Barnack Hills & Holes National Nature Reserve
BARNACK HILLS half of the surviving limestone grassland in Cambridgeshire is found here. In 2002 it was designated as a Special Area of Conservation , to protect the orchid rich grassland as part of the Natura 2000 network of sites throughout the European Union . The unique hummocky landscape was created by quarrying for limestone. The stone, sometimes known as Barnack Rag , was a valuable building stone first exploited by the Romans over 1,500 years ago. Most famously, stone from Barnack was used to build Peterborough and Ely Cathedrals. By the year 1500 however, all the useful stone had been removed and the bare heaps of limestone rubble gradually became covered by the rich carpet of wild flowers that can be seen today. The limestone was originally formed in Jurassic times. It is made from the remains of billions of tiny sea-creatures which lived in a warm shallow sea that covered the area 150 million years ago

Bedford Purlieus National Nature Reserve
BEDFORD PURLIEUS is 211 hectares (520 acres) of ancient woodland in Cambridgeshire, in the United Kingdom. It is a national nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest owned and managed by the Forestry Commission . Situated in Thornhaugh civil parish, 10 km south of Stamford and 14 km (8.7 mi) west of Peterborough , the wood is within the Peterborough unitary authority area of Cambridgeshire, and borders Northamptonshire . In Roman times it was an iron smelting centre, during the medieval period it was in the Royal Forest of Rockingham , and later became part of the estates of the Duke of Bedford . Bedford Purlieus appears to have been continuously wooded at least from Roman times, and probably since the ice receded. The woodland may have the richest range of vascular plants of any English lowland wood. It acquired particular significance in the 1970s as an early subject for the historical approach to ecology and woodland management

List Of Sites Of Special Scientific Interest In Cambridgeshire
Cambridgeshire is a county in eastern England, with an area of 339,746 hectares (1,312 sq mi) and a population as of mid-2015 of 841,218. It is crossed by the Nene and the Great Ouse rivers. The University of Cambridge , which was founded in the thirteenth century, made the county one of the country's most important intellectual centres. A large part of the county is in The Fens , and drainage of this habitat, which probably commenced in the Roman period and was largely completed by the seventeenth century, considerably increased the area available for agriculture. The main manufacturing area is Peterborough . The administrative county was formed in 1974, incorporating most of the historic county of Huntingdonshire . Local government is divided between Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council , which is a separate unitary authority

Biological
BIOLOGY is the natural science that involves the study of life and living organisms , including their physical and chemical structure , function , development and evolution . Modern biology is a vast field, composed of many branches . Despite the broad scope and the complexity of the science, there are certain unifying concepts that consolidate it into a single, coherent field. In general, biology recognizes the cell as the basic unit of life, genes as the basic unit of heredity , and evolution as the engine that propels the creation of new species . It is also understood that all organisms survive by consuming and transforming energy and by regulating their internal environment
