Allocate the following most important functions of living matter on the planet: energy, gas, concentration, redox. The energy function is realized primarily by green plants. The main supplier of energy to the biosphere is the Sun. The gas function is the constant gas exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between living organisms and the environment during photosynthesis and respiration. The redox function is the variety of chemical reactions that occur in the body during its life. Concentration function – the selective accumulation by a living substance of chemical elements scattered in the environment. For example, the shells of diatoms, animal skeletons, mollusk shells – all these are manifestations of the concentration function of living matter.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
