BIO2.LS4: Biological Change: Unity and Diversity

BIO2.LS4.1: Use models of viruses, prokaryotes, and eukaryotes to ask questions about characteristics of living things and analyze theories regarding the origin of life on Earth. Construct an argument from evidence supporting the idea that eukaryotes could not exist on the planet if not for prokaryotes.

Cell Types
Virus Lytic Cycle

BIO2.LS4.2: Using information based on the geologic time scale and history of life on Earth, look for patterns in changes in organisms over time and explain how these patterns support the theory of evolution.

Human Evolution - Skull Analysis

BIO2.LS4.3: Use molecular data to construct cladograms depicting phylogenetic relationships between major groups of organisms.


BIO2.LS4.13: Interpret data supporting current plant classification schemes. Use a dichotomous key to identify plants based on variations in characteristics.

Dichotomous Keys

BIO2.LS4.23: Design and carry out an investigation examining how major body systems interact to maintain homeostasis of nutrient, energy, water, waste, and/or temperature balance.

Circulatory System
Digestive System

BIO2.LS4.24: Obtain and communicate information on how the nervous and endocrine systems in a model vertebrate organism coordinate body functions such as: growth and development; stimuli response and information transmission; and the maintenance of homeostasis.
