Microbes
Fungi largest and most complex can form larger organisms. Bacteria generally smaller than fungi but larger than viruses. Viruses have outer jelly coat. Smallest and non living. Require other living host cells to carry out life processes
2 of 5
Photosynthesis
Carbon dioxide + water = Glucose + Oxygen
3 of 5
Enzymes
Biological catalysts. Digestive enzymes are amylase which works on carbohydrates/starch, Lipase which works on lipids, Protease which works on proteins and pepsin which also acts on protein.
