Sample text

The faster water enters, the greater the rate of formation of contractile vacuoles. Cells in multicellular organisms also use negative feedback mechanisms. They are able to maintain a concentration gradient of ions across the cell membrane, an active process that, in mammals at least, is estimated to use about half of the ATP (adenosine triphosphate, see p. 46) the organism produces from respiration. 4 Draw and annotate the feedback loop for the amoeba. During the time it takes for a contractile vacuole to form and ultimately empty, draw two sketch graphs showing: • the amount of water in the cell; • the size of the contractile vacuole.

The long-term consequences of this are populations that remain at fairly constant levels. Competition occurs for resources, and individuals able to compete best can self-maintain and survive. • At the ecosystem level there is evidence that, during the Earth’s history, levels of substances, such as carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, have fluctuated within certain limits. Interactions in the ecosystem occur, involving living organisms and their surroundings, that result in the maintenance of fairly constant conditions.

5 A conclusion is reached as to whether or not the hypothesis is valid. 6 If not, then a re-test is carried out to check a revised hypothesis. It is important to emphasise that it is a method and not the method, since it must, of necessity, be flexible. Not all of these stages will be carried out by all scientists when solving practical problems. However, this is a model of science as a way of working that has been adopted by Sc1. The procedure (or ‘method’) is often shown as a cyclical one, since testing ideas and collecting evidence does not always lead to an acceptable or clear-cut solution.
