Biology is the study of life. Biologists examine life at all levels of organization: chemical, molecular, cellular, organismal, and community. Biology is an extraordinarily dynamic science that interfaces with many other disciplines, continually advancing our understanding of life's complexities. The patterns and processes of evolution provide a unifying theme for our knowledge of the astounding variety of living organisms, past and present.
