Dowsett/Science Photo Library/Photo Researchers, Inc. air, or water. Responding to stimuli involves movement, though not always locomotion (moving from one place to another).

1-1). In contrast, the body of a cat or a maple tree is made of billions of cells. In such complex multicellular organisms, life processes depend on the coordinated functions of component cells that may be organized to form tissues, organs, and organ systems. Every cell is enveloped by a protective plasma membrane that separates it from the surrounding external environment. The plasma membrane regulates passage of materials between cell and environment. Cells have specialized molecules that cells are structurally simpler: They do not have a nucleus or other membrane-enclosed organelles.

Sponges, corals, and oysters have free-swimming larval stages but do not move from place to place as adults. Even though these adults are sessile, meaning they remain firmly attached to a surface, they may have cilia or flagella. These structures beat rhythmically, moving the surrounding water, which contains needed food and oxygen. In complex animals such as polar bears and humans, certain highly specialized cells of the body respond to specific types of stimuli. For example, cells in the retina of the eye respond to light.
