Alpine climate is the average weather (climate) for the regions above the tree line.
The American Journal of Botany is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal which covers all aspects of plant biology.
Arboriculture is the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees, shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants.
The Arecaceae are a botanical family of perennial trees, climbers, shrubs, and acaules commonly known as palm trees (owing to historical usage, the family is alternatively called Palmae).
Astronomical symbols are symbols used to represent astronomical objects, theoretical constructs and observational events in astronomy.
Bark is the outermost layers of stems and roots of woody plants.
Carl Linnaeus (23 May 1707 – 10 January 1778), also known after his ennoblement as Carl von LinnéBlunt (2004), p. 171.
A caudex (plural: caudices) of a plant is a stem, but the term is also used to mean a rootstock and particularly a basal stem structure from which new growth arises.
The cell (from Latin cella, meaning "small room") is the basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known living organisms.
A cell wall is a structural layer surrounding some types of cells, just outside the cell membrane.
Cellulose is an organic compound with the formula, a polysaccharide consisting of a linear chain of several hundred to many thousands of β(1→4) linked D-glucose units.
Decomposition is the process by which organic substances are broken down into simpler organic matter.
Dendrology (δένδρον, dendron, "tree"; and -λογία, -logia, science of or study of) or xylology (ξύλον, ksulon, "wood") is the science and study of wooded plants (trees, shrubs, and lianas), specifically, their taxonomic classifications.
Dracaena (derived from the romanized form of the Ancient Greek δράκαινα – drakaina, "female dragon") is a genus of about 120 species of trees and succulent shrubs.
Herbaceous plants (in botanical use frequently simply herbs) are plants that have no persistent woody stem above ground.
Inosculation is a natural phenomenon in which trunks, branches or roots of two trees grow together.
A liana is any of various long-stemmed, woody vines that are rooted in the soil at ground level and use trees, as well as other means of vertical support, to climb up to the canopy to get access to well-lit areas of the forest.
Lignin is a class of complex organic polymers that form important structural materials in the support tissues of vascular plants and some algae. Lignins are particularly important in the formation of cell walls, especially in wood and bark, because they lend rigidity and do not rot easily. Chemically, lignins are cross-linked phenolic polymers.
Monocotyledons, commonly referred to as monocots, (Lilianae sensu Chase & Reveal) are flowering plants (angiosperms) whose seeds typically contain only one embryonic leaf, or cotyledon.
A perennial plant or simply perennial is a plant that lives more than two years.
Petrified wood (from the Greek root petro meaning "rock" or "stone"; literally "wood turned into stone") is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation.
Plants are mainly multicellular, predominantly photosynthetic eukaryotes of the kingdom Plantae.
The Polygonaceae are a family of flowering plants known informally as the knotweed family or smartweed—buckwheat family in the United States.
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second-largest in the Solar System, after Jupiter.
A shrub or bush is a small to medium-sized woody plant.
Species Plantarum (Latin for "The Species of Plants") is a book by Carl Linnaeus, originally published in 1753, which lists every species of plant known at the time, classified into genera.
A terrestrial plant is a plant that grows on or in or from land.
In botany, a tree is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species.
The vascular cambium is the main growth layer in the stems and roots of many plants, specifically in dicots such as buttercups and oak trees, and gymnosperms such as pine trees.
Vascular plants (from Latin vasculum: duct), also known as tracheophytes (from the equivalent Greek term trachea) and also higher plants, form a large group of plants (c. 308,312 accepted known species) that are defined as those land plants that have lignified tissues (the xylem) for conducting water and minerals throughout the plant.
Vascular tissue is a complex conducting tissue, formed of more than one cell type, found in vascular plants.
Wood is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees and other woody plants.
Xylem is one of the two types of transport tissue in vascular plants, phloem being the other.
