    BIOLOGY Biology is the study of life -- life in all of its grandeur. From the very small algae to the very large elephant‚ life has a certain wonder about it. With that in mind‚ how do we know if something is living? Is a virus alive or dead? What are the characteristics of life? These are all very important questions with equally important answers. Characteristics of Life Living tings include both the visible worlds of animals and plants as well as the invisible world of bacteria and viruses.On

    Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms‚ including their structure‚ function‚ growth‚ evolution‚ distribution‚ and taxonomy.[1] Modern biology is a vast and eclectic field‚ composed of many branches and subdisciplines. However‚ despite the broad scope of biology‚ there are certain general and unifying concepts within it which govern all study and research‚ consolidating it into single‚ coherent field. Biology generally recognizes the cell as the basic unit

  • Energy conservation

    Energy conservation refers to reducing energy through using less of an energy service. Energy conservation differs from efficient energy use‚ which refers to using less energy for a constant service. For example‚ driving less is an example of energy conservation. Driving the same amount with a higher mileage vehicle is an example of energy efficiency. Energy conservation and efficiency are both energy reduction techniques. Even though energy conservation reduces energy services‚ it can result in

  • water conservation

    Water conservation refers to reducing the usage of water and recycling of waste water for different purposes such as cleaning‚ manufacturing‚ and agricultural irrigation. Water conservation programs are typically initiated at the local level‚ by either municipal water utilities or regional governments. Common strategies include public outreach campaigns‚ tiered water rates (charging progressively higher prices as water use increases)‚ or restrictions on outdoor water use such as lawn watering
