Proposal: Biology

I am an astronomer, and keen to learn from the biology experts to inform my astrobiology. Should discussions of astrobiology be under astronomy or biology?

I'd typically say biology.

Most questions around astrobiology will, I imagine, focus on the conditions for life in extreme conditions, the ways life can organize itself and methods of reproduction. These are all questions a biology community is better placed to answer.

    I agree. There is a huge body of work on extremophiles, for example, which I'd like to tap into. – Poshpaws Jul 5 '11 at 15:31
