- Biodiversity : The study of the range of life forms in a given ecosystem.
- Biogeography : The study of patterns of species distribution and the processes that result in such patterns.
- Biology : The science of life — of complex, self-organizing, information-processing systems living in the past, present or future.
- Cat : A feline, particularly the domesticated feline, Felis catus, a small carnivorous mammal.
- Death : State of thermodynamic equilibrium achieved after the end of life.
- Dinosaur : widely distributed and diverse group of generally large reptiles that lived from approximately 215 to 65 million years ago.
- Douglas Adams : (1952–2001) English author, comic radio dramatist, and musician, best known as the author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
- Evolution : A change over time in the proportions of individual organisms differing genetically.
- Fern : are a group of seedless vascular plants that make up the class Pteropsida, closely allied to horsetails and whisk ferns, also considered to be ferns, with which form the division Pterophyta, that evolved in the Devonian period comprising about 12,000 species.
- Fossilization (palaeontology) : The set of geological processes that convert organic remains into fossils.
- Fungus : A eukaryotic organism, classified into the kingdom Fungi, that is heterotrophic and digest their food externally, and may be a yeast, mold, or mushroom.
- Geologic ages of earth history : Measurement of the geologic history of the earth which can be broadly classified into two periods: the Precambrian supereon and the Phanerozoic eon.
- Global warming : The increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans in recent decades and its projected continuation.
- Guam : Civilian-governed U.S. territory in the geographic Mariana Islands of Micronesia but not part of the political Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands; major U.S. military base, including a prepositioning ship squadron and Anderson Air Force Base for bomber aircraft and air refueling tankers, growing with the transfer of forces from Okinawa.
- Immunology : The study of all aspects of the immune system in all animals.
- India : Republic in South Asia; the world's largest democracy. Borders Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, China, Nepal, Pakistan
- Island Biogeography : Biogeography that attempts to establish and explain the factors that affect the species richness of natural communities, and distribution of plants and animals on islands.
- Landscape ecology : Science of studying and improving the relationship between spatial pattern and ecological processes on a multitude of landscape scales and organizational levels.
- Mammal : A warm-blooded animal with a backbone which also has hair, and produces milk to feed its young.
- Orchid : Any plant classified under Orchidaceae, one of the largest plant families and the largest among Monocotyledons.
- Penguin : Large-bodied flightless birds found from their southernmost range on Antarctica to north on the Galapagos Islands at the equator.
- Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh : The husband of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.
- Stratigraphy : The interdisciplinary science field that describes all rock bodies that form the Earth's crust and the manner in which they are organised into distinctive units that are then mapped.
- Sustainable development : Pattern of resource use that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for future generations.
