This is section 1.3 in the book Biology: The Dynamics of Life. I talk about quantitative vs. qualitative research, how science is influenced by society, the difference between pure science and applied science and then I finish off with the definition of technology, when it comes to science.
This ends the introductory chapter entitled “What is Biology”. Now that we understand what biology is, we are going to go into the next section on Ecology. Stay tuned!
