At the upper left we take a distant view of the biosphere, all of the environments on Earth that support life. These include most regions of land, bodies of water, and the lower atmosphere.

The leaflike appearance of this katydid camouflages it in its environment. Such adaptations evolve over many generations as individuals with traits best suited to their environment have greater reproductive success and pass their traits to offspring. 1 reminds us that the living world is wondrously varied. How do biologists make sense of this diversity and complexity, and how can you? Indeed, biology is a subject of enormous scope that gets bigger every year. One of the ways to help you organize all this information is to connect what you learn to a set of themes that you will encounter throughout your study of life.

Most prokaryotes are singlecelled and microscopic. The photos of the prokaryotes in Figure To which of the three domains of life do we belong? ● Eukarya ? 6 were made with an electron microscope, and the number along the side indicates the magnification of the image. ) Bacteria and archaea were once combined in a single kingdom. But much evidence indicates that they represent two very distinct branches of life, each of which includes multiple kingdoms. Bacteria are the most diverse and widespread prokaryotes.
