A historical perspective of one's field is invaluable. This book is a collection of papers that reveal the foundations of ecology. Seeing the train of thought that has led to our current understanding of the field will validate current trends in ecology, /5(22). Biology is the natural science that studies life and living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical processes, molecular interactions, physiological mechanisms, development and evolution.

Despite the complexity of the science, there are certain unifying concepts that consolidate it into a single, coherent field. Biology recognizes the cell as the basic unit of life, genes as. The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to academic disciplines.

In each case an entry at the highest level of the hierarchy (e.g., Humanities) is a group of broadly similar disciplines; an entry at the next highest level (e.g., Music) is a discipline having some degree. Foundations of Systems Biology.
