Human Biology, or rather human biological sciences, are focused on exploring the human body (C. Zins, 2011).

Humans and chimpanzees share the same kingdom (Animalia), phylum (Chordata), class (Mammalia), order (Primates), family (Hominidae, sub-family: Homininae), and tribe (Hominini).

We differ in genus (chimpanzees: Pan; humans: Homo) and species (chimpanzees: Pan troglodytes; humans: Homo sapiens). This is the big difference that makes us who we are.
  (C. Zins, 2011).

Biology vs. human biology. For cultural and religious considerations the living world is studied in two pillars. Pillar 5 focuses on the non-human realm, pillar 6 on the human realm. However, from a scientific point of view biology and human biology are interrelated. They are part of the same broader discipline (field).

Human biology’s main branches are philosopy of human biology, anatomy (study of the structure of the human body), biochemistry (study of form and function at the chemical levels), cell biology or cytology (study of cells) and molecular biology (study of molecules), developmental biology (study of the processes by which humans grow and develop), embryology (study of the early development), evolutionary biology, in particular, human evolution (study of the origin of the human species and its development over time), genetics (study of genes; heredity and variations in humans), histology (study of biological tissues), immunology (study of the immune system), and physiology (study of function of organs and systems).
(C. Zins, 2011).
