The discipline of environmental biophysics relates to the study of energy and mass exchange between living organisms and their environment. The study of environmental biophysics probably began earlier than that of any other science, since knowledge of organism-environment interaction provided a key to survival and progress. Systematic study of the science and recording of experimental results, however, goes back only a few hundred years. Recognition of environmental biophysics as a discipline has occurred just within the past few decades.
