|Description:||Biology is also known as a natural science concerned with the study of all living organisms. Although living organisms share some unifying themes, such as their origin from the same basic cellular structure and their molecular basis of inheritance, they are diverse in many other aspects.
The diversity of life leads to many divisions in biological science involved with studying all aspects of living organisms. Biologists look at such topics as origins, structure, function, reproduction, growth and development, behaviour and evolution of different organisms. In addition, biologists consider how living organisms interact with each other, and the environment, on an individual as well as group basis.
