2 types of reproduction

sexul and Asexual

Sexual reproduction

a new organism is formed from a singe parent

Unicellular organisms grow and develop how?

grow in size

Multicellular organisms grow and develop how?

grow in size and shape, initial cell replicates and eventually differentiates


what everything needs to maintain life and grow


the break down or build up of materials to carry out life process

The sun

is the ultimate source of energy for everything


signal that brings response, internal and external (shivering when cold, sweating when hot)


The process of keeping internal conditions the same

the 2 types of Evolution

Macro and Micro

Micro Evolution

Grow as a population, each generation differs

The genetic code

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)


The part of the earth that contains all ecosystems

0.2 micrometer

What is the most a Electron Microscope can magnify?


What is more detailed than a light microscope?

Electron Microscope

What are the 2 types of Electron Microscopes?

Transmission Electron Microscope, Scanning Electron Microscope

Transmission Electron Microscope

Beams electrons through the specimen and produces a flat image

Scanning Electron Microscope

Beams electrons back and forth across the surface, and creates a 3D image


Contains a magnifying lens


Supports the body tube


Supports the slide being observed

Fine adjustment knob

Moves the body tube slightly to sharpen the image

Coarse adjustment knob

Moves the body tube to sharpen the image


supports the microscope


Produces light or reflects light up two toward the eyepiece

Stage Clips

hold the slide in place

Low-Power Objective

Provides a magnification of 10x and is the shortest objective

High-Power Objective

Provides a magnification of 40x and is the longest objective

Nose piece

Holds the objectives and can be rotated to change the magnification
