At the heart of all, biology is still the science of life. Observing and studying living organisms is critical to a good, strong program. Whether in the field or in the classroom—as a small part of a larger ecosystem or as the ecosystem with microscopic parts—the study of living organisms is at the core of the discipline. Amidst all the chemicals, new equipment, and technology, living organisms need to be maintained in a safe and educationally sound manner. This requires serious effort. This chapter highlights why it is important to remember why it is worth all the extra work.
