Biologists are scientists who specialize in the study of biology. They generally research on living organism, investigating their functioning and life mechanism. However, their work isn’t limited to that alone. Biologists are responsible for helping us best understand nature and our living standard by exploring the beginning and progression of life. They devise theories, develop vaccines, publish reports of their findings and provide solutions to environmental problems. With the expansion of the field of biology, the study of a biologist is not limited to micro-organism or multi-cellular ones. They research on fields like botany, zoology, microbiology, genetics and evolution biology. British biologists have largely contributed in the field of biology with their findings and research. They have discovered some of the nature’s most hidden secrets through their investigations. Norman Heatley is one of the scientists responsible for developing penicillin. Dave Goulson, a noted British biologist, specializes in the ecology and conservation of bumblebees.
