Biological Events

#$BiologicalEvent   biological events

    A specialization of #$BiologicalProcess (q.v.) instances of which are non-deliberately done by biological organisms. Each instance of #$BiologicalEvent is a biological process that has an instance of #$Organism-Whole as a bodily doer (see #$bodilyDoer). Note that not all physical events that have bodily doers are #$BiologicalEvents; they might (e.g.) be #$PhysiologicalConditions that are not biological events. Thus, having a bodily doer is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for being an instance of #$BiologicalEvent.

#$TranslationAlongInternalLivingStructure   biological transportation

    A specialization of #$Translation-Complete. Each instance of #$TranslationAlongInternalLivingStructure is a movement event in which the trajectory of the object moving (see #$trajectory-Complete and #$primaryObjectMoving) follows a living structure (an instance of #$BiologicalLivingObject) internal to some organism (see #$Organism-Whole) for a significant portion of the movement (so that the living structure is a #$motionPathway-Partial (q.v.) for the movement). Notable specializations of #$TranslationAlongInternalLivingStructure include #$EatingEvent, #$DigestionEvent, and #$Inhaling.

#$BirthEvent   births    **COMMENT NOT REVIEWED**    **GAFs NOT REVIEWED**

    The collection of events in which one animal (prototypically, a #$Mammal) gives birth to another. The mother is the #$birthParent and the child is the #$birthChild. Both are #$objectOfStateChange; the mother goes from being pregnant to not pregnant (therefore a #$BirthEvent is an instance of #$PregnancyEndingEvent), while the child changes from being inside the mother and relying on the mother for nutritional, respiratory, and excretory needs (called in CYC the #$Embryo life stage, although different English terms apply to different stages of in utero development in mammals and not all of these terms apply to live-born #$Fish) to the #$JuvenileAnimal life stage (see #$BiologicalStageOfDevelopment).

(related to the event by #$parentActors) produce at least one new instance of #$BiologicalLivingObject (related to the event by #$offspringActors), generally of the same kind as the parents.

#$AsexualReproductionEvent   asexual reproduction    **COMMENT NOT REVIEWED**    **GAFs NOT REVIEWED**

#$SexualReproductionEvent   sexual reproduction    **COMMENT NOT REVIEWED**    **GAFs NOT REVIEWED**

    A specialization of #$BiologicalReproductionEvent. In each instance of #$SexualReproductionEvent, two #$parentActors produce one or more offspring. Sexual activity which does not result in offspring is not included in this concept. On the other hand, if offspring begin to develop, but never finish (e.g., it just hasn't finished yet, or the mother dies, or the offspring is aborted, or the offspring doesn't survive to independence, etc.), then that is still considered an instance of #$SexualReproductionEvent but an incomplete one. The example of #$SexualReproductionEvent most familiar to most people is when two mammals, one male and one female, mate; sperm from the male combines with one or more eggs inside the female and the resulting offspring develop(s), inside the female parent and dependent upon her for nutrition, until it/they is/are born. However, #$SexualReproductionEvent is more general than that, and would include these examples: Two birds mate; the female lays one or more eggs; both parents incubate the eggs until they hatch. Two fish engage in courtship; the female expells her eggs; the male expells his sperm on top of them, and they swim away leaving many fertilized eggs to develop into juvenile fish. One oak tree's flowers give off airborne pollen; some grains land on the stigma of another tree's flower and fertilize the ovary inside, which then develops into an acorn which is shed by the female parent at the end of summer.

#$AnimalMigration   migrations    **COMMENT NOT REVIEWED**    **GAFs NOT REVIEWED**

    The collection of regular, species-linked movements of an animal or group of animals from one place to another, usually with a return to the starting point after a certain period of time. In some species, the migration cycle occurs once in a lifetime, while others migrate annually on a seasonal basis. Migration is typically linked with an animal's reproductive cycle (as in salmon), but may also involve seasonal relocation to a more hospitable climate and/or more plentiful food supply. For example, many birds exhibit seasonal migration; e.g., native Northeastern U.S. birds that spend their winters in the Southern U.S.
