Biology is the study of life and living things through rigorously-tested and peer-reviewed scientific research methods.
Science is knowledge obtained from logical inferences and deductive experimentation that attempts to comprehend nature.
The scientific method is a process by which observations are questioned; hypotheses are created and tested; and the results are analyzed.
Basic science increases the knowledge base of a field of research while applied science uses that knowledge to solve specific problems.
Publication of scientific research in a peer-reviewed journal allows other scientists access to the research.
