Biology, as an academic discipline has broadened and diversified with the development of advanced laboratory equipment and sophisticated techniques in collaboration with chemists, physicists and engineers. This has led to a dynamic development of research in all levels of biological complexity from the molecules to ecosystems, where their properties and interactions are analyzed.
Biology is closely related to the fields of agriculture, fisheries, forestry, nutrition, allied health care sciences such as medicine, nursing, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, animal and plant sciences, and environmental science.
