During this time I am burning up valuable nutrient for me to function properly, I must replenish these nutrients by eating food which provides my body with energy. When I touch something to hot a signal travels though nerve ending to the brain to move that body part away from the hot surface. Reproducing, Growth and Development and adaptation all are related. For an organism to be considered an organism it must be able to reproduce off springs. Once the organism produces an off spring that off spring grows and develops skill that it learns the time it was an egg to the time it dies. Some of these skills an offspring acquires are how to adapt to its environment.
