  • Complex Systems
    • Living things require...
      • Energy: the chemical process that govern this results in metabolism
      • Growth, Development and Reproduction: life is often considered to be mainly cellular
      • Respond to their surroundings: behavioral, whole organism, physically, genetic/ gene expression.
      • Evolve: individual within a species are variable, variation is heritable, survival and reproduction are not random
    • Steps of Evolution: Prokaryotic to Eukaryotic Cell.
      • 1. simple prokaryote, Cytoskeleton starts to develop
      • 2. increase in size and membrane flexibility
      • 3. Internal membranes form.
      • 4. Organelles acquired by separate endosymbosis events
