1 - The passage of traits from parents to offspring can be simple or complex.
2 - In eukaryotes, heritable information is passed to the next generation via processes that include the cell cycle.
3 - Heritable information provides for continuity of life. - DNA, and in some cases RNA, is the primary source of heritable information.
4 – Heterotrophs capture free energy present in carbon compounds produced by other organisms. Autotrophs capture free energy from physical sources in the environment.
