The vital functions in living things

 

Living matter is the one able to carry out the three so called vital functions:

1.- Nutrition, which consists of taking in matter and energy in order to grow, survive and reproduce; waste matter and waste energy are produced as by-products. If a living being feeds directly off other living beings (such as animals, fungi and protozoa) it is called heterotroph; but if it takes the matter and the energy that it needs from the inert matter (such as plants and algae) then it is an autotroph. Another way to express this difference is that consumers take in both organic and inorganic molecules, while the producers only feed on inorganic substances.

2.- Interaction is (a) the ability to perceive what is going on in both the environment and the inside of the organism itself, and (b) the ability to produce responses coherent with the information that was perceived. It usually goes as follows: an stimulus is perceived by a receptor → a control centre analyses the stimulus and generates a response order → an effector performs the response.

3.- Reproduction, the ability to produce living beings similar to the parental organisms. It may be asexual (when there is only one parental organism, as in bacteria) or sexual (when two different types of individuals, male and female, are required).

Every living being, and every cell in the multicellular living beings, is able to carry out these three vital functions.

OBJECTIVES

1. To identify the characteristics of living beings and differentiate them from inert matter.

2. To understand that living beings need to obtain energy to apply it in the carrying out of their vital functions.

3. To list the principal bio-molecules (immediate principles) and to distinguish those which are energetic from those which have a structural function.

4. To learn about cells and their components.

5. To value the importance of nutrition as the function responsible for obtaining the matter and energy required for staying alive.

6. To classify living beings in accordance with their form of nutrition (autotrophous beings and heterotrophous beings).

7. To differentiate between the two types of cell nutrition.

8.  To understand how cells obtain matter and energy.

9. To recognise the importance of photosynthesis.

10. To learn about cellular respiration and nutrition.

11. To learn about cellular division.

12. To use a microscope to observe cells.

13. To apply the knowledge acquired on energy to the student’s own diet, valuing the necessity of eating each one of the foods necessary for carrying out his or her activities.
