Biology is the study of life

Hey Kangaroos and diamonds,

Today I will be talking about biology and the introductory factors into biology. Over the next few weeks, I will be delivering a set of biology notes. Even if it helps one person that will be enough. I will be taking my notes from various sources including “Visual Anatomy and Physiology” by Martini, Ober and Nath.

Biology is the study of life and all living things perform the same basic functions. Biologists for hundreds of years have studied life and its functions.

These functions are;

  1. Responsiveness
  2. Adaptability
  3. Growth and reproduction
  4. Respiration
  5. Circulation
  6. Digestion
  7. Excretion

Responsiveness, adaptability, growth and reproduction all use energy. This energy must be replaced otherwise the cells die. All organisms responds to changes in their environment and show adaptability to change. Most organisms have an internal system that transports materials around the body. They grow and reproduce and use movement to get around. Without this the organism dies.
