The Wonders of the Inner World:
Journey into the world of plants, animals and humans :
The study of natural phenomenon is exciting. Acquiring proficiency in the language of science is exciting. Well, the study of life in its varied forms, shapes, sizes, and colors is fascinating. Look around and the diversity offered by life is staggering in scope: microbe to cell, cactus to orchid, butterfly to bald eagle, penguin to a seal and dolphin to human. Understanding the evolution, the structure, and function of varied species and how they live, behave and relate to each other is what biology is about.
Major themes that unify biology include structure and functioning of cells which are basic building blocks of all organisms, inheritance of biological information in the form of DNA, unity and diversity of life through evolution, and flow of matter and energy through cycles of life. It is interesting to understand the hierarchical organization of structures extending from molecules to bio-sphere and how incremental changes add to the changes in properties. It is amazing to know that just 4 elements constitute 96% of living matter with water as solvent of life.
In fact, the above are just a tip of the iceberg. Inside the web pages you will find a whole host of topics ranging from plant form and function to animal form and function, from human physiology to health, from evolutionary biology to ecology, and from biochemistry to molecular genetics. The concepts and principles are well laid with practical examples and visualized with clear graphics for your clarity.
Get ready to travel into the inner world and change the way you look at life and world around.
