All characteristics are a result of an organisms ordered structure
Organisms will reproduce their own kind; life comes from life(having children/offspring makes life)
Growth & Development
DNA directs the pattern of growth and development, producing an organism that is characteristic of its species (you get bigger as you get older)
Organisms take in energy though various methods and make it usable (without foodour bodies would not function properly; The chemical energy inside our foodstores into our own bodies)
Response to the Environment
Organisms will respond to stimuli (stimuli triggers special responses due to that environment for exp: The Venus flytrap ate the fly due to the fly landing on it).
An organisms internal environment is regulated by mechanisms to cope with an imbalance . (So if it’s hotor cold. Our bodies would naturally regulate the blood inside of us to sustain our lives from ending).
- Organisms will evolve due to changes in environment and interaction with other organisms(for example camouflage. This adaption doesn’t happy quickly it takes thousands and millions of years for the process of this adaption to be complete.
