Clues

  • Removal from organisms of toxic materials, the waste products of metabolism (chemical reactions in cells) and substances in excess of requirements. (9)
  • Taking in of nutrients, which are organic substances and mineral ions containing raw materials or energy, for growth and tissue repair, absorbing and assimilating them. (9)
  • The ability to detect or sense changes in the enviroment (stimuli) and to make responses. (11)
  • The action by an organism or part of an organism causing in a change in position or place. (8)
  • The chemical reaction that breaks down nutrient molecules in living cells to release energy. (11)
  • The permanent increase in the size and dry mass by an increase in cell number or cell size or both. (6)
  • The process that makes more of the same kind of organism. (12)
