There are two universal truths about biology. First, is unity. Life evolved once: its fundamental processes and building blocks are essentially the same regardless of species or location. The second is diversity. Evolution gave rise dazzling variety: millions of species, each with a unique array of adaptations, and a myriad different local communities. At the School of Biological Sciences, we study the proximate mechanisms underlying biological systems as well as their ultimate outcomes. Our teaching and research contributes to the understanding, appreciation and conservation of nature in Hong Kong and globally.
