Fr.: biodiversité   

The → variety of → plant and → animal → species in a particular → environment.

bio-; → diversity.

bioinformatics
  زیست-ازداییک   
zist-azdâyik

Fr.: bioinformatique   

The retrieval and analysis of biochemical and biological data using mathematics and computer science, as in the study of genomes (Dictionary.com).

bio-; → informatics.

biologist
  زیست‌شناس   
zistšenâs (#)

Fr.: biologiste   

An expert or specialist in biology.

Biologist, from → biology + → -ist.

biology
  زیست‌شناسی   
zistženâsi (#)

Fr.: biologie   

The study of living organisms and their interactions with the non living world.

Biology, from → bio- + → -logy.

bioluminescence
  زیست-فروزستی   
zist-foruzesti

Fr.: bioluminescence   

The production and emission of light by a living organism as the result of a chemical reaction (→ chemiluminescence). In other words, bioluminescence is chemiluminescence from living organisms. It is widespread in the marine environment, but rare in terrestrial and especially freshwater environments.

chemi-; → luminescence.

biophysicist
  زیست‌فیزیکدان   
zistfizikdân (#)

Fr.: biophysicien   

A specialist in → biophysics.

bio-; → physicist.

biophysics
  زیست‌فیزیک   
zistfizik (#)

Fr.: biophysique   

The science that deals with biological structures and processes involving the application of physical principles and methods.

Biophysics, from → bio- + → physics.

Zistfizik, from zist-, → bio- + fizikphysics.

biosphere
  زیست‌سپهر   
zistsepehr (#)

Fr.: biosphère   

The part of a planet or moon within which life can occur. It may include the crust, oceans, and atmosphere.

Biosphere, from → bio- + → sphere.

Zistsepehr, from zizt-, → bio-, + sepehrsphere.

Biot-Savart law
  قانون ِ بی‌یو-ساوار   
qânun-e Biot-Savart (#)

Fr.: loi de Biot-Savart   

The → magnetic field due to → electric current flowing in a long straight conductor is directly proportional to the current and inversely proportional to the distance of the point of observation from the conductor. The law is derivable from → Ampere's law, but was obtained experimentally by the authors.

Named after the French physicists Jean-Baptiste Biot (1774-1862) and Félix Savart (1791-1841); → law.

biotic environment
  پرگیر ِ زیستیک   
pargir-e zistik

Fr.: environnement biotique   

Ecology: The environment consisting of living organisms, which interact with each other and with their non-living surroundings.

Biotic adj. of → biotics; of → environment.

biotics
  زیستیک   
zistik

Fr.: biotique   

The science concerned with the functions of life, or vital activity and force.

From biotic, from Gk. biotikos "of or pertaining to life," from → bio- + -tic a suffix equivalent in meaning to → -ic.

bipolar
  دوقطبی   
doqotbi (#)

Fr.: bipolaire   

Having two poles; having two opposite main structures or components.

Bipolar, from → bi- + → polar, from → pole.

Doqotbi, from do-, → bi-, + qotbi, → polar, from qotb, → pole.

bipolar flow
  تچان ِ دوقطبی

Same as → bipolar outflow.

bipolar; → flow.

bipolar jet
  شان ِ دوقطبی   
šân-e doqotbi

Fr.: jet bipolaire   

One of two beams of high-temperature, ionized gas ejected in two opposite directions associated with a → protostar. The collimated jets, a consequence of the → accretion process, can extend over distances of several → light-years.

bipolar; → jet.

bipolar nebula
  میغ ِ دوقطبی   
miq-e doqotbi

Fr.: nébuleuse bipolaire   

An interstellar cloud of ionized gas with two main lobes which lie symmetrically on either side of a central star. The bipolar shape is generally due to the ejection of material by the central star in opposing directions.

bipolar; → nebula.

bipolar outflow
  ا ُستچان ِ دوقطبی   
ostacân-e doqotbi

Fr.: flot bipolaire   

A flow of gaseous material in two opposite directions emanating from protostellar regions or from → evolved stars during the early post-→ AGB evolution. In protostellar regions → molecular outflows are pushed by → bipolar jets.
