What is the "Scientific method".

What is science?

Science is the concerted human effort to understand, or to understand better, the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding. It is done through observation of natural phenomena, and/or through experimentation that tries to simulate natural processes under controlled conditions. (There are, of course, more definitions of science.)

What is ecology?

The scientific method is a process that starts by asking a question, doing research afterwards, conducting a hypothesis, testing it with an experiment, analysing results and drawing conclusions, so if the hypothesis is true, they report the results, if not they should try again!
