What are the 7 life processes?

The 7 life processes are respiration, nutrition, excretion, secretion, transportation, response and reproduction.

Define nutrition.

Nutrition is the process by which organisms obtain energy and nutrients from food.

What is the purpose of respiration?

The purpose of respiration is to release energy from food molecules.

What is excretion?

Excretion is the process by which waste products of metabolism are eliminated from the body.

What is secretion?

Secretion is the process by which cells produce and release substances.

What is transportation?

Transportation is the movement of substances throughout an organism.

What is response?

Response is the ability of organisms to react to stimuli in their environment.

What is reproduction?

Reproduction is the process by which organisms give rise to offspring.

What is the difference between aerobic and anaerobic respiration?

Aerobic respiration requires oxygen to release energy from food molecules, while anaerobic respiration does not require oxygen.

What is the difference between ingestion and digestion?

Ingestion is the process of taking in food, while digestion is the process of breaking down food into smaller molecules that can be absorbed by the body.

What is the function of the circulatory system?

The function of the circulatory system is to transport oxygen, nutrients, hormones, and waste products throughout the body.

What is the difference between excretion and egestion?

Excretion is the elimination of waste products of metabolism, while egestion is the elimination of undigested food.

What is the purpose of the nervous system?

The purpose of the nervous system is to coordinate the activities of the body and respond to internal and external stimuli.

What are the two types of response?

The two types of response are voluntary and involuntary.

What is the difference between sexual and asexual reproduction?

Sexual reproduction involves the fusion of gametes from two parents, while asexual reproduction involves the production of offspring from a single parent.
