Online Biology Dictionary


Enter your search term here:

Tip 1: The finder also works as a reverse dictionary. For example, searching with yellow will locate such terms as elastin, bilirubin, xanthochroia, and xanthous, which have the word yellow in their definitions, as well as the prefixes chloro-, flavo-, ictero-, luteo-, and xantho-. When you click on the Search button, links to each match found to your search query will then be displayed. Click on the links to access the information you seek.

Note: Our terminology finder is provided by Google, so their ads may appear beside your search results. Tip 2: If you don't get a result, try using a query that's a synonym (e.g., instead of carry, try searching with the word bear).

 Terms starting with:
