      ACSCH065 - Molecular interactions and reactions - Aqueous solutions and acidity - The solubility of substances in water, including ionic and molecular substances, can be explained by the intermolecular forces between species in the substances and water molecules, and is affected by changes in temperature

      ACSBL111 - Maintaining the internal environment - Homeostasis - Changes in an organism’s metabolic activity, in addition to structural features and changes in physiological processes and behaviour, enable the organism to maintain its internal environment within tolerance limits
      ACSBL110 - Maintaining the internal environment - Homeostasis - Homeostasis involves a stimulus response model in which change in external or internal environmental conditions is detected and appropriate responses occur via negative feedback; in vertebrates, receptors and effectors are linked via a control centre by n

      ACSSU149 - Biological Sciences - Cells - Cells are the basic units of living things and have specialised structures and functions
      ACSSU176 - Biological Sciences - Ecology - Ecosystems consist of communities of interdependent organisms and abiotic components of the environment; matter and energy flow through these systems
