The science and technology of growing living things (plants and animals) for human consumption or use as pets, ornament, food, fiber, or construction material. Includes Forestry, Horticulture and Soil Science.
This category includes a wide range and variety of topics dealing with alternative or "out of the mainstream" science. This includes unexplained phenomena, alternate theories, strange animals or people, and many others. Try to find the single best subcategory for your site.

Psychic phenomena, UFOs, ghosts, and reincarnation are related subjects that sometimes are addressed on Alternative Science websites listed in this category, but they are primarily covered in other categories. If you are submitting a site on one of these topics, consider submitting to one of the following categories, as appropriate:

Society/Paranormal/Psychic/
Society/Paranormal/UFOs/
Society/Paranormal/Ghosts/
Society/Religion_and_Spirituality/Reincarnation/

Science is constantly reshaping itself through unexpected observations, new ideas, and revisions to old theories. While terms like "anomalies" or "alternative" may seem pejorative from an orthodox perspective, from an historical view these are the topics are the very life-blood of science. We must have heretics and revolutionaries challenging our beliefs, and advancing the state of the believable, otherwise science will stagnate into dogma.

Sites about chemical businesses or industry are not listed in this category. See Business/Chemicals and Business/Industrial_Goods_and_Services/Engineering/Chemical instead.

Sites about chemical engineering should go to Science/Technology/Chemical_Engineering.

Chemistry is typically defined as the science that studies the composition, structure, and transformation of matter. It has been called "the central science" because of the way it is related with all the other sciences. Chemistry bridges the gap between physics and biology; it is a "helper science" in almost many technical disciplines; and it occupies a prominent position in industry between the extraction of raw materials and the manufacture of finished products. Of course, it is chemists who call it this way; other scientists may have different perspectives. Chemistry is also distinguished from some other sciences because it creates its own object of study: chemists can imagine and create new compounds that have never existed in nature, so they are not constrained to what already exists, but only to what can be done.

Submit sites about the study of the nature of space and astral bodies in Astrophysics. But, webpages that offer general statistics and data about the universe should be submitted to Astronomy.

"Physics is the study and application of the fundamental laws of nature, including the laws of motion, gravity, electromagnetism, heat, and microscopic interactions. These laws govern the behavior of objects at all scales, from the smallest subatomic particles to the entire observable universe. In between, physicists study nuclear reactions, the interactions of atoms with light, properties of solids, chaotic dynamics of fluids, and the evolution of stars and galaxies, among many other applications."

If this doesn't tickle your fancy, there is always the quote from Rutherford: "In science, there is only physics; all the rest is stamp collecting."
