- Bot. assuming a new position in response to external stimuli
- Physics having properties, such as conductivity or speed of transmission of light, etc., that vary according to the direction in which they are measured
Origin of anisotropican- + isotropic
- Not isotropic.
- Physics Having properties that differ based on the direction of measurement.

aniso- + -tropic
anisotropic - Computer Definition
Properties that differ based on the direction that is measured. For example, an anisotropic antenna is a directional antenna; the power level is not the same in all directions. Contrast with isotropic.
