From the point of view of the physical sciences a living organism is a material system of staggering complexity. As a material object it must conform to all the laws of physics, yet its actual behaviour usually follows patterns which seem altogether alien to the world of physics. So, at the present stage of scientific sophistication one should study those living systems that are as simple as possible, and try to understand the physical principles which are involved in their behavior which is generally known as chemoreception (examples will be discussed shortly).
