Brix: Degrees Brix (symbol °Bx) is the sugar content of an aqueous solution.AmyloplastFujiyama (roller coaster)Tsuga diversifoliaUrinalysisChronic cellular dehydrationEutypella parasitica: Eutypella canker is a plant disease caused by the fungal pathogen Eutypella parasitica. This disease is capable of infecting many species of maple trees and produces a large, distinguishable canker on the main trunk of the tree.Fagus grandifolia: Fagus grandifolia (American beech or North American beech) is the species of beech tree native to the eastern United States and Canada.

A refractometer is the instrument used to measure refractive index ("RI").Swim bladder: The swim bladder, gas bladder, fish maw or air bladder is an internal gas-filled organ that contributes to the ability of a fish to control its buoyancy, and thus to stay at its current water depth without having to waste energy in swimming. Also, the dorsal position of the swim bladder means the center of mass is below the center of volume, allowing it to act as a stabilizing agent.Silicone oil: A silicone oil is any liquid polymerized siloxane with organic side chains.
