The study of biology constitutes an exciting and important field of scientific investigation, since it provides a better understanding of ourselves and the living things around us.

Even the casual observer of biology who pauses long enough to take a course may derive a lifetime of pleasure and fulfillment from a hobby such as bird watching, shell collecting, or wildflower photography.
