Biology examines the structure, function, development, origin, development and distribution of living things. It classifies and describes organisms, their functions, species coming into existence and their interaction with one another and with the natural environment.
Four integrated theories form the foundation of modern biology: cell theory, evolution, genetics, and homostasis.
Biology as a separate science was developed within the nineteenth century, as scientists discovered that organisms shared fundamental characteristics. Traditionally, they are studying the types of organisms: botany, the study of plants; Zoology, study of animals; And microbiology, the study of microorganisms.
Areas within biology are divided supported the size at which organisms are studied and therefore the methods wont to study them: biochemistry examines the essential chemistry of life; biology studies the complex interactions of systems of biological molecules; Cellular biology examines the essential building blocks of all life, the cell; Physiology examines the physical and chemical functions of organisms’ tissues and organ systems; And ecology examines how different organisms are interconnected.
