There are seven things that all living organisms do- these are called life processes. An organism is only alive if it does all seven life processes.   

The life processes can be memorised with the acronym MRS NERG:

  • Reproduction- Producing offspring 
  • Sensitivity- Responding and reacting  
  • Nutrition- Getting food 
  • Excretion- Getting rid of waste 
  • Respiration*- Turning good into energy
