Djornt has a long history of biologists. Plastic City houses the Academy of Nature, the largest university for biologists on the continent, and perhaps the world. These academics of natural history travel all over the place studying and collecting specimens for study. It was biologists working at the Academy of Nature who first discovered the principles of evolution by natural selection, evolution by unnatural selection, and evolution by supernatural selection, which revolutionized the field of biology forever. The Academy of Nature also has a medical research wing and a technology research wing, where biological specimens are studied for possible medicinal properties and also possible new technologies. Electricity was discovered here when scientists studied the properties of Storm Dog paws, and new kinds of plastics were developed after studying the cells of the Dirt Eater. In the medical wing, antibiotics were first discovered from a sample of fungi taken from the island of Kashin.
