The absence of air (specifically of free oxygen). Used to describe a biological habitat or an organism that has very low tolerance for oxygen.
A life or process that occurs in, or is not destroyed by, the absence of oxygen.
Living or active in the absence of free oxygen. In a compost bin decay speeds up with the introduction of air and water.
Reactions (usually biological) that take place in the absence of oxygen
(Humans as organisms) without oxygen
Living in the absence of free oxygen e.g. anaerobic bacteria. Obligate anaerobes grow only in the absence of oxygen; facultative anaerobes grow either with or without oxygen.

Pertaining to the absence of free oxygen. Anaerobic organisms do not require oxygen for their life processes, in fact oxygen is toxic to many of them. Most anaerobic organisms are bacteria or archaeans.Found on http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/glossary/gloss5ecol.html

An environment, such as a soil, that has no oxygen. Bacteria require oxygen to live, so the absence of this gas will mean the absence of bacteria. This means the preservation of things that bacteria usually be destroyed will survive.Found on http://www.encyclo.co.uk/local/20766

literally, 'without oxygen.' In anaerobic exercise, energy is produced without oxygen, usually because the exercise intensity is such that the heart and lungs can't get enough oxygen to the muscles. Anaerobic exercise creates a byproduct called lactate, which builds up in the muscles and causes soreness and fatigue.
