Subtopics

  • Origin of life [r]: How did self-replicating biochemistry and cells arise from the prebiotic world approximately four billion years ago? Aka abiogenesis. [e]
  • Evolutionary biology [r]: The study of the origin and descent of species, as well as their change, multiplication, and diversity over time. [e]
  • Botany [r]: The study of plants, algae and fungi (mycology). [e]
  • Physiology [r]: The study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of tissues and how they interact. [e]
  • Autopoiesis [r]: The concept of a living system as autonomously self-organizing within its physical boundary, generating and continually regenerating its own components, thereby maintaining the molecular and supramolecular hierarchy of interacting networks that self-organize and self-perpetuate the system. [e]
