Within in this field there are several subsets of topics including Botany, Ecology, Entomology, Epidemiology, Genetics, Marine Biology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Physiology, Paleontology, Zoology. Botany focuses on the study of Earth’s over 400,000 species of plants. Zoology on the other hand focuses on the study of animals. Ecology looks at how these living things interact with the environment around them. Microbiology explores the smallest living things there are which just happen to be mostly bacteria and viruses. All these different branches of life science have helped us improve our individual lives and health as well as allow us to begin to sustain the planet for future generations. There are many fascinating turns and twists that this field of study takes. Students are often quickly engaged to learn about all the creepy crawlies of life.
