Science and Life
Life sciences include disciplines of science that are concerned with the scientific study of life – including microbes, plants, and animals, including humans. Biology is an umbrella term for the natural sciences that study life, with the other life sciences serving as subfields.
In our holistic approaches to health, life and wellbeing, the area of Life Sciences complements all areas of our website with a more scientific point of view to better understand the advances in bioscience and their profound implications.
Also, in the area of Life sciences, we aim to promote the understanding of biodiversity of life and improve bioscience literacy to increase global ecological consciousness and promote bioscience education. We see a fundamental knowledge of bioscience as a basis to be able to improve health of humans, animals and the environment for a balanced ecosystem.
Goals and Features of Bioscience on ICWB.com
To achieve the beforementioned aims, this section features articles written by scientists, scientific educators and science students on a variety of bioscience-related subjects. Topics include the environment, biodiversity, genetics, biotechnology, evolution, and science policy. Additionally, the section provides lessons and materials designed to supplement issue-based bioscience instruction. Our intended audience includes members of the general public, educators, students, and scientists. We appreciate ideas and criticism on material that has been uploaded.
The record shows time and again that one person or a small group can awaken the public to the importance of an issue and bring about a startling change in the direction of a society.Hal Mooney. “State of the Planet.” 2002. September edition of National Geographic Magazine.
Inspired by the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS)
The American Institute of Biological Sciences, which owned and ran actionbioscience.org, was a nonprofit 501(c)(3) scientific organization devoted to advancing biological research and education for the benefit of society. AIBS works to guarantee that the public, lawmakers, funders, and the community of biologists all had access to and use information that will assist them in making educated decisions regarding biologically related issues.
AIBS was founded in 1947 as a division of the National Academy of Sciences and nowadays includes approximately 160 member organizations. It accomplishes this mission through the publication of the peer-reviewed journal BioScience and formally the educational website ActionBioScience.org, through the provision of scientific peer review and advisory services to government agencies and other clients.
