Study Notes

Levels of Organization in Biology

  • Biologists study life at multiple levels, ranging from molecular biology to anatomy and physiology of organisms and evolution of populations.

Characteristics of Organisms

  • All organisms are composed of cells that process hereditary information encoded in genes, which can be transmitted to future generations.

The Scientific Method in Biology

  • Biologists use the scientific method to make observations, pose questions, generate hypotheses, perform experiments, and form conclusions about the world around them.

Origin of Life on Earth

  • Life on Earth emerged more than 3.7 billion years ago.

Classification of Life Forms

  • Biologists have sought to study and classify the various forms of life, including prokaryotic organisms (archaea and bacteria) and eukaryotic organisms (protists, fungi, plants, and animals).
