DE.6. Life Processes
6.1. Structure/Function Relationship
Enduring Understanding: Living systems, from the organismic to the cellular level, demonstrate the complementary nature of structure and function.
6.1.B. Living systems in all kingdoms demonstrate the complementary nature of structure and function. Important levels of organization for structure and function include cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and organisms. (Level: Important)
6.1.C. Most organisms are single celled while others are multi-cellular. Multi-cellular organisms consist of individual cells that cannot survive independently, while single-celled organisms are composed of one cell that can survive independently. (Level: Important)
