Arctic Regions definition: The Arctic Ocean and the lands in it and adjacent to it. It includes Point Barrow, Alaska, most of the Franklin District in Canada, two thirds of Greenland, Svalbard, Franz Josef Land, Lapland, Novaya Zemlya, and Northern Siberia. (Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p66)
AT Rich Sequence definition: A nucleic acid sequence that contains an above average number of ADENINE and THYMINE bases.
back definition: posterior part of the trunk from the neck to the pelvis.
Body Regions definition: Anatomical areas of the body.
body region definition: a general term for grouping regions of the body; preference is to use NTs.
Body Region definition: Named areas of the body.
Branchial Region definition: A region, of SOMITE development period, that contains a number of paired arches, each with a mesodermal core lined by ectoderm and endoderm on the two sides. In lower aquatic vertebrates, branchial arches develop into GILLS. In higher vertebrates, the arches forms outpouchings and develop into structures of the head and neck. Separating the arches are the branchial clefts or grooves.
Desert Climate definition: A type of climate characterized by insufficient moisture to support appreciable plant life. It is a climate of extreme aridity, usually of extreme heat, and of negligible rainfall. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
arid climate definition: climate lacking moisture, especially having insufficient rainfall to support trees or woody plants.
Immunoglobulin Constant Region definition: The portion of an antibody that is invariant within a class of immunoglobulins. It is comprised of the carboxyl terminal half of both light chains and at least three quarters of each heavy chain starting from the carboxyl terminus and excludes the variable regions of the heavy and light chains.
