- Zoology : The scientific study of animals.
- Australopithecus afarensis : An extinct hominid species, which to some, is considered to be the "missing link" in human evolution.

- Morphometry : The quantitative study of shapes.
- Musculoskeletal manipulations : Physical movement of body tissues, muscles and bones, by hands or equipment, to improve health and circulation, relieve fatigue, or promote healing.
- Neuroanatomy : The branch of anatomy that studies the anatomical organization of the nervous system.
- Plant (organism) : A eukaryotic organism, grouped into the kingdom Plantae, that typically synthesizes nutrients through photosynthesis and possesses the inability to voluntarily move.
- Symbion : Genus of aquatic animals, less than ½ mm wide, found living symbiotically to the mouthparts of cold-water lobsters, on whose leftovers it feeds.
