French Biology Vocabulary

vocabulaire de la biologie

On this page you will find an introductory list of French biology (la biologie) vocabulary words. Biology as an area of study is extremely broad and this list touches upon some of its main themes: cells (la cellule), evolution (l’évolution) and genetics (la génétique). Most of these science words are very close to English as they come from Latin and are therefore easy to learn!
