Hint: Development as a sequential knowledge of biology took place in the era of the famous Greek philosopher Aristotle (384- 322 B.C.). Complete answer: Aristotle revealed his thoughts about various aspects of the life of plants and animals. Therefore, Aristotle is called the Father of biology. He was a great Greek philosopher and polymath. His theory of biology also known as the “Aristotle’s biology” describes five major biological processes, namely, metabolism, temperature regulation, inheritance, information processing and embryogenesis. In the 4th century, Aristotle travelled to Lesvos filled with wildlife. His fascination with what he found there and his fascination is what led to the birth of a new science known as Biology. So, the correct answer is ‘Aristotle’. Note: 1. Georges Cuvier was a French naturalist and zoologist, sometimes referred to as the ‘Founding Father of Palaeontology’. 2.
