- Biology : The science of life — of complex, self-organizing, information-processing systems living in the past, present or future.
- Life : Living systems, of which biologists seek the commonalities distinguishing them from nonliving systems.
- Dynamical system : Add brief definition or description
- Complex system : Add brief definition or description
- Allostasis and allostatic load : The physiological adaptation process to perturbing stressors, which acting long-term may cause chronic illness.
- Biological signalling : The exchange of signals within and between biological systems.
- Hormesis : A quantitative and qualitative dose-response relationship in which the effect at low concentrations occurs in the opposite direction from that expected from the effect observed at higher concentrations.
- Steady state : A situation with constant system properties despite non-vanishing energy flow.
- Equilibrium : Please do not use this term in your topic list, because there is no single article for it. Please substitute a more precise term. See Equilibrium (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.

- Control theory : Add brief definition or description
- Metabolism : The modification of chemical substances by living organisms.
- Physiology : The study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of tissues and how they interact.
- Human physiology : Science of the workings of the human body and its component parts, at many levels and modes of scientific investigation and at many levels in the heirarchy of the human body’s complex and changing organization.
- Physiological stress : Biological consequences of the failure of an organism to respond appropriately to emotional or physical threats to its being, whether actual or imagined.
- Rheostasis (biology) : The biochemical and physiological processes that serve the adaptive needs of an organism facing internal or external environmental challenges through graduated quantitative regulation.
- Apoptosis : Programmed cell death by which cells in a multicellular organism undergo a controlled death.
