In Britain and France, it took at least a decade for the full proportions and the fundamental character of the change to become widely apparent. Only those close to the academic scene would have been likely to recognize the signals that heralded it. 35 In Britain, what was later seen as a landmark event was the promotion of the Natural Sciences Tripos at Cambridge to an honors degree in its own right in 1861. 36 Despite the conviction that what was being promoted was a radically different creed, there was a time lag in relabeling.
The biomedical sciences were the new frontier and the motor of change in medical practice; the environmental sciences, on a much smaller scale, held the key to a newly emergent challenge – environmental damage and species loss on a global scale. This restructuring of biology and medicine gained force in the last quarter of the century as molecular biology and the new genetics moved from analytical acumen to experimental syntheses and came to be linked more closely with the large pharmaceutical and agricultural companies that, partly through repeated mergers, had come to shape medical and agricultural practices worldwide.
