    Does "that studies" has the same meaning as "studying"?

    Is that studies the same as studying?
    Ecology is a branch of science that studies the relation between humans and the environment.
    Is this sentence also possible:
    Ecology is a branch of science studying the relation between humans and the environment.

    I wouldn't use either one. That's because it is people that study things. Perhaps:

    Ecology is a scientific discipline dealing with the relationship between plants and animals in a given area.

    Write Is "that studies" the same as "studying"?

    Do you see how enclosing the words you're asking about in quotation marks makes the question easier to read? You did it correctly in the thread's title, but you should have written have, not "has".
