What are the characteristics of organisms?
1 of 58
Movement characteristic?
action of muscles in animals & growth in plants
2 of 58
Respiration characteristic?
get energy from food
3 of 58
Sensitivity characteristic?
sensitive to changes in surroundings
4 of 58
Control characteristic?
of internal conditions (of body)
5 of 58
Nutrition characteristic?
Make own food (plants) or eat other organisms (animals)
6 of 58
Excretion characteristic?
Get rid of toxic waste products
7 of 58
Reproduction characteristic?
production of offspring
8 of 58
Growth characteristic?
irreversible increase in size and mass using material from food
9 of 58
Two examples of excretion?
Removing CO2 when breathing out/ urinating
10 of 58
What is NOT excretion?
Getting rid of faeces
11 of 58
All living organisms are composed of ---------?
12 of 58
Simplest organisms, made of one cell are --------?
13 of 58
Complex organisms, made of millions of diff. cells are ---------?
14 of 58
Functions of the nucleus?
controls activity of cell/ chromosomes=genes (determine proteins made) / largest organelle
15 of 58
Where is the nucleus found?
In both animal and plant cells
16 of 58
Cell membrane functions?
controls substances in and out of cell/ partially permeable/ fat soluoble substances pass more easily through that water soluble
17 of 58
Where is cell membrane found?
Animal and plant cells
18 of 58
Cytoplasm functions?
ENzymes (control chemical reactions in cell) / jelly texture
19 of 58
Where is cytoplasm found?
animal and plant cells
20 of 58
Mitochondria functions?
carry out respirations/most energy from respiration released in Mitochondrion/ found in energy cells in cytoplasm e/g muscle
21 of 58
Where are mitochondria found?
Plant and animal cells.
22 of 58
Cellulose cell wall functions?
Supports plant cell-gives fairly fixed shape/ freely permiable
23 of 58
Where is cell wall found?
In plant cells
24 of 58
Large permanent vacuole functions?
Central space containing cell sap
25 of 58
What is cell sap made of?
Watery liquid containing sugars and mineral ions
26 of 58
Where is vacuole found?
Plant cells
27 of 58
Chloroplast functions?
COntains chlorophyll-absorbs light energy so plant makes glucose in photosynthesis
28 of 58
Where are chloroplasts found?
In plant cells
29 of 58
What are specialised cells?
As we develop cells become specialised to carry out one particular function
30 of 58
Examples of specialised cells?
Nerve cells /muscle cells/ leaf palisade cells
31 of 58
Tissues in humans?
32 of 58
Muscle tissue
contracts and relaxes to bring about movement
33 of 58
Skeletal tissue
Provides support, 'movement', structure and protection
34 of 58
Connective tissue
Binds and connects tissues
35 of 58
Vascular tissue
carries oxygen and foodstuff around the body
36 of 58
Epithelial tissue
Lines tubes and spaces in body
37 of 58
Nervous tissue
transmits and co-ordinates information
38 of 58
What to gathered cells form
39 of 58
Tissues gathered together make.....?
40 of 58
Organs gathered together make......?
organ systems
41 of 58
Systems in humans?
42 of 58
Digestive system
Passes food through body and processes it
43 of 58
organs in digestive system
stomahc, intestives,pancreas,liver
44 of 58
Respiratory system?
Exchanges oxygen and CO2
45 of 58
Organs in respiratory system?
46 of 58
Circulatory system?
transports materials around body
47 of 58
Endocrine system?
Produces and spreads away hormones/ chemical messenger
48 of 58
Nervous system?
Co-ordinates body actions
49 of 58
Excretory system?
Filters toxic waste materials from blood
50 of 58
REproduction system?
allowing development of embyo
51 of 58
organs in circulatory system?
heart, blood and blood vessels
