    List of different branches of Biology and their Fathers

    Biology is the life science which is derived from a Greek word 'bios' meaning life and ‘logy’ meaning study. That is, it is a science of nature which deals with life and living organisms, structure of life, function, evolution, growth, distribution and taxonomy. The term biology was first used by scientists Lamarck and Triviranus in 1801.
    The study of living beings for improved understanding or prediction of natural or other phenomena is called Pure Biology or Basic Research or Fundamental Research. They are driven by curiosity, innovations in science. Whereas the study of living beings to develop various technologies or techniques to alter natural or other phenomena is called Applied Biology or Applied Research.

    Development as a sequential knowledge of biology took place in the era of the famous Greek philosopher Aristotle (384- 322 B.C.). He revealed his thoughts about various aspects of the life of plants and animals. Therefore, Aristotle is called as the Father of Biology. Let us study the list of Fathers of different branches of biology through this article.
