Welcome to the fascinating study of life in its varied forms and colors. The diversity of life is expressed and seen through beautiful orchids, butterflies, colorful fish and cool penguins.
Biology is the scientific study of life that enables us to understand how the great diversity of life on earth evolved from the first microbe, the structure and function of different species and how they live, behave and relate to each other in their living environment.
Biology is a multi disciplinary science as the organisms and the world they live in are natural systems to which basic concepts of chemistry and physics apply. Living organisms are made of the same elements like any other matter, involve the same kind of energy transformations and move with same kind of forces. However there are special properties that encompass study of life such as regulation, energy processing, reproduction, growth and development.
Major themes that unify biology include structure and functioning of cells which are basic building blocks of all organisms, inheritance of biological information in the form of DNA molecules from one generation to the next, unity and diversity of life through evolution, interdependence of organisms with their environment and the flow of matter and energy through cycles of life.
