Biology, Organisms, and Order Help
Introduction to Biology
Hello, there! It’s time for you to start teaching yourself some of the fundamental and fascinating facts about biology (pronounced as buy- AHL -oh-jee). The word, biology, comes from the ancient Greek bi (“life”) and -ology (“study of”). Modern biology, then, is literally the “study of life” in all its forms – plant, animal, or otherwise.
What is Biology?
Biology as the scientific study of living things is a relatively recent development. The term has been in use since the early 1800s to describe the study of living organisms (pronounced as OR -gan- izms ). Basically, an organism is a living thing that is highly organized. By this we mean that an organism has a high degree of Biological Order, a very organized pattern. (Observe the patterns of the organisms shown in Figure 1.1.)
