WHAT DOES UREOTELIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Ureotelic

A ureotelic organism excretes excess nitrogen as urea. It is one of the three major forms of excretion of nitrogenous waste in organisms, the others being ammonotelism and uricotelism. Urea is less toxic than the ammonia excreted by ammonotelic organisms. It requires 0.05 L of water to excrete 1 g of nitrogen, approximately only 10% of that required in ammonotelic organisms. Ureotelic organisms include cartilaginous fish, some bony fish, adult amphibians, and mammals, among others. Humans can be described as being ureotelic organisms.

Definition of ureotelic in the English dictionary

The definition of ureotelic in the dictionary is excreting urea as the main component of waste.
