The Fathers of Biology is Aristotle. In the 4th century BC the Greek philosopher Aristotle traveled to Lesvos, an island in the Aegean teeming, then as now, with wildlife. His fascination with what he found there, and his painstaking study of it, led to the birth of a new science i.e., Biology. Biology is one of the three major branches of natural science. Biology is the study of life, living things and evolution of life. Living things like animals, plants, fungi, microorganisms, etc.
