Organic Information

In biology, an organism is any living system . In at least some form, all organisms are capable of response to stimuli, reproduction, growth and development, and maintenance of homeostasis as a stable whole. An organism may either be unicellular or be composed of, as in humans, many billions of cells grouped into specialized tissues and organs. The term multicellular describes any organism made up of more than one cell.

The term "organism" first appeared in the English language in 1701 and took on its current definition by 1834 .

Scientific classification in biology considers organisms synonymous with life on Earth. Based on cell type, organisms may be divided into the prokaryotic and eukaryotic groups. The prokaryotes represent two separate domains, the Bacteria and Archaea. Eukaryotic organisms, with a membrane-bounded cell nucleus, also contain organelles, namely mitochondria and plastids, generally considered to be derived from endosymbiotic bacteria.Fungi, animals and plants are examples of species that are eukaryotes.
