This repository aims to disseminate natural sciences for providing comprehensive information on the basic and applied life, earth and health sciences.
It covers scholarly natural sciences content from the disciplines of the life sciences, earth sciences, and the health sciences as a foundation to explain and tackle biological, geographical, environmental and health issues.
The life sciences cover life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, genetics, and distribution. Scien.net provides information on basic life sciences (botany, ecology, zoology), applied and interdisciplinary life sciences (biochemistry, biomedicine, biotechnology), and on related areas. It focuses on research literature of agriculture including animal and veterinary sciences, entomology, plant sciences, forestry, aquaculture and fisheries, farming and farming systems and agricultural economics. As such it relates such research to natural resources management and to the environmental sciences for providing solutions to global biology.
The earth sciences cover the physical characteristics of the earth including its surface features, and the distribution of life on earth. Integrating development studies, geology, human geography and oceanography, Scien.net is a unique repository for physical and human geography which impacts the global environment.
Scien.net covers the effects of disease and medical treatment on the overall condition of organisms and how environmental changes impact the wellbeing of humans and other organisms.
