Biology is like economy blog

When we apply such economic concepts as costs, efficiency, productivity, management, planning, programming, forecast etc. to activity of an individual living body or interaction between its natural parts like cells, organs or systems of organs, we are in the sphere of bionomics because in that case we explain biology in terms of economy.
But biology is a complex many-sided discipline. So is bionomics. Since bionomics is the comparative bioeconomic analysis then it must have as many sections as biology does itself. For example, the cooperation and coordination between the cells inside of a single organism results in more or less effective behavior of that entire single organism which is essential for its survival in struggle for life. This subject includes such biological subdisciplines as anatomy, physiology, psychology etc. and belongs to the sphere of microbiology. So, in this case, we actualy compare that microbiological economy and a section of the traditional human economy called microeconomics. Consequently, the section of bionomics which deals with this kind of comparison must be called microbionomics.
On the next level of organization the nature consists in different forms of social communities like ants, bees, lions etc. These forms of life are studied by a subdiscipline called sociobiology. All of the social communities regardless of the basic form of life have their own economy too. Sociobiological economy is closer to the traditional human economy because in this case they are both on the same level and cooperation takes place between multicellular individual organisms and not between cells of a single multicellular individual. This kind of comparison including all forms of competition must be studied by another bionomical subdiscipline called industrial bionomics. And, finally, the bionomical subdiscipline that deals with the comparison between the natural ecosystem and the human macroeconomics must be called macrobionomics.
