  1. Zoology is a broad science, so zoologists tend to specialize in a subdivision of this subject. They may branch off into entomology to study insects, or ecology to study animals in their environment. Geology and geography are useful for studying animal evolution and dispersion. Many zoological sciences fall under the field of biology. An understanding of biology, chemistry and physics is needed to analyze how animals affect and contribute to their environments.
