This glossary is far from complete. We are constantly adding terms.

We want you!

General comments on format

There is no set format for this glossary as the terms come from a wide variety of fields (for example: biology, chemistry, engineering, or sociology). It should probably start with the definition itself -- use the Definition template {{Definition|your definition here}}

Some other recommended sections (where applicable) may be

  • Importance and/or Purpose,
  • Features,
  • Standards and/or Typical values,
  • Example(s),
  • See also (linked to related terms), and
  • Links.

When your entry reuses information from another source, be sure to properly attribute that source(s). For an entry showing attribution, see Biosphere.
