Biology History The objects of our research will be the different forms and manifestations of life, the conditions and laws under which these phenomena occur, and the causes through which they have been effected. The science that concerns itself with these objects we will indicate by the name biology [Biologie] or the doctrine of life [Lebenslehre]. Although modern biology is a relatively recent development, sciences related to and included within it have been studied since ancient times.

7 Health Benefits of Ginger I love the aromatic spicy taste of ginger and how it adds a unique flavor to my meals and beverages.

Instead life almost certainly originated in a series of small steps, each building upon the complexity that evolved previously: Simple organic molecules were formed. Simple organic molecules, similar to the nucleotide shown below, are the building blocks of life and must have been involved in its origin.

The session offered insights into the method in which exam questions will be written. 30 Ways to Define Leadership Credit: Rawpixel/Shutterstock Webster's Dictionary defines leadership as "the power or ability to lead other people," but for most people, there's a lot more to it than that. Ask anyone what it means to be a leader, and you'll likely hear something unique every time. That's because everyone has his or her own idea of what leadership is, but not every boss leads a team the same way. Some people think leadership means guiding others to complete a particular task, while others believe it means motivating the members of your team to be their best selves.
