Xenobiology is the study of the physical structure, metabolisms and processes of alien lifeforms. Most cultures which have made contact with alien species utilise some form of Xenobiology, often in providing medical aid to alien species. It is a critical field in an advanced multi-species society, although the line between biology and xenobiology depends very much on the point of view of the culture in question.

Xenobiology is a sub discipline of the field of Xenology.
