Biological Monitoring -- See Environmental Monitoring The monitoring of the level of toxins, chemical pollutants, microbial contaminants, or other harmful substances in the environment or workplace by measuring the amounts of these toxicants in the bodies of people and animals in that environment, among other methods. It also includes the measurement of ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE. Levels in humans and animals are used as indicators of toxic levels of undesirable chemicals.
Biological Oscillators -- See Biological Clocks The physiological mechanisms that govern the rhythmic occurrence of certain biochemical, physiological, and behavioral phenomena in plants and animals.
Biological Pump -- See Membrane Transport Proteins Membrane proteins whose primary function is to facilitate the transport of molecules across a biological membrane. Included in this broad category are proteins involved in active transport (BIOLOGICAL TRANSPORT, ACTIVE), facilitated transport and ION CHANNELS.
Biological Science Disciplines Trends : Life sciences and related fields : trends relevant to the Biological Weapons Convention / Committee on Trends in Science and Technology Relevant to the Biological Weapons Convention : an International Workshop, Board on Life Sciences, Division of Earth and Life Studies, National Research Council of the National Academies ; in cooperation with Chinese Academy of Sciences [and others].
Biological Sciences -- See Biological Science Disciplines All of the divisions of the natural sciences dealing with the various aspects of the phenomena of life and vital processes. The concept includes anatomy and physiology, biochemistry and biophysics, and the biology of animals, plants, and microorganisms. It should be differentiated from BIOLOGY, one of its subdivisions, concerned specifically with the origin and life processes of living organisms.
