The metabolic energy we are presently using left the sun a few weeks-years ago in the form of photons and will shortly radiate back to space as heat. Given that our material composition and our energy are both transient, what do we, or any other living organisms, actually represent in a scientific sense? A living entity…. contains heritable genetic information (genome) Organisms are an expressed manifestation of the information contained within their genomes. Interspecific Interaction Relationships between species of a community. An overview of energy and nutrient dynamics in an ecosystem. Familiar herbivores include deer, cattle and other large mammals....
