Organizations are goal-directed entities which have been designed as deliberately structured and coordinated dynamic systems that connect with the external environment. Organizational theory is the study of structure, function and design of organization. It aims to solve practical problems, maximize production efficiency and make organization better function and develop. Organizational theory contains various aspects. The history, development, and thoughts of organizational theory and its applications in biology and ecology were described in present paper. We held that more studies should be conducted to apply organizational theory in natural sciences as biology and ecology.
