051

Biologists, Zoologists and Related ScientistsWorkers in this unit group conduct pure research into all forms of life to increase scientific knowledge and applied research to develop practical applications in fields such as medicine, agriculture and forestry. Their functions include: planning and conducting field and laboratory studies of the origin, development, functions, structure, distribution, environment, interrelationships and other aspects of life-forms; co-ordinating, analysing and evaluating data obtained and preparing reports of findings and conclusions for use in such fields as medicine, agriculture, forestry and pharmaceuticals manufacture.

052

Bacteriologists, Pharmacologists and Related ScientistsWorkers in this unit group study the structure, composition, and life processes of humans, animals and micro-organisms and apply their findings to such purposes as prevention of disease in humans and animals, promotion of health and physical fitness and development of animals for economic exploitation. Their functions include: conducting research into the form, structure and other anatomical characteristics of humans and animals, the chemical composition and processes of living organisms, the biological functions and activities of the human organism under normal and abnormal conditions, the nature and characteristics of bacteria and their action on living organisms and dead organic matter, the nature, causes and development of human and animal diseases and parasites, effects of drugs on organs, tissues and life processes of humans and animals, and systems of selective breeding of animals and advanced methods of animal husbandry; developing practical applications of such scientific knowledge in medical public health, agricultural, industrial and other fields

053

Agronomists and Related ScientistsWorkers in this unit group conduct research into field-crop growing, horticulture, forestry and soils and develop improved methods of propagation, cultivation, harvesting, pest control and related farming activities. Their functions include: conducting research into field and horticultural crops and forestry to develop new and improved methods giving higher yields and better quality; planning and directing forest planting, care and exploitation of forest stands; studying the characteristics, use capabilities and productivity of soils and applying findings to development of improved agricultural, horticultural and forestry practices; advising farmers on farming methods and problems.

054

Life Sciences TechniciansWorkers in this unit group perform technical tasks, normally under the direction and supervision of life scientists, contributory to research to increase scientific knowledge in the life sciences and to develop industrial, agricultural, medical and other practical applications. Their functions include: preparing biological, botanical, medical and similar specimens and growing cultures of micro-organisms for tests, analyses and experiments; using laboratory instruments and other equipment to carry out, under supervision or according to instructions, tests, analyses and experiments and recording observations, results and other relevant information; performing other technical tasks to assist life scientists in research and in development of practical applications of life sciences, including sciences of biology, botany, zoology, anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, bacteriology, pathology, pharmacology, agronomy, horticulture and silviculture.
