depends what board you are doing i spose. the ones listed are quite specific in some cases (eg transport in plants) AQA gives more generalised ones and expects both plants and animals to be taken into account.

u need to get at least 4 or 5 good examples in, and qaulify them in some depth- i'm gonna try and get more than that though. that'll guarantee you a breadth mark- try and include examples on the levels of cells, tissues, and whole organisms where possible as well (eg something to do with absorption)
