- Arcology : A term used to describe a large-scale human habitat, pre-planned, and sometimes of one contiguous structure.
- Asia : The largest continent in both land area (with 30% of Earth's land area) and population (with 4 billion people, or 60% of Earth's population).
- Bacteriophage : A virus that infects bacteria; often called a phage.
- Biodiversity : The study of the range of life forms in a given ecosystem.
- Biophysics : The study of forces and energies in biological systems.
- Cuba : a Communist state made up of a number of islands in the Caribbean.
- Ecological footprint : The sum of all resource-using or waste-producing activities of a biological unit, if converted to units of biologically productive land.
- Edinburgh : The capital of Scotland.
- Environmental geography : Examines interlinkages between human and natural systems.
- Epidemiology : The branch of demography that studies patterns of disease in human or animal populations.
- Ethnic group : A population whose members identify with one another as distinct from others. This usually occurs through a perceived common history, and often also includes shared culture, race, religion, or language.
- Frederick Twort : (1877 – 1950) - English bacteriologist who discovered that bacteriophages are viruses that attack and destroy bacteria.
- Gene flow : The movement of genetic alleles from one population to another. If there is a low gene flow between two populations they may become distinct species.
- Genetics : The study of the inheritance of characteristics, genes and DNA.
- Germany : Federal republic in central Europe (population c. 82.4 million; capital Berlin), with the North Sea, Denmark and the Baltic Sea to the north; Poland and the Czech Republic to the east; Switzerland and Austria to the south; and France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands to the west; founding member of the European Union.
- Habitat : Place where an organism or a biological population normally lives or occurs.
- Landscape ecology : Science of studying and improving the relationship between spatial pattern and ecological processes on a multitude of landscape scales and organizational levels.
- Maharashtra : Add brief definition or description
- Malthusianism : A theory in demography which holds that population expands faster than food supplies and famine will result unless steps are taken to reduce population growth.
- Metapopulation : A group of spatially separated populations of the same species which interact at some level.
- Microsatellite : Polymorphic loci present in nuclear and organellar DNA that consist of repeating units of 1-6 base pairs in length.
- OCLC : A nonprofit, membership, computer library service and research organization, founded in 1967 as the Ohio College Library Center.
- Phage ecology : Study of the interaction of bacteriophages with their environments.
- Plant breeding : The purposeful manipulation of plant species in order to create desired genotypes and phenotypes for specific purposes, such as food production, forestry, and horticulture.
- Pollen : Fine to coarse powder consisting of microgametophytes, which produce the male gametes of seed plants.
- Population ecology : Sub-field of ecology concerning dynamics of species populations and their interactions with the environment.

- Quiverfull : A Protestant, Evangelical movement that advocates large families and no birth control.
- Sex-determination system : A biological process that determines the development of sexual gender.
- Theoretical biology : The study of biological systems by theoretical means.
- Transgenic plant : Plants that have been genetically modified by inserting genes directly into a single plant cell, from a different species.
- Transposon : Blocks of conserved DNA that can occasionally move to different positions within the chromosomes of a cell.
