Biology is defined as:

       "the science of life. Biology includes all the life sciences – for example, anatomy and physiology (the study of the structure of living things), cytology (the study of cells), zoology (the study of animals), botany (the study of plants), ecology (the study of habitats and the interaction of living species), animal behavior, embryology, and taxonomy (classification), and plant breeding. Increasingly biologists have concentrated on molecular structures: biochemistry, biophysics, and genetics (the study of inheritance and variation)."
