Although periods of prolonged cold (ice ages) have been interspersed with eons of global warmth, at no time have conditions deviated from the range necessary for life. Lovelock and his supporters propose (a) (b) (c) FIGURE 1-7 Examples of regulators, avoiders, and conformers. (a) Regulator: a capuchin monkey’s internal body temperature is relatively constant regardless of environment; (b) Avoider: monarch butterflies migrate in the autumn from freezing northern habitats to warm southern habitats to avoid extreme body temperatures.

It has a certain volume and mass, and a certain surface area of its outer boundary (Figure 1-4). From simple mathematics, we know the volume is related to the cube of the radius of the object. The surface area is related to the square of the radius. Now consider a cell (or organism) 10 times bigger (see Figure 1-4). Because of the cubed factor, the volume of it is 1,000 (103) times bigger than the first object, but because of the squared factor, the surface area is only 100 times (102) bigger. Its surface-area-to-volume ratio is one tenth that of the smaller sphere.

1. 2 Describe the hypothetico-deductive method. 3 Levels of Organization in Organisms One triumph of scientific study in the 19th century was the development of the cell theory of life. Regardless of the difficulties in defining “life,” the foundation of all functions of life, and thus of all living organisms, is the cell—the smallest unit capable of carrying out the processes associated with life on Earth. A cell consists of an outer barrier called a membrane and an internal (semigelatinous) fluid called the cytosol, which contains water, salts, small organic molecules, and macromolecules.
