Biology (or Biological Science) is the study of living organisms.

Hair and Nails Continue to Grow After Death

hair and nails grow after you die

This article dispels the myth that hair and nails continue to grow after death by discussing the biological processes and presenting scientific evidence.

A Lichen is Both a Fungus and an Algae

Lichen is not a plant.

A lichen isn’t. a plant, it is a dual organism that is both a fungus and algae. The term symbiosis was even coined to describe this phenomenon.

We See Everything Upside-Down

The lens of each eye casts an upside-down image onto the retina. Then your brain takes these two upside-down images at slightly different perspectives (one per eye) and creates a single right-side-up image.

98.6°F (37°C) is the Normal Body Temperature

98.6°F (37°C) is generally accepted as the normal body temperature of humans, but this commonly thought of average isn’t normal for everyone.  Studies have shown normal ranges from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C) according to

The Square Cube Law Impacts Biomechanics

We know how complex cells evolved.

The square cube law says that volume increases faster than surface area when an object increases in size proportionally. This affects biomechanics (AKA the way organisms are built).
