There are more than three branches of biology and they're all rather important. There's agriculture, anatomy, astrobiology, biochemistry, bioclimatology, bio engineering, biogeography, bioinformatics, biomechanics, biomathematics (or mathematical biology), bio physics, biotechnology, botany, cell biology, conservation biology, chronobiology, cryobiology, developmental biology, ecology, ethnobiology, ethology, entomology, evolutionary biology, freshwater biology, genetics, geobiology, herpetology, histology, ichthyology, immunobiology, macriobiology, mammology, marine biology, medicine, microbiology, molecular biology and more.

Agriculture may not be thought of as biology but it is indeed, and it's the science and the practice of producing livestock and crops from the natural resources found within the earth to produce food and sustenance for humans and animals alike. Anatomy is very important too, as this is the study of the animal and human form, looking at how the body works and how it can be made healthy and preserved for long life.

Astrobiology is a branch of biology that is concerned with the effects of space on living organisms from earth. It is also concerned with the ongoing search for life on other planets and in space, and without this kind of science we could of course never go any further than we are now in terms of understanding how life came to exist.

Biochemistry is a popular subject for people in universities across the world. It concerns the chemical processes that occur within all living organisms on earth, and it studies the structure and the function of cellular components within the body - like carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids and many other biomolecules. It also looks at the functions and transformations that occur in human life.

You may not have heard of bioclimatology but that's important, too. It is a science that is concerned with the influence that climates have on organisms throughout the world. It looks at the effects that the climate has on the development and the distributions of humans, plants and animals.
