Living thing - Biology-Online Dictionary Home » Living thing Definition noun Any organism or a living form that possesses or shows the characteristics of life or being alive Supplement Living things are those that display the following characteristics What are the 7 life processes of plants? Although plants do not move from one location to another like animals and humans, they do exhibit movement in ways that promote their growth and survival. One example of this is phototropism, which is the movement of a plant towards sunlight to capture nutrients for the process of photosynthesis. Plants are able to sense things in their environments, including danger, and they are able to send out natural pesticides to nearby plants that are afflicted with harmful pests. Plants obtain nutrition through the process of photosynthesis. Specialized parts of the plant, such as its roots, enable it to absorb nutrition from the soil in which it rests. While animals excrete solid and liquid wastes, plants secrete gases and liquid.

Life Processes and Cell Activity Biology is the study of life and all living organisms, so we must be clear about the difference between living and non living "things". All living organisms have the potential to carry out 7 basic processes, i.e. special actions which may be called the characteristics of life. These processes are universal, but when you consider the fine details you will see that they are carried out in somewhat different ways by animals and plants, although Biologists now classify living organisms into more than 2 kingdoms. Biology may be broken down into the study of animals - Zoology - and the study of plants - Botany. However, all living organisms depend on one another, and that definitely includes Man as well, so Biology deserves to be studied as an all-embracing subject.
