organo-, organ-

(Greek: an organized structure; pertaining to a specific bodily part with a specific function or set of functions; instrument, tool, implement)

A reference to the biological activity of metal complexes and nonmetal compounds based on elements other than carbon; as contrasted with bio-organic.
bio-organic, bioorganic
1. A reference to describe a carbon-based (organic) compound produced by a living organism or of biological importance.
2. Relating to the composition and biological activity of carbon-based compounds; especially, those of laboratory rather than to biogenic origins.
chemoorganotrophic, chemo-organotrophic; chemoorganotroph, chemo-organotroph
1. A reference to organisms that obtain energy from oxidation/reduction reactions and use organic electron donors; chemoheterotrophic.
2. An organism that depends on organic chemicals for its energy and carbon.
Referring to an organic cosmos (characterized by living things); such as, a cosmorganic evolution.
electric organ
1. The generating and sensory organs of the electric field in the electric fish, composed of electroplaques and located at the base of long, low-resistance, jelly-filled canals that radiate through the body from the head and monitor the electric field at all points over the body.
2. An organ consisting of rows of electroplaques which produce an electric discharge.
electric organs
Modifications in muscle tracts in some fish, giving them the ability to communicate an electric shock.

Such physical organs are found in electric eels, electric rays, and the African catfish.

electronic organ, electrone
1. An instrument in which musical tones that are generated by electronically driven reeds are processed, amplified, and passed through a set of loud speakers.
2. A musical instrument that uses electronic circuits to produce music similar to that of a pipe organ.
3. An electrophonic instrument played by means of a keyboard in which sounds are produced and amplified by any of various electronic or electrical methods.
4. The electronic counterpart of the pipe organ where all tones and tone variations; such as, vibrato, tremolo, etc., are produced by electronic circuits instead of by pipes.
electro-organic chemistry, electroorganic chemistry
The branch of chemistry dealing with the electrochemistry of organic compounds.
female organs of reproduction
The various organs of reproduction include the following:
  • The ovaries, which produce eggs (ova) and female hormones.
  • The Fallopian tubes, which transport the egg from the ovaries to the uterus.
  • The uterus, which receives the egg for fertilization and provides a growth environment for the developing embryo and fetus.
  • The cervix, the lower, narrow part of the uterus that opens into the vagina; and the vagina.
  • The muscular canal that extends from the cervix to the outside of the body and enables sperm to enter the female reproductive tract.
Peculiar to a particular organ.
inorganic chemistry
The branch of chemistry which deals with reactions and properties of all chemical elements and their compounds, excluding hydrocarbons; but usually including carbides and other simple carbon compounds.

olfactory organ (s) (noun), olfactory organs (pl)
The part of the body that is involved in the detection of smells which consist of a group of sensory receptors that respond to air-borne or water-borne chemicals: Vertebrates possess a pair of olfactory organs in the mucous membrane lining the upper part of the nose, which opens to the exterior via the external nostrils.

Chemicals from the environment are dissolved in the mucus secreted by the olfactory organs and is transmitted to the brain by the receptors via the olfactory nerve.

Olfactory organs are found on the antennae in insects and in various positions in other invertebrates.
