What some key contributions that Richard Dawkins made in the field of evolutionary biology?
Joseph Lister, 1st Baron Lister, OM, FRS (5 April 1827 - 10 February 1912) was an English surgeon who promoted the idea of sterile surgery while working at the Glasgow R…oyal Infirmary. He successfully introduced carbolic acid (phenol) to sterilize surgical instruments and to clean wounds, which led to reduced post-operative infections and made surgery safer for patients.
Charles Darwin's contribution to the field of biology was the theory of evolution due to natural selection. This attempts to explain how species adapt to their environment…s, sometimes leading to the development of new species.
he discovered the antiseptic surgery. or in other words, he contributed the sterile surgery which he can use as an English surgeon.
Marcello Malpighi was the seventeenth century scientist who discovered the capillaries in the body using a microscope.
Famous 'Foreign' Biologists Note- the word foreign means 'outside of the native country' so it is impossible to know which scientists are technically foreign. Below is a l…ist of biologists from around the world: Charles Darwin-(1809-1882) England- Evolutionist famous for his theory 'survival of the fittest' Gregor Mendel-(1822-1884)Czech Republic- Genetics, botanist who discovered 'inherited traits' by cross-breeding pea plants Louis Pasteur- (1822-1895) France- Microbiologist who created 'pasteurization' (a process that kills microbes via heat) Roger W Sperry (1913-1994), America- neuropsychologist, winner of the 1981 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his research on the split-brain Robert Hooke-(1635-1703) England - Cytologist who researched cells and actually coined the term 'cell." He also invented the reflecting microscope Anton van Leeuwenhoek-(1632-1723) Holland Cytologist who invented various single lens microscopes and discovered various microbes (protists) Carolus Linnaeus- (1707-1778) Sweden Father of Taxonomy Jane Goodall (1934- present) England- ethologist who studied Chimp behavior- lead authority in primatology John James Audobon (1785-1851) Santo Domingo- ornithologist and inspiration of the Audobon Society- An organization whose goal is the research and protection of bird species Herman August Hagen- (1817-1893), Germany entomologist who worked with neuroptera and odonata (dragonflies) Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852-1934) Spain- the 'father' of neuroscience Austin Roberts (1883-1948), South Africa -zoologist and ornithologist George Sars (1837-1927) Norway -Marine biologist and a pioneer for fisheries science who researched cod populations Floyd Zaiger ( 1926-present ) America Fruit geneticist who created hybrids such as the 'pluot and aprium' Mriganka Sur 1953-present ) India cognitive neuroscientist who researched neuroplasticity Henry Suter- (1841-1918) New Zealand zoologist, naturalist and palaeontologist and malacologist

William Harvey (April 1, 1578 – June 3, 1657) was an English physician who is credited with being the first in the Western world to describe correctly and in exact det…ail the systemic circulation and properties of blood being pumped around the body by the heart.
Robert Koch was the first person to prove that there was a relationship between a bacillus and a disease. He was the first person to isolate the Anthrax Bacillus. He was abl…e to perfect pure-culture techniques. In 1883 he isolated the Tuberculosis and established its role in the disease. In 1883 he discovered the casual organism for cholera and how it is transmitted and also developed a vaccination for rinderpest. He also created Koch's Postulates which state: the organism should always be found in sick animals and never in healthy ones; it must be grown in pure culture; the cultured organism must make a healthy animal sick; and it must be re-isolated from the newly sick animal and re-cultured and still be the same.
He undertook several breeding experiments with peas and thus he deduced the general rules of inheritance. His work was purely phenomenological, as he didn't understand how the… characteristics were being passed down from generation to generation, but his works (when rediscovered) were a good start, as he was among the first biologists to use mathematical methods in his experiments.

Answer: Evolutionary BiologyEvolutionary Biology is the study of how cellgroups have changed tissues in animals in order to adapt to the climate, and how different tissues cam…e together in order to create new organs for that animal. Evolutionary biology is the study of how organisms evolve in response to changing variables in the environment, as well as how things are related to each other.
Paleontology is the study of prehistoric life, including organisms' evolution. By studying paleontology, scientists learn about evolution, therefor contributing to evolutionar…y biology.
Benjamin Cabrera was a Filipino scientist who contributed major breakthroughs in the field of parasitology. He was instrumental in developing drug treatments against disea…ses caused by mosquitoes.
