aquatic: An adjective that describes water.
astronomy: A field of science that deals with celestial bodies, the universe, and the physical universe. People who work in this field are called astronomers.
biologist: Scientists involved in biological research.
data: Facts and/or statistics collected together for analysis. They are not necessarily organized in a way that gives them meaning. For digital information (the type stored by computers), these data are typically numbers stored in binary code and represented as strings of 0’s and 1’s.
drone: A remote-controlled pilotless aircraft or missile.
eel: A fish with a snake-like body without scales. Many migrate from freshwater to saltwater during spawning season. Note: Electric eel is not a true eel, but a type of knifefish.
extinct: an adjective describing a species that has no living members.
field: Research fields such as: Her field of research is biology.
freshwater: A noun or adjective that describes a body of water with very low salinity. This is the type of water used for drinking water and as the constituent water of most inland lakes, ponds, rivers, streams, and groundwater.
hydrophone: A microphone that detects sound waves underwater.
indigenous: Grows wild in a certain region. (in anthropology) An adjective (and capitalization) that describes people who have lived in an area for many years and developed a culture that reflects the resources, climate, and ecosystem of that place.

new zealand: An island nation in the southwest Pacific Ocean, approximately 1,500 kilometers (approximately 900 miles) east of Australia. Its “mainland”, consisting of the North and South Islands, is highly volcanically active. Additionally, the country has many much smaller offshore islands.
paleontology: The field of science concerned with ancient fossilized plants and animals. Scientists who study them are known as paleontologists.
Physics: Scientific study of the nature and nature of matter and energy. Classical physics explains the nature and nature of matter and energy based on descriptions such as Newton’s laws of motion. Quantum physics, a field of study that emerged later, is a way to more precisely describe the motion and behavior of matter. Scientists who work in such fields are known as physicists.
population: (in biology) a group of individuals (of the same species) living in a particular area.
Ocean: Ocean (or area that is part of the ocean). Unlike lakes and streams, sea water, or ocean water, is salty.
statistics: The practice or science of collecting and analyzing large amounts of numerical data and interpreting its meaning. Much of this work involves reducing errors that can result from random variation. Professionals working in this field are called statisticians.
supernatural: Things thought to be caused by unnatural forces such as gods or ghosts.
tool: An object made or obtained by humans or other animals that they use to accomplish some purpose, such as reaching food, defending themselves, or grooming themselves.
wood: A porous, fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees, shrubs, and other woody plants.
zoology: Study of animals and their habitats. Scientists who work on this research are known as zoologists.
