anoxybiosisAnoxybiosis (ger.)

  • The slowdown of life processes due to a lack of oxygen.

    Under natural conditions anoxybiosis is brought about by micro-organisms which use oxygen for their metabolism and thus remove it from the surrounding medium, as, for instance, in the case of plant seeds deeply buried in soil.
