1. Biology: the study of life
2. Biosphere: all the parts of the planet that are inhabited by living things; sum of all Earth’s ecosystems.
3. Chemistry: the science of matter and its interactions with energy and itself.
4. Ecosystem: community of living things plus the nonliving features of the environment that support them.
5. Organism: living thing
6. Cell: basic unit of living matter; separated from its environment by a plasma membrane.
7. DNA: molecule responsible for inheritance; nucleic acid that contains the sugar deoxyribose.
8. Gene: unit of inherited information in DNA
9. Species: distinct form of life.
10. Domain: broadest category used to classify life forms.
11. Unicellular: consisting of a single cell.
12. Prokaryotic: having cells that lack membrane-bound nuclei
13. Eukaryotic: a single-celled or multicellular organism whose cells contain a distinct membrane-bound nucleus.
14. Multicellular: consisting of many cells
15. System : complex organization formed from a simpler combination.
16. Photosynthesis: process by which plants use the sun’s energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars.
17. Producer: organism that makes its own food (autotrophy) and produces organic molecules that serve food for other organisms in its ecosystem.
18. Consumer: organism that obtains food by eating producers (autotrophs) or other consumers.
19. Homeostasis: internal stability or “steady state” maintained by the body.
20. Adaptation: inherited characteristics that improves an organism’s ability to survive and reproduce in a particular environment.
21. Population: group of individuals of the same species living in a particular area at the same time.
22. Natural selection: process by which individuals with inherited characteristics well- suited to the environment leave more offspring than do other individuals.
23. Evolution: generation-to-generation change in the proportion of different inherited genes in a population that accounts for all of the changes that have transformed life over an immense time.
24. Cellular organization:
25. Heredity: the genetic transmission of characteristics from parent to offspring.
26. Metabolism: all of a cell’s chemical processes.
27. Anabolism: the phase of metabolism in which simple substances are synthesized into the complex materials of living things.
28. Catabolism: the metabolic breakdown of complex molecules into simpler ones, often resulting in a release of energy.
29. Reproduction: the sexual or asexual process by which organisms generate new individuals of the same kind, procreation.
30. Life: an organismic state characterized by capacity for metabolism, growth, reaction to stimuli, and reproduction.

We are volunteers; we log in when we can, there's no use posting 5 times in a row. And sorry, we can't do homework for you, it's your homework.

However, let me recommend you to your friend the search engine. Try yahoo, or google thusly

Perfectly right. Though we can give it a quick check, and your answers look more or less OK to me (I wouldnot phrase some of them as they are, but I am not a native english speaker...

You can also try to use the define function of Google by typing "define:cellular organization" The only result I got from this one does not link to a definition, but you should probably be able to figure it out of the web page :wink:

Cheers

Dave (Mithrilhack) is right. This is the main principle here. Please try to be patient if you want to get answers. And why don't you try to search that and ask if something is not clear?
