Physiologically is defined as relating to the normal functions of a living thing.
An example of physiologically used as an adverb is the phrase "doing well physiologically," which means functioning in a health way.
- A soil may be physically wet; but if the plants absorb the water only with difficulty, as in a salt marsh, then the soil is, as regards plants, physiologically dry.
- Many forms, even when multicellular, have all their cells identical in structure and function, and are often spoken of as physiologically unicellular.
- The soil is physiologically dry.
- There has, however, been performed upon halophytes very little physiologically experimental work which commands general acceptance.
- The group has attained an importance of late even beyond that to which it was brought by Pasteur's researches on alcoholic fermentation, chiefly owing to the exact results of the investigations of Hansen, who first applied the methods of pure cultures to the study of these organisms, and showed that many of the inconsistencies hitherto existing in the literature were due to the coexistence in the cultures of several species or races of yeasts morphologically almost indistinguishable, but physiologically very different.
