What is Biology?

Hessen, Dag O: Hva er biologi?

What is Biology is a fascinating and engaged introduction to the theory of Life. The author introduces the readers to early attempts at mapping the diversity of nature, the theory of evolution, ecology, genetics and biotechnology. The readers meet biologists during fieldwork and in their laboratories, unfaithful mice and men, praying mantises eating their beloved ones, banana fleas rapidly reproducing themselves in genetic laboratories, altruistic ants and resistant bacteria. The author also discusses the possibilities and limitations of biology. Is there any inherent connection between ecology and environmental protection?
