Agardh is a genus of filamentous terete red algae characterized by a uniaxial organization of its indeterminate axes, each axial cell bearing a whorl of three determinate branchlets
, and new indeterminate axes (branches) arising from an axial cell or from the basal cell of a whorl-branchlet
(Wollaston & Womersley 1998).
The active principles of the branchlet
and hook of Uncaria sinensis Oliv.
spur--A short, usually pointed branchlet
, found on some fruit trees.
As soon as you notice the branching tendency, snip off the weakest branch and stake the remaining branchlet
to grow straight--leaning, if at all, into the prevailing wind.
However, to assure that similar foliage units were sampled in each treatment, we recorded number of branches per shrub, branchlets
per branch (for one randomly selected branch per shrub), leaves per branchlet
(for three branchlets
per shrub) and average length of 10 leaves.
Cecidomyia lamellata Gagne, new species, is described from adults of both sexes, pupae, and larvae taken from resin in branchlet
swellings of baldcypress, Taxodium distichum (L.
Force growth upward by cutting just beyond an upward-growing branchlet
For each treatment, 10-15 larvae were added to each of three replicate dishes containing 4 ml of FSW and a branchlet
of a given alga, cleaned of epiphytes.
We defined a branchlet
as the twig and all its leaves from the tip back to the junction with the previous year's growth (whether or not this junction was a fork with another twig).
For the shoot treatments, we chose four short shoots growing on a common branch, but on a different branchlet
We used the most recent 5 yr of top branchlet
extension growth of 0.
After plucking a fruit from a branchlet
, they move to a larger branch, remove the pulp, hammer the seed coat open with the bill, and extract and eat the embryo and endosperm.
