Auxology is a meta-term covering the study of all aspects of human physical growth; though it is also a fundamental of biology, generally. Auxology is a highly multi-disciplinary science involving health sciences / medicine (pediatrics, general practice, endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, physiology, epidemiology), and to a lesser extent: nutrition, genetics, anthropology, anthropometry, ergonomics, history, economic history, economics, socioeconomics, sociology, public health, and psychology, among others.

Etymology

Auxology: aux-, pertaining to growth, from Greek auxē, "to increase"; -o-, generic phoenetic combining form, here denoting relationship to growth, stimulation, or acceleration; -logy, pertaining to the study of or science of, from Middle English -logie, from Old French, from Latin -logia, from Greek -logiā, from legein, "to speak", and -logos "word", "speech" and "one who deals with", thus "the character or department of one who speaks or treats of (a certain subject)".
