3. Referring to something that grows or occurs only in the presence of molecular oxygen: Bacteria are known to be aerobic thriving only in the presence of oxygen.
4. Regarding exercises that are to improve the effectiveness of the cardiovascular system in a person's body: Aerobic exercises, like running, can speed up respiration and heart rates, but weightlifting is not an aerobic activity.
aerobics (s) (noun) (no pl)
An active exercise program done with music and often in a class or group: Aerobics is a system of physical conditioning to enhance circulatory and respiratory efficiency that involves vigorous and sustained exercise, like jogging, swimming, or cycling, and thereby improving the body's use of oxygen.
aerobiotic (adjective), more aerobiotic, most aerobiotic
A reference to or characterized by aerobiosis; aerobic: Aerobiotic life of bacteria can only take place when air or oxygen is present.
aerodromic (adjective) (not comparable)
Descriptive of an airfield: Jenny wanted to go to the aerodromic field, especially the one equipped with housing and other facilities that were used for flying purposes.
aerodynamic (adjective), more aerodynamic, most aerodynamic
Regarding the reduction or minimization of the drag when flying through air: The wings and bodies of airplanes have an aerodynamic shape.
aerometric (adjective), more aerometric, most aerometric
Pertaining to any measurement of physical features or characteristics of air: Aerometric calculations of air involve the temperature, pressure, condensation, refraction, and its velocity.
aerophagic (adjective) (not comparable)

aerophilic (adjective) (not comparable)
Pertaining to the necessity of air for proper growth; aerobic: Aerophilic microorganisms flourish best in the proximity of molecular oxygen.
aerostatic (adjective), more aerostatic, most aerostatic
1. Relating to gases or resembling air; pneumatic: Such aerostatic gases, or compressed gasses, are used to propel an aircraft even under changing atmospheric flight conditions.
2. Pertaining to an aircraft, especially a dirigible: An aerostatic balloon derives its lift from the buoyancy of surrounding air rather than from the motion in the air:
aesthesic, esthesic (adjective); more aesthesic, most aesthesic; more esthesic; most esthesic
A reference to the mental perception of sensations: Harriet's aesthetic responses to stimulation were dulled by the pharmacological procedure that was used to allow the surgeon to perform the tonsillectomy or the surgical removal of each tonsil.

agamic (adjective) (not comparative)
1. A reference to nonsexual reproduction, as by fission, budding, etc.: Some species reproduce without sexual unions or by germinating without impregnation; such as, agamic or unfertilized eggs.
2. A reference to organisms in which all individuals reproduce asexually: Agamic sponges can reproduce by simply fragmenting their bodies and each small portion grows and produces to a new sponge.

In agamic reproduction, the offspring are usually genetically identical to their parents.

Most of unicellular yeast-fungi result from agamic reproduction that takes place by cell fission or the formation of a small cell from a part of a larger one.
