Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution, identification and taxonomy.  In general, biology recognizes the cell as the basic unit of life, genes as the basic unit of heredity, and evolution as the engine that propels the synthesis and creation of new species. It is also understood today that all the organisms survive by consuming and transforming energy and by regulating their internal environment to maintain a stable and vital condition.The BioWiki is designed to maintain all Modules (pages of biology information) in the primary sections in the Core, whereas the Wikitexts contain only class organization that is custom designed and developed for individual instructors, classes or schools.
