Taxonomy is the distinct branch of biology whose aim. is only one to know the vast and diverse living world accurately and classify them with little effort in a short period of time is called taxonomy.
Morphology is a branch of physical biology. The field deals with the form and structure of organisms. It describes both the external and internal structure of the body. The external description of the body is called external morphology and the internal description of the body is called internal morphology. The organism can be identified easily by knowing about the description of its body.
Difference between Bio-geography and Oceanography
The branches mentioned in the stem are bio-geography and oceanography. These are under the principal branches of biology called physical and applied biology. The differences between physical and applied biology are given below:
Physical biology deals ‘with the theoretical basis of organism while the Applied basis is reflected in applied biology. The subject of discussion in physical biology is the external structure about the organism and idea regarding it. On the other hand, the subject of discussion in applied biology is the application of the idea for the perpose of use and the direction of method of use.
The function of physical biology is discussing on gene and heredity of organism. On the other hand the function of applied biology is to deal with genetic engineering and its use.
Morphology, taxonomy, histology, genetics, bio-geography etc are some of the branches of physical biology while paleontology, microbiology, agriculture, oceanography are some of the branches of applied biology.
Oceanography is a branch of applied biology. Applied biology deals with the life related events of an organism. The branches of applied biology are classified below—Applied biology can be classified into different categories on the basis of what they deal with. Some of its notable categories are—
i. Paleontology: Science of the prehistoric life forms and fossils;
ii. Bio-statistics: Science of statistics of organisms;
iii. Parasitology: Science related to parasitism, life process of parasitic organisms and diseases caused by them;
iv. Fisheries: Science dealing with fish, harvesting of fish, management and conservation of fish assets;
v. Entomology: Science related to the study of life, merit, demerit, and control of insects including the losses caused by them;
vi. Microbiology: Science related to virus, bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms;
vii. Genetic Engineering: Science associated with gene technology and its utilities;
viii. Biochemistry: Science connected to biochemical process and diseases of organisms;
ix. Oceanography: Science related to ocean and its resources;
