That's a great question. Life Science(s) is the
term used to describe the scientific study of
living organisms and their environment. This
includes everything from microscopic viruses (and
smaller) to humans, to whole ecosystems. A major
component of the life sciences is in the study of
biology, which translates (from Greek) to "study
of" [logia] "life" [bios]. If you have more
specific questions about the life sciences, please
