Summarize the importance of information transfer within and between living systems, giving specific examples.

Summary Introduction

To summarize: The importance of information transfer within and between the living systems by giving specific examples.

Concept introduction: Evolution is completely dependent on information transmission between the living systems. All organisms receive and send information to the surrounding environment. The survival of any organism depends on the information transmission at the levels of organization.

Explanation of Solution

Importance of information transmission:

All biology systems send and receive information. This information transmission occurs at all levels of organization. Information transmission is required for growth, development, metabolism, locomotion, responding to stimuli, and reproduction. Thus, for a living organism, to express its characteristic features to be a living organism, information transmission is required. Therefore, the information transmission is important.

Example of information transmission:

The information is transmitted in the form of chemical molecules and electrical impulses...
