Biology Timeline

Archaeological records indicate that even before the development of civilization, humans had domesticated virtually all the amenable animals available to them and had developed an agricultural system Much of the earliest recorded history of biology is derived from Assyrian and Babylonian bas-reliefs showing cultivated plants and from carvings depicting veterinary medicine.Papyri and artifacts found in tombs and pyramids indicate that the Egyptians also possessed considerable medical knowledge. Around 600 BCE there arose a school of Greek philosophers who believed that every event has a cause and that a particular cause produces a particular effect. That concept, known as causality, had a profound effect on subsequent scientific investigation. Furthermore, those philosophers assumed the existence of a “natural law”Around the middle of the 4th century BCE, ancient Greek science reached a climax with Aristotle, who was interested in all branches of knowledge, including biology.the work of Theophrastus, one of Aristotle’s students, has been preserved to represent plant science of the Greek period.From 300 BCE until around the time of Christ, all significant biological advances were made by physicians at Alexandria. One of the most outstanding of those individuals was Herophilus, who dissected human bodies and compared their structures with those of other large mammals.Erasistratus, a younger contemporary and reputed rival of Herophilus who also worked at the museum in Alexandria, studied the valves of the heart and the circulation of blood.During the almost 1,000 years that science was dormant in Europe, the Arabs, who by the 9th century had extended their sphere of influence as far as Spain, became the custodians of science and dominated biology, as they did other disciplines.Muslim physician Avicenna was an outstanding scientist who lived during the late 10th and early 11th centuries; he was the true successor to Aristotle. His writings on medicine and drugs, which were particularly authoritative and remained so until the Renaissance, did much to take the works of Aristotle back to Europe, where they were translated into Latin from Arabic.
