What are structures that perform different functions in the cell?
Organelles are specialized structures that perform various jobs inside cells. The term literally means “little organs.” In the same way organs, such as the heart, liver, stomach, and kidneys, serve specific functions to keep an organism alive, organelles serve specific functions to keep a cell alive.
Which structures of this organism work together to carry out all of its life functions?
Its one cell performs all of the life functions of the organism. In contrast, a multicellular organism has many cells. Each cell does not perform every life function on its own. Instead, the cells work together to carry out the life functions of the organism.
What is a group of similar cells that work together to carry out a specific task?
Tissues are groups of similar cells that have a common function. An organ is a structure that is composed of at least two or more tissue types and performs a specific set of functions for the body. Many organs working together to accomplish a common purpose is called an organ system.
What are an organism’s functions?
An organism is defined as any neighboring living system which is to be alive and performs various functions like growth, movement, reproduction, respiration, nutrition and excretion. All organisms are made up of one or more cells.
What is a group of similar cells working together called quizlet?
A tissue is a group of cells with a similar structure and function working together. An organ is made up of different types of tissues.
What are different tissues that perform a task?
Types of tissues. As we saw above, every organ is made up of two or more tissues, groups of similar cells that work together to perform a specific task. Humans—and other large multicellular animals—are made up of four basic tissue types: epithelial tissue, connective tissue, muscle tissue, and nervous tissue.
How are all organisms perform the same functions?
All organisms have many of the same basic needs and perform the same functions such as eating, drinking, and reproducing. In this lesson, we’ll look at how different organisms accomplish these tasks with different structures that in the end lead to the same result. Updated: 03/22/2021
Why are structures specialized to a specific organism?
This is because different organisms have developed unique structures that perform these functions and that do so in ways that fit their specific environments. So in this case, the structures are specialized to perform a specific function but also to fit the needs of a specific organism. Let’s look at some examples to see what’s going on here.
Why are some functions performed by different structures?
When we look at different organisms, we often see that many of the same functions, such as breathing, eating, and movement, are performed by structures that are not the same. This is because different organisms have developed unique structures that perform these functions and that do so in ways that fit their specific environments.
Why do some organisms have more elaborate structures than others?
Some animals have elaborate reproductive structures while others are quite minimal. Plants reproduce as well, though because they can’t move around, they depend on other organisms to help them. These structures are designed to attract pollinators that help facilitate reproduction. Many organisms have structures that help them move around.
