bio·me·te·or·ol·o·gy (bi″o-me″te-or-olґə-je) [bio- + meteorology] the branch of ecology that deals with the effects on living organisms of the extraorganic aspects of the physical environment (such as temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, rate of air flow, and air ionization). It considers not only the natural atmosphere but also artificially created atmospheres such as those to be found in buildings and shelters, and in closed ecological systems, such as satellites and submarines.
