Levels of Organization For Life by Mind Map: Levels of Organization For Life

1. Atom-An atom is the smallest constituent unit of ordinary matter that has the properties of a chemical element. Every solid, liquid, gas, and plasma is composed of neutral or ionized atoms. Atoms are extremely small typical sizes are around 100 picometers.

2. Macromolecule-A macromolecule is a very large molecule, such as protein, commonly created by the polymerization of smaller subunits. They are typically composed of thousands of atoms or more. The most common macromolecules in biochemistry are biopolymers and large non-polymeric molecules.

3. Organelles-Organelle, any of the specialized structures within a cell that perform a specific function (e.g., mitochondria, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum). Organelles in unicellular organisms are the equivalent of organs in multicellular organisms.

4. Cell-the smallest structural and functional unit of an organism, typically microscopic and consisting of cytoplasm and a nucleus enclosed in a membrane. Microscopic organisms typically consist of a single cell, which is either eukaryotic or prokaryotic.

5. Tissue-any of the distinct types of material of which animals or plants are made, consisting of specialized cells and their products.

6. Organ-a part of an organism that is typically self-contained and has a specific vital function, such as the heart or liver in humans.

7. Organism-an individual animal, plant, or single-celled life form.-

8. population-a particular section, group, or type of people or animals living in an area or country

9. Ecosystem-a biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment.

10. Biome-a large naturally occurring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat, e.g. forest or tundra.

11. Biosphere-the regions of the surface, atmosphere, and hydrosphere of the earth (or analogous parts of other planets) occupied by living organisms.
