It is also understood today that all organisms survive by consuming and transforming energy and by regulating their internal environment to maintain a stable and vital condition. Subdisciplines of biology are defined by the scale at which organisms are studied, the kinds of organisms studied, and the methods used to study them: Biochemistry examines the...

10 QUOTES WITH «BIOLOGY»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word biology.
1
Michael Behe
In Darwin's time all of biology was a black box: not only the cell, or the eye, or digestion, or immunity, but every biological structure and function because, ultimately, no one could explain how biological processes occurred.
2
Janine Benyus
For businesses, biomimicry is about bringing a new discipline - biology - to the design table. It's not to write an environmental impact statement, as most biologists in business do right now.
3
Paul Berg
Novel technologies and ideas that impinge on human biology and their perceived impact on human values have renewed strains in the relationship between science and society.
4
John Tyler Bonner
That the role of size has been to some degree neglected in biology may lie in its simplicity. Size may be a property that affects all of life, but it seems pallid compared to the matter which makes up life. Yet size is an aspect of the living that plays a remarkable, overreaching role that affects life's matter in all its aspects.
5
John Tyler Bonner
As in all of biology, comparative studies showing differences among species are often helpful for a better understanding of the basic mechanisms; with all its advantages, there is a danger of clinging exclusively to one model organism.
6
Thomas Cochrane
Relativity must replace absolutism in the realm of morals as well as in the spheres of physics and biology.
7
Auguste Comte
Men are not allowed to think freely about chemistry and biology: why should they be allowed to think freely about political philosophy?
8
Salvatore J. Cordileone
The reality of marriage as the union of a mother and a father is grounded in our very biology.
9
Richard Dawkins
Biology is the study of complicated things that have the appearance of having been designed with a purpose.
10
Richard Dawkins
I'm fascinated by the idea that genetics is digital. A gene is a long sequence of coded letters, like computer information. Modern biology is becoming very much a branch of information technology.
