Living organisms Who are these living organisms, you ask? I have been writing a lot more about Biology stuff here at Smart Science Pro, than physics or Chemistry. If you have the time, I hope you have an understanding of living organisms.
Living organisms refer to things that are alive. These organisms perform various vital functions using vital factors. Carl Linnaeus was a pioneer in the introduction of a classification that could be used to classify all living organisms.
What’s Inside Life
According to the natural classifications of life, you will see three categories of living beings: animal and microscopic organisms. The basic unit is the structure and function of all living organisms. It is also known by the name cell.
A collection of cells is what we refer to as tissue. Tissues exist in all multicellular animals. Tissues form many organs, including eyes. These organs create the different body systems. From a tiny cell to an entire body system, energy is essential for its survival, functions and growth.
Vital factors are vital for the production of energy that is necessary to support living organisms. Let me give you an example of each vital factor so that you can understand them better.
#4 Vital Factors Essential For Life
I am asking you to tell me what the 4 most important factors are. If you already know the four vital factors, that’s great. Are you able to make a picnic with them? Ya! I’m sure you have more time for such exciting journeys than what you spend on schoolwork.
I vividly remember the first time that I visited a Zoo. The Zoo is home to wild animals that you cannot see in the concrete jungle. It is not necessary to travel to a Zoo in order to see the animals that live in our environment. You can simply visit a pond and fish tank. Look up at the treetops for some bird-watching opportunities.
All of these animals need these vital factors in order to survive.
Air is a vital factor
Under the classification of natural animals, turtles fall under the vertebrates group. You may have seen turtles in your pond, or at the Zoo. After swimming under the water for a while, turtles swim out of the water. The turtles then swim again under the water and follow the same process continuously.
What was it that caused turtles to behave this way? Actually, you already know the answer. If the water is less than enough to support their respiration, then turtles can be pulled out of the seawater.
There are many people who sell innocent, small chickens. These chickens are kept within small round holes boxes. Also, you may have noticed that the square holes on dog transport boxes are not uncommon. All these holes are needed to ensure animals have enough air to carry out their vital activities.
Because mountain climbers and divers want to be fancy, they need to wear special suits. This is why they have oxygen cylinders.
These are just some examples of the vitality of air in animal life. But how about plants?
While you may have heard a lot over the course of your life, have any of you ever heard about plants growing on the moon? Nope! This is not because moon doesn’t like growing plants. Moon’s atmosphere lacks oxygen and is therefore not conducive to the survival of life.
All these facts support the Air as an essential factor for all living things.
