Study Notes

Biological Levels of Organization

  • Atom: the building block of matter, making up all material in the universe
  • Molecule: a group of atoms, including macromolecules like carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids
  • Cell organelles: components that make up cells
  • Cell: the basic structural and functional unit of life
  • Tissue: a group of similar cells
  • Organ: a group of tissues that perform a specific function
  • System of organs: a group of organs that work together to maintain homeostasis
  • Organism: an individual living thing
  • Population: a group of the same species living in the same geographical area
  • Community/Biocenoses: a group of different species living together
  • Ecosystem: the interaction between organisms and their environment
  • Bioma: a region classified based on the species that inhabit it

Branches of Biology

  • Taxonomy: the study of naming and classifying organisms, developed by Carl Linnaeus, using binomial nomenclature
  • Cytology: the study of cells
  • Embryology: the study of the formation and development of organisms
  • Anatomy: the study of body parts and structures
  • Physiology: the study of the functions of organisms and their parts
  • Biochemistry: the study of the biological composition of living things
  • Genetics: the study of heredity and variation
  • Evolution: the study of the origin of organisms
  • Ecology: the study of the relationship between organisms and their environment

Theories of the Origin of Life

  • Divine theory of creation: the belief that life was created by a higher power
  • Si Malakas, at si Maganda (no further information provided)
