Biological material

Biological material may refer to:
  • Tissue (biology)
    Tissue (biology)
    Tissue is a cellular organizational level intermediate between cells and a complete organism. A tissue is an ensemble of cells, not necessarily identical, but from the same origin, that together carry out a specific function. These are called tissues because of their identical functioning...

    , or just tissue
  • Biomass
    Biomass, as a renewable energy source, is biological material from living, or recently living organisms. As an energy source, biomass can either be used directly, or converted into other energy products such as biofuel....

    , living or dead biological matter, often plants grown as fuel
  • Biomass (ecology)
    Biomass (ecology)
    Biomass, in ecology, is the mass of living biological organisms in a given area or ecosystem at a given time. Biomass can refer to species biomass, which is the mass of one or more species, or to community biomass, which is the mass of all species in the community. It can include microorganisms,...

    , the total mass of living biological matter
  • Biomaterial
    A biomaterial is any matter, surface, or construct that interacts with biological systems. The development of biomaterials, as a science, is about fifty years old. The study of biomaterials is called biomaterials science. It has experienced steady and strong growth over its history, with many...

  • Biocompatible material
    Biocompatible material
    In surgery, a biocompatible material is a synthetic or natural material used to replace part of a living system or to function in intimate contact with living tissue. Biocompatible materials are intended to interface with biological systems to evaluate, treat, augment or replace any tissue, organ...

    s and bioapplicable materials
  • Biomolecule
    A biomolecule is any molecule that is produced by a living organism, including large polymeric molecules such as proteins, polysaccharides, lipids, and nucleic acids as well as small molecules such as primary metabolites, secondary metabolites, and natural products...

    , a chemical compound that naturally occurs in living organisms
  • Biotic material
    Biotic material
    Biotic material or biological derived material is any natural material that is originated from living organisms. Most such materials contain carbon and are capable of decay....

    , from living things
  • Bio-based material
    Bio-based material
    A bio-based material is simply an engineering material made from substances derived from living matter. These materials are sometimes referred to as biomaterials, but this word also has another meaning. Strictly the definition could include many common materials such as wood and leather, but it...

    , a processed biotic material
  • Cellular component
    Cellular component
    Cellular component refers to the unique, highly organized substances and substances of which cells, and thus living organisms, are composed. Examples include membranes, organelles, proteins, and nucleic acids...

    , material and substances of which cells (and thus living organisms) are composed
  • Organic matter
    Organic matter
    Organic matter is matter that has come from a once-living organism; is capable of decay, or the product of decay; or is composed of organic compounds...

    , derived from living things or containing carbon
  • Viable material, capable of living, developing, or germinating under favorable conditions. (see: viability selection)
  • Bodily fluid
    Bodily fluid
    Body fluid or bodily fluids are liquids originating from inside the bodies of living people. They include fluids that are excreted or secreted from the body as well as body water that normally is not.Body fluids include:-Body fluids and health:...
