Questions to answer:

  1. Explain the relationship between an organism’s anatomy and its physiology.
  2. How is  the physiology of a unicellular prokaryote different from a unicellular eukaryote?
  3. How is the physiology of a unicellular organism different from a multicellular organism?
  4. How does the complexity of an organism’s physiology depend upon the diversity of the types of cells present in that organism.
  5. Why are fungi “physiologically boring”?
  6. Diagram the structure of a typical plant.  Label systems,  and organs, and explain the main functions of each.
  7. How is an animal like a donut?  How is it different?  Might not be a bad idea to draw a typical animal “donut” diagram and label it (but you don’t have to).
