An inflorescence that has one central stalk/axis (i.e. no branching) with lateral flowers or flower clusters, or spikelets (grasses), that have pedicels.
The axis (stalk) within a grass or sedge spikelet. Further, the stalk of a grass spikelet is called a pedicel; the primary axis of the entire grass inflorescence is called a rachis.
The main stalk/axis of a flower cluster (inflorescence) or seed head (grass inflorescence), or the main leafstalk within a compound leaf
In a seed, the portion of the embryo below the cotyledons that will form the roots
A vertical row along an axis such as a plant stem, as with leaves. When you sight along the length of a branch stem, from the tip end, if it appears there are two rows of leaves, either opposite or alternate, the branch is 2-ranked; if three rows, it is 3-ranked, etc.
The more or less thickened portion at the top of a flower stalk (peduncle or pedicel) to which the floral organs or clustered florets (in the case of daisies, etc. (Asteraceae family)) are attached. For those familiar with artichokes, the artichoke heart is the flower's receptacle.
The regional plant species component of the USA-NPN Plant Phenology Program consists of a set of ~200 native or introduced plant species that have more localized distributions than calibration species, or that are particularly important in certain locales or regions of the nation in terms of ecological processes, biological diversity, conservation, economics, or human culture.
Veins are branched repeatedly, forming a net-like pattern
A horizontal, modified, underground root-like stem of a plant, often having adventitious roots and shoots from its (stem) nodes and having scales subtending the buds or shoots at its nodes or scale scars, and typically thick, fleshy or woody
The part of a plant that grows underground, gets water from the ground, and holds the plant in place.
A thimble-like covering which protects the growing root tip (meristematic region) on plant roots
The end region of a root, including the root cap, where many phases of cell development are taking place, from the meristematic regions where cell division is occurring to the zone of elongation and zone of maturation, where cells are differentiating into different tissues and the root is developing root hairs
A dense, radiating cluster of overlapping leaves (or plant organs) at or near ground level
Leaves arranged into a basal rosette, with a very short or lacking stem
A reddish brown or brownish red color, such as that of rust or oxidized iron.
