time, more specifically in the genetic makeup. Scientific evidence including fossil records and genetic comparisons of species shows evolution is continuing today. Occurs through natural selection of adaptations Genetic or inherited traits help an individual species to survive more successfully than another within its environment. Two populations may develop different traits, and potentially form different species. UNIFYING THEMES IN BIOLOGY (CONTINUED)

Adaptation is an inherited trait that gives an advantage to individual organisms and is passed on to future generations. Examples: Orchids (flower) produce flowers that look like insects, this then lures other insects to the flower and this helps pollinate the flower (reproducing) Thorn bugs sit on flower stems, appearing to look like a thorn, making them less likely to be eaten by other predators. This allows the thorn bug better opportunities to reproduce. www.flowerweb.com

smashinglistz.blogspot.com UNIFYING THEMES IN BIOLOGY (CONTINUED) Evolution is a unifying theme because it accounts for the unity and diversity of life. Unity of life How organisms are similar or related to one another, have similar structures and / or functions Diversity How organisms are different from each other, possibly due to evolution, natural selection and genetic traits changing. ********************************************************* *** Acclimation is when an individual take time to adjust to a new environmental condition.

Example: climber stay in some areas a little longer until they can acclimate to the oxygen levels. ANALYZE: How does evolution lead to both the diversity and the unity of life? VOCABULARY TO KNOW (1.2 UNIFYING THEMES OF BIOLOGY) TERM TO KNOW DEFINITION TO KNOW Adaptation Inherited trait that is selected for, over time, because it allows organisms to better survive in their environment. Ecosystem Collection of organisms and nonliving things, such as climate, soil, water and rocks, in an area.

Evolution Changes in a species over time; process of biological change by which decedents come to differ from their ancestors. Homeostasis Regulation and maintenance of constant internal conditions in an organism. System Changing, organized group or related parts that interact to form a whole. SCIENTIFIC THINKING AND PROCESSES BIOLOGY IS A PROCESS OF INQUIRY Observation, Data, and Hypothesis Careful and systematic observation (using senses)

Data can / should be analyzed Qualitative data descriptions of a phenomenon often for reporting what happened, now HOW. Quantitative data characteristics that can be measured often used to tell HOW something happens. Hypothesis is a proposed answer to a scientific question. This must be testable (experiment) and often more than once. SCIENTIFIC THINKING AND PROCESSES (CONTINUED)

Observing Scientist make observations and examine prior research Evaluating results Scientists evaluate the data and conclusions presented by other scientists Forming Hypothesis Scientist ask questions and try to explain observations Analyzing Data Scientist analyze their data to draw conclusions about their research Testing Hypothesis Scientist collect data that they use to support or reject a hypotheis SYNTHESIZE: Where in the cycle would retesting a

hypothesis fit? EXPLAIN YOUR ANSWER SYNTHESIZE: Why is there no one correct process of scientific investigation? SCIENTIFIC THINKING AND PROCESSES (CONTINUED) Using Experiments to Test A Hypothesis Independent Variables what is manipulated or changed during the experiment. One per experiment Dependent Variable the experimental data

These changes depend upon the independent variable. The effect are measured Constant The part of the experiment that does not change. It is used to measure and compare the changes of the dependent variable. SCIENTIFIC THINKING AND PROCESSES (CONTINUED) EXAMPLE: Question Independent Dependent
