Why is Biology so Important?

Biology is the science of life. Biologists study the structure, function, growth, origin, evolution and distribution of living organisms. It is important to study biology for many reasons including:

·         Protection and sustainability of ecosystems and natural resources—Human society is ultimately dependent on the natural world for ecosystem services and biological resources, e.gs. fresh water, and clean air.

·         Social health—Biology, including evolutionary biology and medicine, help us to understand major health issues as they become more urgent.

·         The biological sciences are some of the fastest growing areas of science in business and industry, and this will only increase as the century unfolds.
