Don’t confuse this element with another bi- which means "two".

2. The study of energy changes involved in the chemical reactions within living tissue.
3. The study of energy exchanges between living organisms and their environments.
4. In psychological therapy, a combination of therapies, including breathing and body exercise and the free expression of feelings and impulses, designed to relieve tension and release physical and emotional energy.
2. The total weight of the organic substance (as plankton) or organisms in a given area; measured as volume, mass (live, dead, dry or ash-free weight) or energy (calories); standing crop.
3. In ecology, a plant material or vegetation that can be converted to useful fuel and that is considered as a potential bioenergy source.
Bioenergy can be produced from solid wood and straw, liquid (biofuels), or gaseous (biogases)."
"Bioenergy may be developed from the quantitative estimate of the entire assemblage of living organisms, both animal and vegetable, of a given habitat, measured in terms of mass, volume, or energy in calories."
2. Material that is directly or indirectly produced by photosynthesis and which is utilized as a feedstock in the manufacture of fuels and substitutes for petrochemical and other energy intensive products.
Organic waste from forestry and agriculture, and municipal solid waste are also included in the collaborative research; as well as, broader "system studies" on techno-economic aspects and greenhouse gas balances.

It is believed that the majority of sand-sized particles on reefs probably come from grazing activities.
2. The study of ethical problems involved in biological research; such as, in genetics, organ transplants, and artificial insemination; especially when the application of advanced technology is involved.
