Biology is exciting and informative

Biology is exciting and informative, giving us insight into the beauty of life. What we see with the microscope is the amazing developmental process by which form emerges out of unformed material. To watch an embryo develop is to see the life of a new individual emerge, gradually, stage by stage, from very simple material that started with the coming together of two cells.


For those who seek mystery and beauty, both are abundant in the ways that developmental processes unfold.
