Need help with this:
'Social bees survive by collecting nectar or pollen from flowers, pollinating the flower in the process. They must keep their hives at a constant temperature, moisture, and oxygen content for their larvae to develop. One way they do this is by beating their wings to circulate air. Using this information, discuss 5 of the 7 major themes in biology as they relate to this example.'
I know that the 7 themes of biology are:
-Cellular structure and function
The only two that I can think of that relate to this is metabolism and interpendence. can someone please give me 5 other ones that might relate to this example and tell me how?

Dont cell changes in the larvae/eggs require a specific temp?
How would the bees reproduce if this process were not maintained. Think about this. In freezing cold, when large amounts of heat cannot be maintained, the bees have very few larvae in process.
Heredity determines that this process continues...the bees dont learn it.
Evolution: is this process in harmony with the seasons (temp, nectar availiabilty, pollen avail? is it any wonder that bees reproduce when the spring flowers just open.
Evolution: bees and flowers have formed a symbosis over time, each developing specific part/roles which assist each other.
Interdependence; all above.
