Nutrition : How an organism gets food (nutrients, organic compounds ) and makes it available to the cells. Nutrients : useful portion of food: -sugar -amino acid -fat -starch Organic Compounds = FOOD!!!!!!

2 TYPES OF NUTRITION 1. Autotrophic nutrition Auto (self) trophic (refers to feeding and nutrition) “Self feeding.” -Organisms that make their own organic compounds ex. Photo synthesis Chemo synthesis

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
