      Definitely biology, then chemistry and physics the least. But I didnt really like the plant side of biology much, always preferred the human biology.

      Rebecca and I agree – biology I find the most interesting and fulfilling, followed by chemistry and lastly physics. Favourite bits of biology for me are anatomy, physiology and evolutionary science.

      Biology was definitely my favourite, then physics and then chemistry. My favourite parts of biology were almost the human topics, but I did enjoy learning about photosynthesis and plants too. My least favourite part of biology was all the stuff about managing woodlands and storing seeds. Not that I don’t like woodlands. 🙂

      I definitely love biology most, then chemistry and finally physics! I could never quite get my head around some of the concepts in physics, whereas Biology is very much ‘here and now’ stuff. I love constantly being amazed by the workings of the human body! Can you believe the billions of cells we are all made of and actually how it is incredible that more doesn’t go wrong when you think of all the processes going on in each of those cells?!

      I used to be best at chemistry but liked biology better and now I work with both those and physics.
      Biology for the cells I work with. Chemistry provides the fluorescent probes (coloured chemicals) to attach to the cells and physics for the lasers we use to detect and analyse the first two.
      So now my answer would be a mix of all 3.

      Good question, and even though I deal with Biology and Chemistry much much more, I really love physics!

      I like looking at the physical nature of everything for instance physics is the study of matter, and when we can understand how/why matter behaves in a fashion, we can understand more about the Biological mechanisms and reasons for them!

      Not to mention the fascinating topics such as string theory, parallel universes and space!!

      Biology. It’s the one I know more about, but still gives me the feeling of “Wow/Huh?” when I learn about some of the neat adaptations evolution has managed to find.
