Debate and discussion of any biological questions not pertaining to a particular topic.
ok i have to creat a imaginary animal for a school project. i also have to list the 7 aspects of life. i have no idea what they mean and i have looked everywhere! whats homeostasis i know it mean the ablility to have a stable internal enviroment, but i need examples.. whats cellular organization ( how is is organized what type of cells does it have) metabolism( how does the animal use and obtain energy and what does it eat) and heredity ( what characteristics did it get from its parents) any help i would like. remeber its supposed to be a imaginary animal so just lis exammples for my questions. also the animal i creatd is a mamal. thanks
Well it has to be pluricellular, with lots of types of cells(human has more than 150). Since it is immaginary, you can design it just like you want: a ferocious carnivore or as a mild herbivore. There are really no limits to what you can do. You can say it has pink eyes. It's really your choise
"As a biologist, I firmly believe that when you're dead, you're dead. Except for what you live behind in history. That's the only afterlife" - J. Craig Venter
Cellular Organization - All organisms consist of one or more cells.
Order - All living things are highly ordered. Organisms are comprised of many different kinds of cells, with each containing many complex molecular structures.
Sensitivity - All organisms respond to stimuli. Such as plants growing toward a source of light or your pupils dilating when you walk into a dark room.
Growth, Development, and Reproduction - All organisms are capable of growing and reproducing. All possess hereditary molecules that are passed to their offspring, ensuring that the offspring are of the same species.
Energy Utilization - All organisms take in energy and use it to perform many kinds of work. For example, every muscle in your body is powered with the energy you obtain from the food you eat.
Evolutionary Adaptation - All organisms interact with other organisms and the environment in ways that influence survival, and as a consequence, organisms evolve adaptations to their environments.
Homeostasis - All organisms maintain relatively constant internal conditions, different from their environment.
I’ve been to a lecture by Koshland (The one who came up with the key-lock enzyme-substrate mechanism).
He listed pretty much the same things, the nice thing is that the first letters create the name PICERAS (goddess of life)
P(rogram), I(mprovisation), C(ompartmentalization), E(nergy), R(egeneration), A(daptability) and S(eclusion).
What the heck is a wookie? Is it a famous immaginary creature like Coosie?
You need to watch more Dexter's laboratory. Cossie(scientifical name Koosalagupacup sp.) is Dee Dee's imaginary friend that actually exists
I'm forcing all of the cells of my brain to understand what you guys are talking about... Seems like I don't have much....
It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishment the scroll
I am the Master of my fate
I am the Captain of my soul.
Don't you have Cartoon Network in Turkey? Is it possible to live without Dexter's lab?
