Are you interested in biology? Cell biology is the study of cells, the basic units of structure and function in living organisms. Cells were first seen in the 17th century when the compound microscope came out. Population biology deals with groupings or populations of organisms that live in a specific area or region. This quiz will have you intrigued with biology and its many compartments.
