3. What is homeostasis? Explain how your body maintains homeostasis in the cold and in the heat.
4. Which domains include mainly prokaryotic organisms? Which domains include mainly eukaryotic organisms?
5. What is metabolism?
6. Explain how a scientific name is written using binomial nomenclature.
7. What is the difference in prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms?
8. What is carrying capacity? Name 5 ways a population’s carrying capacity would decrease.
