Hi caller,

Wikipedia defines silviculture as follows

Silviculture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silviculture

Silviculture is the practice of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health, and quality of forests to meet diverse needs and values.

From memory, this definition is accurate.

Biology is defined as:

Biology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biology

Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy ...

In my own words, Silviculture uses biology as its basis of practice. The resource is managed to achieve certain objectives, according to the way the plant and its associates function.
