The knowledge of Zoology and Environmental Biology is the central theme in such emerging areas like Ecotoxicology, Animal Biotechnology, Biodiversity Studies, Ecosystem Monitoring, Environmental Management and Animal Bioinformatics. Environmental Biology encompassing such multidisciplinary areas has become an important issue in animal biodiversity prospecting, wildlife conservation and environmental management.

Environmental biologists study specific regional environments as well as the organisms and wildlife that inhabit those locations. These professionals aid in the protection and survival of wildlife within any given ecosystem, and they assess the impact of human activity on the environment.

Environmental science is an interdisciplinary field that can involve Biology


On one hand, Biology is a specific field that concerns the study of living organisms, their structure, growth, … For example : evolution, anatomy, …

On the other hand, Environmental science is an interdisciplinary academic field. Environmental science uses knowledge in physics, chemistry, geology, biology, oceanography and many other fields to try to solve environmental problems. To summarize, the questions asked in environmental sciences cannot be completely answered by only one field of research. For example : climate change, pollution, …
