Wednesday, March 6, 2013 | 10:19 PM | 0 comments

When it comes so boring to learn by reading and memorizing, I decide to just translate what's in the textbook~ well, I'm goin to have biology test tomorrow! ....and English subject~   시러

나는  초폐인이라능!! ㅋㅋㅋ  헉

background music :: call me maybe 


Biology affects our way of living. 

The relationship between environment and ourselves, what we eat, potential sickness, etc.

The concepts of biology are able to help us to :

■ understand ourselves and our environment.

■ increase the quality of life,  such as using the natural resources to complete our needs, preventing the spread of diseases, and developing a new way to use other organisms.

Scope of biology  ::

Some of branches of biology below :

■ molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics : study of the life in molecular level.

■ cytology is a study of the life in cellular level.

■ histology is a study of microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues of plants and animals.

■ anatomy and organ system ; a study of organs. For examples :

  • Pulmonology, a medical specialty of respiratory.
  • Cardiology, a medical specialty dealing with heart diseases.
  • Endocrinology, is a branch of biology dealing with the endocrines.
  • Neurology, a study of disorders of nervous system.
Just make it shorter!  *sighs*
Texts in blue are just unimportant stuffs , so just ignore it 
♪ (biology branch) : (the study)

♪ Developmental biology : life in individual level
♪ Population biology : life in population level
♪ Ecology, environmental study, toxicology, marine biology, and limnology : life in ecosystem.
♪ Tropical biology : life in biome-level, tropical biome.

 Some branches of biology that learn about a group of organisms :
♪ Taxonomy - grouping of organisms based on similarities and differences.
♪ Virology - viruses.
♪ Microbiology - microorganisms, including 'bacteriology' that learns about bacteria.
♪ Mycology - fungus, yeast, and mold.
♪ Botany - plants (Pteridology : ferns ; Bryology : mosses, liverworts, and hornworts)
♪ Zoology - animals * : it learns abt me yeah :3*
      ●  Entomology - insects
      ●  Ictiology - fishes
      ●  Herpetology - amphibians
      ●  Ornithology - birds
      ●  Mammalogy - mammals
  Some branches of biology that learn based on the aspects of life :
♪ Embryology - development of an embryo from the fertilization of the ovum to the fetus stage.
♪ Anatomy - structures of living things; human, animal, plants etc.
♪ Physiology - function of living systems.
Some branches of biology that are the mixtures and also applied knowledges.
♪ Biochemistry - chemical process in biological system.
♪ Biophysics - physical process in biological system.
♪ Biotechnology - technologies that use organisms.
♪ Paleontology - prehistoric life, fossils, to determine organisms' evolution and interaction.

*looks at my watch* oh damn~! @_@ 9㏘ already! 

Level of Organization of Living Things :: cell → tissues → organ → organ system → organism → population → community → ecosystem → biome → biosphere
