One of the central concepts in present biology is the recognition of different organization levels and their hierarchical array. Complex multicellular animals are constituted of organ systems, the organs of cells, the cells of organelles, membranes, and molecules. The primary effects of many environmental factors (e.g. light, concentrations of ions and molecules) can be delimited mainly to one level. Temperature, being the macroscopic physical measure of the random motion of smallest material… CONTINUE READING
