Flashcard Content Overview

While it may be pretty simple to sort your laundry, the job of sorting living organisms is much more complex! Use these flashcards to learn the basics of classifying living organisms. In addition to this, these cards will provide a foundation for the characteristics of living things and the life cycle of various organisms.

Essential Element
This is the term used to describe an element that is vital to an organisms survival.
Hydroponic Culture
This term describes the method of growing plants in a mineral rich water base without soil. This is one way scientists can determine if an element is essential or not.
Macronutrient
This term refers to a substance that is needed in large amounts for an organism to thrive. For plants, these substances are essential elements.
Name the nine macronutrients needed for a plant's growth and development.
The nine macronutrients plants need are carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and sulfur.
Micronutrient
This term refers to a substance that is needed in small (or trace) amounts for an organism to thrive.
Name the eight micronutrients needed for a plant's growth and development.
The eight micronutrients plants need are boron, chlorine, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, and zinc.
Invertebrates
This term refers to organisms without a backbone. Examples include jellyfish, octopus, and worms.
Vertebrates
This term refers to organisms with a backbone. Examples include humans, sharks, and birds.
Embryonic Development
This term refers to the stage of an organism that takes place prior to it being born.
Molt
This term refers to the shedding of skin that is seen in some invertebrates.
Name the four stages in the invertebrate life cycle.
The four stages of the invertebrate life cycle are egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Please note, not all invertebrates have a larva and pupa stage.
Label these organisms as biotic or abiotic.
Animals are an example of biotic organisms, as they are living things.
Name the part of plant's life cycle pictured.
The seedling stage is pictured.
Life Span
The time in which a living thing completes its full life cycle. This time varies greatly depending on the organism.
Inorganic
A substance that does not contain hydrocarbons (carbon molecules that have bonded to hydrogen). There be over 50 inorganic substances that can be essential for plant life.
