is a multidisciplinary academic field that integrates physical, biological and information sciences to the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems.
Environmental Science
is a discipline of science that applies existing scientific knowledge to develop more practical applications, such as technology or inventions for the benefit of human kind.
Applied Science
the sciences concerned with the study of inanimate natural objects, including physics, chemistry, astronomy, and related subjects.
Physical Science
the scientific study of human society and social relationships.
Social Science
the branch of social science that deals with the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services and management or a certain place.
Economics

Physics
the branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines, and structures.
Engineering
is the scientific study of the the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting one's behavior.
Psychology
the branch of science that deals with the identification of the substances of which matter is composed; the investigation of their properties and the ways in which they interact, combine, and change; and the use of these processes to form new substances.

Biological Science
the study of living organisms, divided into many specialized fields that cover their morphology, physiology, anatomy, behavior, origin, and distribution.
Biology
the scientific study of plants, including their physiology, structure, genetics, ecology, distribution, classification, and economic importance.
Botany
