 Human biology
Human biology is an academic field of biology which focuses on humans; it is closely related to medicine, primate biology, and a number of other fields.
Even though humans are multicellular animals, many of the basic life processes of human cells are basically the same as in simple unicellular eukaryotes such as yeast and even prokaryotes.
The study of development from fertilized cell to fully developed body is studied in developmental biology, the structure of the developed human body is studied in human anatomy and its function in human physiology.

 What is Human Biology
Human Biology is concerned with understanding the human condition from a primarily biological point of view.
Human Biology is characterized by a holistic approach, appreciating that life is more than the physical and chemical processes that underlay it.
Human Biologists are specialists - in bringing together the disparate sub-components that contribute to the human condition so that we can more fully understand how humans function and behave, and how these processes arose.

 Human development (biology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Human development is the process of growing to maturity.
In biological terms, this entails growth from a one-celled zygote to an adult human being.
Development begins with fertilization, the process by which the male gamete, the sperm cell, and the female gamete, the oocyte, fuse to give rise to a diploid cell, the zygote.
