8 Two ways to see the big picture of life. Lines in such diagrams indicate evolutionary connections. 6. is useful but it is not universally applicable. For example, not all populations of a species actually continue to interbreed. In many cases, we may never know whether populations separated by a great distance could interbreed successfully even if they did get together. Also, populations often continue to interbreed even as they become different, so the exact moment at which they become separate species is often impossible to pinpoint.
The biosphere includes all regions of Earth that hold life. 3 Life has underlying unity in that all living things have similar characteristics. (1) All organisms require energy and nutrients to sustain themselves: producers harvest energy from the environment to make their own food by processes such as photosynthesis; consumers eat other organisms, or their wastes and remains. (2) Organisms keep the conditions in their internal environment within ranges that their cells tolerate—a process called homeostasis.
