What is life? Answering this question and understanding the diversity and complexity of life form the central focus of biology. Biologists study systems as small as tiny viruses to entire ecosystems. Furthermore, biologists attempt to comprehend how organisms interact with other organisms and with the environment, how energy is transferred and transformed, how life’s continuity is based on hereditary information, how life changes over time, that life evolves, and many other inquiries.
