A fleshy or pulpy, several-seeded fruit that has developed from one flower having a single ovary divided into several carpels, and is fleshy or pulply throughout without a tough rind (such as a tomato).
A plant species that completes its life cycle (germination of a seed, flowering, reproduction, and senescence) within a duration of two years or seasons, with the second season typically devoted to reproduction (flowering and fruiting)
The total mass of all living organisms in a given area, but in this instance pertaining to the total plant mass produced, vegetative and reproductive
A very large regional community, or major ecosystem, of the earth which is distinguished by its climate, fauna and flora - such as grass savanna, desert, temperate forest, or the Arctic tundra.
Twice pinnate; a leaf blade divided into leaflets and having twice-diverged branching
Bracts can appear leaf-like or petal-like: such as a reduced leaf, or modified leaf, that subtends a flower or inflorescence, or sometimes occurs along a stem. Or, on occasion, bracts are highly colored and surrounding tiny flowers, such as with poinsetta, bougainvillea, and dogwood. In conifers - within a cone, the structures arising from the cone axis that support the ovules are often called bracts (strictly, they are sporophylls).
A small bract or secondary bract, such as one occurring upon the pedicel of a flower
Refers to a plant or plant species which does not have needles or grass-like leaves

A short underground stem having fleshy scales or leaves (storage leaves) that surround a bud/meristematic region, such as an onion
A small bulb that arises from the base of a larger bulb, generated by asexual reproduction
A small bulb or bulb-shaped body, borne above ground typically upon the stem in a leaf axil, generated by asexual reproduction
Tiny, somewhat circular dots within a leaf scar, caused by the separation/breaking of the fibrovascular bundles which pass through a leaf petiole into the leaf blade. Left once a leaf drops off from the stem of a plant
