Life Sciences cover those areas of scientific endeavour that study living organisms in their many forms: micro-organisms, plants, animals and human beings. Based around the core subject of biology, life sciences also embrace specialist fields of botany (plants) and zoology (animals). They can be further sub-divided into subject areas that cover particular life forms, such as marine biology (ranging from microscopic plankton to huge marine mammals) and ornithology (birds). Other areas cover themes common to many life forms, such as anatomy, ecology, genetics and physiology. And key parts of the human life sciences relate to study of the brain and mind, including neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry.
Electronics play an important and growing role in many types of scientific experiment, aiding the capture, storage and interpretation of signals that monitor biological conditions, behaviours and processes. The development and application of specialist sensors and the increasing computational abilities of compact, lightweight and battery-powered processing platforms, allows scientists to gain ever deeper insights and understanding that aids their vital efforts to tackle illness and disease, conserve threatened life forms and sustain biodiversity through ecological and environmental protection measures.
