Biology is one of the central scientific fields in natural sciences. This is knowledge about animals, plants, microorganisms and fungi and their mutual interactions and linkage with the environment. Biology deals with all levels of biological organisation, from molecules to ecosystems.
The phenomenon of new scientific fields of biology does not reduce the role, but precisely the opposite. The need for an overview of life, in which molecules and ecosystems interact in a dynamic and rounded totality, gives biology ever greater importance. The scientific field of biology in studies of Biosciences is planned in such a way that it covers the widest view of life and offers an understanding of the dynamic, changabe and transitory nature of living beings. This knowledge is of decisive importance in many human activities, including interventions in the environment, interventions in genes, production of chemicals and materials with which organisms have never previously come in contact and interventions in ecosystems, which have inconceivable consequences. We know that survival on this planet will depend on our responsible behaviour. A precondition for this is familiarity and understanding of biological systems and their interconnection and interdependence.
