Study Notes

Unifying Themes in Biology

  • Evolution is a unifying theme in biology, as it explains the diversity of life on Earth
  • Unity and diversity are also unifying themes, as they describe the similarities and differences among organisms

Molecular Biology

  • Biologists study the molecular biology of a cell at the molecular level of organization
  • Genes, found at the molecular level, carry information needed to build and maintain an organism

Organisms

  • The text mentions archaea, bacteria, protists, fungi, plants, and animals as groups of organisms
  • Viruses are not considered a group of organisms in the classical sense

Biological Processes

  • The fundamental process that allows organisms to move, grow, and reproduce is metabolism
  • Metabolism involves the conversion of energy and the synthesis of new molecules
