  • Vivarium
    A vivarium (Latin, literally for "place of life"; plural: vivaria or vivariums) is an area, usually enclosed, for keeping and raising animals or plants for observation or research.
  • Negative feedback
    Negative feedback occurs when some function of the output of a system, process, or mechanism is fed back in a manner that tends to reduce the fluctuations in the output, whether caused by changes in the input or by other disturbances.
  • Biological immortality
    Biological immortality refers to a stable or decreasing rate of mortality from senescence, thus decoupling it from chronological age.
  • Transmission electron microscopy
    Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is a microscopy technique in which a beam of electrons is transmitted through an ultra-thin specimen, interacting with the specimen as it passes through it.
  • Scatology
    In medicine and biology, scatology or coprology is the study of feces.
  • Sociobiology
    Sociobiology is a field of scientific study that is based on the hypothesis that social behavior has resulted from evolution and attempts to examine and explain social behavior within that context.
  • Vital signs
    Vital signs (often shortened to just vitals) are a group of the 4 to 6 most important signs that indicate the status of the body’s vital (life-sustaining) functions.
  • Quantum biology
    Quantum biology refers to applications of quantum mechanics and theoretical chemistry to biological objects and problems.
  • Conjoined twins
    Conjoined twins are identical twins joined in utero.
  • Hydroxylapatite
    Hydroxylapatite, also called hydroxyapatite (HA), is a naturally occurring mineral form of calcium apatite with the formula Ca5(PO4)3(OH), but is usually written Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2 to denote that the crystal unit cell comprises two entities.
  • Habitat
    A habitat is an ecological or environmental area that is inhabited by a particular species of animal, plant, or other type of organism.
  • Self-replication
    Self-replication is any behavior of a dynamical system that yields construction of an identical copy of itself.
  • International Prize for Biology
    The International Prize for Biology (国際生物学賞 Kokusai Seibutsugaku-shō) is an annual award for outstanding contribution to the advancement of research in fundamental biology.
  • Biosemiotics
    Biosemiotics (from the Greek bios meaning "life" and semeion meaning "sign") is a growing field of semiotics and biology that studies the production and interpretation of signs and codes in the biological realm.
  • P-Aminobenzoyl-glutamate transporter
    The p-aminobenzoyl-glutamate transporter (AbgT) family (TC# 2.A.68) is a family of transporter proteins belonging to the ion transporter (IT) superfamily.
  • NhaA family
    Na+/H+ antiporter A (NhaA) family (TC# 2.A.33) contains a number of bacterial sodium-proton antiporter (SPAP) proteins.
  • Radioactivity in the life sciences
    Radioactivity can be used in life sciences as a radiolabel to visualise components or target molecules in a biological system.
  • Pseudohypoxia
    Pseudohypoxia refers to increased cytosolic ratio of free NADH to NAD in cells.
  • Polyphenism
    A polyphenic trait is a trait for which multiple, discrete phenotypes can arise from a single genotype as a result of differing environmental conditions.
  • Social Bonding and Nurture Kinship
    Social Bonding and Nurture Kinship: compatibility between cultural and biological approaches is a book on human kinship and social behavior by Maximilian Holland, published in 2012.
  • Gene Disease Database
    In Bioinformatics, a Gene Disease Database is a systematized collection of data, typically structured to model aspects of reality, in a way to comprehend the underlying mechanisms of complex diseases, by understanding multiple composite interactions between phenotype-genotype relationships and gene-disease mechanisms.
  • Avigad Vonshak
    Avigad Vonshak is a professor at the French Associates Institute for Agriculture and Biotechnology of Drylands at the Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel.
  • Sodium-proton antiporter
    Sodium/proton antiporters are essential secondary-active transporters for sodium and pH homeostasis.
  • Betaine transporter
    Proteins of the Betaine/Carnitine/Choline Transporter (BCCT) family (TC# 2.A.15) are found in Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria and archaea.
  • Formate-nitrite transporter
    The Formate-Nitrite Transporter (FNT) Family (TC# 1.A.16) is a family of homologous transmembrane proteins belonging to the Major Intrinsic Protein (MIP) Superfamily.
  • Nucleobase cation symporter-1
    The Nucleobase:Cation Symporter-1 (NCS1) Family (TC# 2.A.39) consists of over 1000 currently sequenced proteins derived from Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, archaea, fungi and plants.

  • Sessility (motility)
    In biology, sessility (in the sense of positional movement or motility) refers to organisms that do not possess a means of self-locomotion and are normally immobile.
  • Trabecular cartilage
    Trabecular cartilages (trabeculae cranii, sometimes simply trabeculae) are paired, rod-shaped cartilages, which develop in the head of the vertebrate embryo.
  • Pursuit predation
    Pursuit predation is a form of predation in which predators give chase to fleeing prey.
  • Bibliography of encyclopedias: biology
    This is a list of encyclopedias as well as encyclopedic and biographical dictionaries published on the subject of biology in any language.
