Amoeba live in freshwater Constantly changing shape in response to stimuli Use pseudopodium (false feet) for movement and feeding Cytoplasm is 2 layers, inner (endoplasm) and outer (ectoplasm) Pseudopodia also used for eating, surrounding food (phagocytosis), packaging it in a food vacuole and digests it with lysozyme (lysosome enzyme)  Exchange of substances through plasma membrane Os moregul a ti on by diffusion –  Water goes into the cell by osmosis and fills the Regul a te wa ter contractile vacuole, when full, blows out the water from time to time(osmoregulation)  Amoeba sp. reproduces by binary fission, but produces spores when cannot do binary fission MULTICELLULAR 1. Cells grow, change shape and differentiate in multicellular organisms. 2. Mature cells carry out different functions, like different medical specialists are experts in their field, like a cardiologist in the heart, the neurologist in the brain, etc. 3. They undergo specialization to carry out their functions more efficiently. 4. Organisation is in this form:

Centrioles (animal cell) Chloroplasts

Several organs that contribute to one section of an organism’s functions (circulatory. leaf. Example: The skin:  Consists of various tissues joined together  2 main layers. root and flower. bud.Cell Tissue Organ System Multicellular Organism 5. 6. 8. This is governed by the negative feedback mechanism . blood vessels. brain etc. sclerenchyma)  Vascular tissue ( xylem tissue. muscular) are grouped into a system. Leaf for photosynthesis. These are called organs. provide support and protection) . control and coordiante body activities) . Homeostasis is maintenance of constant internal environment for optimal cell performance. Several systems make up an organism. collenchyma. Physical factors include temperature. Flowers for pollination. Systems are root and shoot systems.neurons →dendrites and axons tissues protection. which constantly divides  Dermis is made of connective. ANIMALS There are 4 main types of tissue in an animal: PLANTS Two main types of tissue in plants:  Meristematic tissue o Consists of small cells with thin walls. heart.Blood Fat cells Nerve tissues (transmit nerve impulses. epithelial and muscle tissue  Blood is supplied through blood capillary network  Nerve endings are scattered throughout the skin. flower and fruit. Stem.Cartilage . phloem tissue)   Organs in plants are leaf. Different tissues that carry out a function are grouped into an organ. located at root tips and shoot buds  Permanent tissue o Differentiated/partly differentiated mature tissues o Three types of permanent tissue :  Epidermal tissue  Ground tissue (parenchyma.Tendons -Ligaments . o Shoot system – stem. secretion and absorption ⇝Smooth muscle (intestine. the epidermis and the dermis  Epidermis is made of epithelial tissue. 7. large nuclei. transmit impulses to nervous system  Epithelial cells produce hair follicles. Examples are lungs. stem. Any change in the internal environment will cause homeostasis to kick in and work to cancel the change. Chemical factors include pH. Cells that carry out a function are grouped into tissues. Tissues in animals Muscle tissues (movement) Epithelial Connective tissues (bind structure. . branch for support system. urinary and reproductive tract) ⇝ Skeletal muscle (arms and legs)    ⇝ Cardiac muscle (heart walls) Tissues work together to perform a specific function. o Root system – all plant roots. interstitial fluid and lymph. blood pressure and osmotic pressure . kidneys.

Simple diffusion The movement of particles (molecules or solutes) within a gas or a liquid from a region of high concentration to a region of lower concentration.K.E. facilitated and simple AT diffusion) Does not require energy Require energy from cell respiration Substances move with concentration Substances move against concentration gradient gradient Will continue until an equilibrium is Process leads to accumulation or reached elimination of the substance from the cell Wa ter molecules can move across pl a sma membrane.
