Biologists have a somewhat different view of mosquitoes, unless of course they are the ones being bitten. But in those times of logic and reason, a biologist can see a mosquito as just one example of the great diversity of life found on Earth.

CONCEPTS Computer Models Scientists use computer models, such as the virus model shown in the image to the left, to study things that could not otherwise be investigated. For example, the chemical structure of a virus’s outer coat cannot be seen, even with an electron microscope. But by using computer models, scientists can better understand viruses and how to attack them. 1 The Study of Life KEY CONCEPT Biologists study life in all its forms. MAIN IDEAS • Earth is home to an incredible diversity of life.
