Biology is the scientific study of life, a state of organic being in plants, animals, fungi, protists, and bacteria. The word biology comes from combining the Greek words “bios”, meaning life, and “logos”, meaning study. Entities considered to be organic life have common characteristics:

  • carbon and water based,
  • cellular with complex organization,
  • undergo metabolism,
  • possess a capacity to grow,
  • respond to stimuli,
  • reproduce,
  • adapt ithrough natural selection in succeeding generations

Biology includes the concepts of evolution, diversity, adaptation, and interactions between organisms through disciplines such as anthropology (study of humans), botany (study of plants) and zoology (study of animals.)

The planet Earth, in the Solar System of the Milky Way Galaxy, contains about 75 billion tons of biomass (life), which live within various biomes within the biosphere. Alternate definitions of life include viruses which do not have a cell membrane or metabolize on their own, and theoretical non-carbon-based life.

The study of bacteria, viruses, protozoans, fungi, and algae is the domain of microbiologists. They study disease-causing organisms as well as the microbes that make life possible on our planet. Some microbiologists develop bacteria to produce materials for human use - like insulin. Other specializations in the field of microbiology, like epidemiologists, look for the causes of new diseases thought to be viral or bacterial in nature.

Illustrations, photographs, diagrams, and charts posted on the classroom and school library walls will help elaborate and reinforce understanding of theories, experiments and observances of topics such as taxonomy, genus, species, and cycles of life.

• “The artist is the person who invents the means to bridge between biological inheritance and the environments created by technological innovation.” ~ Marshall McLuhan
• “The chief function of the city is to convert power into form, energy into culture, dead matter into the living symbols of art, biological reproduction into social creativity.” ~ Lewis Mumford
• “It is a pity that there are no big creatures to prey on humanity. .... Unfortunately man is preyed upon by microbes, which are too small to be appreciated.” ~ Terence H. White

Cells are structural and functional "building block of life". The word cell, from “cella” the Latin for small room, was adopted by English scientist Robert Hooke to describe what he saw through a microscope.

Zoology is the branch of biology that studies animals and animal life. The word zoology is from the Greek zoon = animal and logos = word.

Biosphere: Adaptations & Biodiversity Poster

Poster Text: An adaption is a change in the structure or function of an organism which allows it to thrive within its environmet. It may take physical adaptation such as the size or shape of the organism or it way in whch its body works. It may also be a change in an animals behavior. Adaptation is produced through the process of natural selection. As the environment changes, organisms that cannot adapt eventually die. Individuals with the ability to adapt produce more successful offspring. These offspring may carry the adaption forward until the whole species contains organisms which are adapted to the new environment.
An organism's enviromnet consists of many important element whcih can influence adaption. Whether the climat is hot, cold, dry or wet will have an effect on all creatures that live in that environment. The presence of predators will also have an effect. Prey animals must learn to defend themselves or become adept at escaping predators.

Symbiosis Poster

Poster Text:

“Union gives strength.” Aesop

In symbiosis, two different species live closely together in a mutually beneficial relationship.

The clownfish and sea anemone have a symbiotic relationship. The clownfish is unharmed as it swims through the anemone's deadly stinging tentacles. The anemone shelters the clownfish, protecting it from other predators. In return, the clownfish cleans the anemone, shares leftovers, and fights off harmful intruders.
