 Biology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Evolutionary biology is mainly based on paleontology, which uses the fossil record to answer questions about the mode and tempo of evolution, as well as the developments in areas such as population genetics and evolutionary theory.
At the organism level, biology has explained phenomena such as birth, growth, ageing, death and decay of living organisms, similarities between offspring and their parents (heredity) and flowering of plants which have puzzled humanity ever since antiquity.
Developmental biology studies life at the level of an individual organism's development or ontogeny.

Describe Erikson’s theory of physical, emotional, and psychological human development, or “eight stages of life.” He wrote that each stage of a person’s life is characterized by a different psychological crisis that must be resolved before the person can successfully progress to the next stage.
Explain that psychologists have studied the relationships between these milestones of human aging and emotional and social development.

This was because during the period 1950-1970 it was believed that the development of a brain larger than an ape brain was the trigger that caused apes to evolve into humans.
One of the most striking characteristics possessed by Lucy was that she had a small skull, bipedal knee structure, and molars and front teeth of human (rather than great ape) style and relative size, but a small skull and small body.

 Race article - Race sport racing controversial political sociological humans biology - What-Means.com
The historical definition of race, before the development of evolutionary biology, was that of common lineage, a vague concept interchangeable with species, breed, cultural origin, or national character ("The whole race of mankind." – Shakespeare; "From whence the race of Alban fathers come" – Dryden).
In biology, a race was defined as a recognisable group forming all or part of a monotypic or polytypic species.
Given the way that different human "races" fade gradually from one to another in many parts of the world, the overwhelming majority of the current generation of cultural anthropologists draw the conclusion that human "racial" variation is in fact clinal, and that the human species is monotypic.

Chief among the challenges to be addressed in brain tumor research is limited knowledge about the basic biology of brain endothelial cells, about the cells of origin and the developmental changes in gene and protein expression in brain and endothelial cells, and about the proliferative potential, turnover rate, and regional differences of brain endothelial cells.
Improving our knowledge of the basic molecular and cellular biology of the brain microvasculature, which constitutes the BBB and BTB in vivo, could lead to innovative new strategies for drug targeting to human brain tumors.
An improved understanding of the brain vasculature and the BBB will play a crucial role in the development of new therapeutic and diagnostic approaches for the treatment of human brain tumors.

 Social Biology: Human Ecology, Crime, and Crime Control: Linking Individual Behavior and Aggregate Crime
After reviewing literature related to human ecology and crime, the paper focuses on elements relevant to human ecology-biology, development, and ecological factors-and their role in criminal behavior.
The untimely disconnection of human ecology from biology led many to see it as a sub-field in the increasingly balkanized social sciences and it drifted farther from its biological roots while the natural sciences continued their centuries-old pursuit of interdisciplinary consilience.
Most "ecological" research reported in social science journals today is disconnected from human biology, focusing mostly on macro-level community factors that influence criminal behavior or on interactions between humans and their physical environment.
