    The word “biology” roots from Greek origins, meaning “the study of life.” Not surprisingly, biology as a science began in ancient Greece with people like Aristotle, writing manuscripts that detailed the natural history of known living things. In the modern age, biology is an umbrella science, encompassing many more specialized fields of study: zoology, botany, physiology, etc. The list goes on and on. As the science went on, it began to not simply classify species of living things on this planet, but where they came from. Paleontology is a good example, digging up and studying fossils of ancient livings past. Biology also encompasses medicine, human and otherwise, and helps use battle sickness and disease. Medicine too began as an actual science in Greece, taking knowledge from different parts of the world into the medicinal consensus of today.
