Sherlock Bunny Loves Science Science is the observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.

There are different types of science. Exact sciences and Descriptive sciences. Exact sciences are those which typically require precise measurements like Physics and Chemistry. Descriptive sciences are those which are more often oriented towards classification and description, such as biology and paleontology.

Natural sciences are typically divided into the physical sciences and the biological sciences, both of which can be subdivided. The major physical sciences are physics, astronomy, chemistry, and geology; the main biological sciences are botany and zoology.

The Branches of Science may include:

Physical Sciences: any of the natural sciences dealing with inanimate matter or with energy, as physics, chemistry, and astronomy.
    Physics is the science of matter and energy, including light, sound, electricity, magnetism, radiation, and motion.
    Chemistry is the study of the composition of substances and the changes that they undergo.
    Astronomy is the scientific study of objects in space: stars, planets, galaxies and the like.

Earth Sciences: any of various sciences, as geography, geology, or meteorology, that deal with the earth, its composition, or any of its changing aspects.
    Geology the science that deals with the dynamics and physical history of the earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the physical, chemical, and biological changes that the earth has undergone or is undergoing.
    Paleontology is the scientific study of life-forms existing in former geological time periods.

Mathematics while not a science, Mathematics is closely allied to the sciences because of the extensive use of math in science. It is frequently referred to as the language of science, and is the most important and objective means for communicating the results of science.
