Characteristics of Life
To be delegated a living thing, a protest must have each of the six of the accompanying qualities:
1.It responds to the environment.
2.It grows and develops.
3.It produces offspring.
4.It maintains homeostasis.
5.It has complex chemistry.
6.It consists of cells.
Growth and Development
All living things grow and develop. For example, a plant seed may look like a lifeless pebble, but under the right conditions it will grow and develop into a plant.
Reproduction is the process by which living things give rise to offspring. Reproducing may be as simple as a single cell dividing to form two daughter cells. Generally, however, it is much more complicated.
A cell is the basic unit of the structure and function of living things. Living things may seem altogether different from each other outwardly, however their cells are fundamentally the same as.
1.All living things detect changes in their environment and respond to them.
2.All living things grow and develop.
3.All living things are capable of reproduction, the process by which living things give rise to offspring.
4.All living things are able to maintain a constant internal environment through homeostasis.
5.All living things have complex chemistry.
6.All forms of life are built of cells. A cell is the basic unit of the structure and function of living things.
