a geographic unit defined for the purposes of forest administration and inventory. The boundaries follow permanent physical features or legal demarcation where appropriate.
An area of forest, usually defined by physiographical boundaries, designated for forest management purposes.
a separate structural portion (e.g., of the body or of a cell); a distinct area or part of the body, which may not have a discrete physical boundary. In pharmacology, an area of the body where a drug is metabolized.
a separate structural portion (e.g., of the body or of a cell). The term is also used in pharmacology to denote an area of the body where a drug is metabolized, but which may not have a discrete physical boundary.
One of the sections into which the hold of a ship is divided by water-tight bulkheads.
A building or part of a building, comprising one or more rooms, spaces or storeys, constructed to prevent the spread of fire to or from another part of the same building, or an adjoining building. The basis of compartmentation is to subdivide buildings into areas of manageable risk, to provide adequate means of escape, and to provide fire separation for adjoining buildings.
an interior space of a vessel's hull which is formed by bulkheads.
a small space or subdivision for storage
One of the parts into which an inclosed portion of space is divided, as by partitions, or lines; as, the compartments of a cabinet, a house, or a garden.

A compartment is a division of a symbol, such as a class rectangle divided vertically into smaller rectangles. Each compartment shows the properties of the represented element.
a theoretical division of the body with an arbitrarily assigned half time for nitrogen uptake and elimination. In designing decompression tables the body is divided into a finite number of compartments for purposes of making calculations.
