The following link takes readers to the biological sciences sub-section of my website: http://www.ronpricee...BIOLOGICAL.html ....I open that section as follows. My question has to do with how I could better organize this introduction, this webpage, to the subject.-Ron Price, Tasmania


The disciplines and sub-disciplines, categories and sub-categories of the biological sciences have multiplied and burgeoned, taking the form of some great efflorescence of knowledge in the last two centuries (1800-2000).  Any comprehensive history of the biological sciences traces the study of the living world from ancient to modern times. Although the concept of biology as a single coherent field arose only recently, in the 19th century, the biological sciences emerged from traditions of medicine and natural history reaching back to ayurveda, ancient Egyptian medicine, and the works of Aristotle and Galen in the ancient Greco-Roman world.

As the 19th century developed, the scope of biology was largely divided between medicine and natural history. Medicine investigated questions of form and function, that is physiology, and natural history was concerned with the diversity of life and interactions among different forms of life and between life and non-life.  By the beginning of the 20th century, much of these two domains overlapped, while natural history, and its counterpart natural philosophy, had largely given way to more specialized scientific disciplines like: cytology, bacteriology, morphology, embryology, geography, and geology.

Looking good. And informative.

So. Now that you have your first ever question on bioforum answered (or not), mail yourself your username and password so you don't forget them, and then come back soon to update us on how it all worked out. That's how you build Karma in science.
