Overview: General Science includes: 1. Biology 2. Chemistry 3. Physics 4. Science & Technology
Biology-> Greek word 'bios - life' & 'logos- study' . Study of life & living Beings o Morphology o Anatomy o Genetics o Classification:s o Relationship with other Organisms etc. . Father of Biology as well as zoology Aristotle Father of Botany: Theophrastus . Botany: o scientific study of plants, including their physiology, structure, genetics, and ecology. . Zoology o scientific study of the behavior, structure, physiology, classification, and distribution of animals
Applied Botany: a) Agriculture: deals with the crops. d Horticulture: Deals with the formation and maintenance of the garden. c) Forestry: Works for conservation of forest.
Applied Zoology: a) Sericulture: Works for rearing of silkworms. b) Apiculture: deals for rearing of honey bees. c) Poultry: deals for rearing of fowl, duck, geese, etc. d) Pisciculture: Works for rearing and cultivation of fish e) Animal husbandry: deals with the rearing and cultivation of cattle-like domestic animals. f) Aquaculture : involves production and maintenance of freshwater and seawater animals and plants
