In taming any planet, especially one so alien to human life, research in the natural sciences is crucial for survival. Perhaps none moreso, biology is one of the oldest means of understanding our surroundings. Shortly after planetfall, colonial biologists were seeking to make sense of the flora and fauna of this world in every discipline from epigenetics to paleontology. Among their million tasks was the effort to adapt Earth lifeforms to this new ecology, or at the least develop means whereby the familiar domesticated plants and animals could contribute to human health and well-being here. Hence, many settlements now have greenhouses, vivariums, botanical gardens, and specialized labs integrated into the civic landscape.
