The study of Biological Sciences is brought together by 5 basic understandings about living organisms. These concepts range over 9 fields of study all interrelated. Biologists study the structure, function, growth, origin, evolution and distribution of organisms.

 

SPECIALISATION

Biochemistry
Biochemistry is the study of the chemical substances and processes that occur in plants, animals and microorganisms and of the changes they undergo during development and life.
Botany
Botany focuses on the study of plants, including their structure, properties, and biochemical processes.
Cellular biology
Cell biology focuses on the study of cells, especially their formation, structure, components, and function.
Ecology
Ecology focuses on the study of the processes influencing the distribution and abundance of organisms, the interactions among organisms, and the interactions between organisms and the transformation and flux of energy and matter.
Evolutionary biology
Evolutionary biology focuses on the processes of change in populations of organisms, esp. taxonomy, paleontology, ethology, population genetics, and ecology.
Genetics
Genetics focuses on the science of heredity and deal with resemblances and differences of related organisms resulting from the interaction of their genes and the environment.
Molecular biology
Molecular biology focuses on the study of chemical structures and processes of biological phenomena that involve the basic units of life, molecules.
Physiology
Physiology focuses on the study of functions and activities of life or of living matter (such as organs, tissues, or cells) and of the physical and chemical phenomena involved.
Zoology
Zoology focuses on the study, classification and the properties and vital phenomena of animals.
