Is There a Difference Between a Biologist and a Biological Scientist? There is one difference but it is very subtle that some say there is no difference at all. A biologist tends to study ecology, zoology and plant sciences such as botany - the "arts" end of science. Biological science will tend to study the less practical and more "hard science" based ends such as microbiology, genetics and biochemistry.
