Kingdom Gallery Project Instructions Purpose: To demonstrate knowledge of the organization of organisms. Specifically to understand: Organisms carry out common life processes differently. All organisms and systems are organized from simple parts into complex systems that must maintain homeostasis in order to survive. The millions of different species of plants, animals, and microorganism that live on earth today are related by descent from common ancestors. The great diversity of organisms is the result of over 3.5 billion years of evolution that has filled every available niche with life forms. Modern classification systems are based upon biochemical and genetic evidence that indicates evolutionary relationships. Evolution explains the number of different life forms we see including similarities in anatomy and chemistry. Viruses are complex structures and their evolutionary relationship is still under investigation.
