[Amatuer Programmer] Is there an instructional purpose to “<!DOCTYPE html>”?

I'm new to HTML programming though I have many years of experience using BBCode, so I know the basics of programming. I'm wondering, what does <!DOCTYPE html> actually do? The reason I ask is because when I remove this line, nothing happens. So is it necessary?
