Biology \Bi*ol"o*gy\, n. [Gr. bi`os life + -logy: cf. F. biologie.] The science of life; that branch of knowledge which treats of living matter as distinct from matter which is not living; the study of living tissue. It has to do with the origin, structure, development, function, and distribution of animals and plants. [1913 Webster] ||

Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary

1819, from Greek bios "life" (see bio-) + -logy. Suggested 1802 by German naturalist Gottfried Reinhold Treviranus (1776-1837), and introduced as a scientific term that year in French by Lamarck.


n. The study of all life or living matter.

  1. n. the science that studies living organisms [syn: biological science]

  2. characteristic life processes and phenomena of living organisms; "the biology of viruses"

  3. all the plant and animal life of a particular region [syn: biota]

Biology (song)

"Biology" is a song performed by English-Irish all-female pop group Girls Aloud, taken from their third studio album Chemistry (2005). The song was written by Miranda Cooper, Brian Higgins and his production team Xenomania, and produced by Higgins and Xenomania. Composed of distinct sections, it avoids the verse-chorus form present in most contemporary pop music. "Biology" was released as a single in November 2005, ahead of the album's release. Following the disappointment of " Long Hot Summer", "Biology" returned Girls Aloud to the top five of the UK Singles Chart and became their tenth top ten hit.

The music video, consisting only of group shots, witnesses Girls Aloud seamlessly move through various sequences while performing disjointed choreography. "Biology" was promoted through a number of live appearances and has since been performed on all of Girls Aloud's subsequent concert tours. The song, which includes a variety of styles, received widespread acclaim from contemporary music critics. Considered one of Girls Aloud's signature songs, The Guardian referred to "Biology" as "the best pop single of the last decade."

Biology (band)

Biology was an indie rock band that was signed up to Vagrant Records.

Biology was a creation of From Autumn To Ashes drummer Francis Mark ( guitar and vocals), Every Time I Die bassist Josh Newton (guitar), producer Brian McTernan (bass) and Cornbread Compton of Engine Down ( drums).

Francis Mark is known as the lighter, more melodic, side of From Autumn To Ashes, and Biology's music reflects this clearly.

Making Moves, Biology's only album, was released September 27, 2005, via Vagrant Records.

Biology announced a breakup on April 4, 2008.

Usage examples of "biology".

He had a deep interest in physics, biology and genetics, ridiculed the idea that man had a special place in the cosmos, did not believe in life after death, individual destiny, or that the mind can exist independently of the body, preferring logical explanations for phenomena, based on experience.
