Life History and Behavior
Glossary for Tetraclinis articulata
- bud source
- Location of bud bank for resprouting.
- BROT trait database. Traits: units and categories (BudSource), http://www.uv.es/jgpausas/brot.htm
- conservation status
- An area with a high density of trees. A small forest may be called a wood.
- Grams per cubic centimeter. A mass unit density which is equal to mass of an object in grams divided by the volume in cubic centimeters.
- A category or description of the habitat in which the Event occurred.
- least concern
- A taxon is Least Concern when it has been evaluated against the criteria and does not qualify for Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable or Near Threatened. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
- Meters. A length unit which is equal to the length of the path traveled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299 792 458 of a second.
- A mountain rising from the ocean seafloor that does not reach to the water's surface (sea level), and thus is not an island. Typically formed from volcanoes that rise abruptly and are usually found rising from a seafloor of 1,000 - 4,000 meters depth. Independent features that rise to at least 1,000 meters above the seafloor.
- Bud sources other than epicormic buds, apex, root crown, lignotuber, burl, rhizome, roots or storage organs, including those not clearly specified (e.g., stump).
- plant growth habit
- The general growth form of a plant - its size and branching - also its woodiness. Some plants have different growth habits depending on environment or location, so a plant can have more than one value.

- plant height
- A stature and vigor trait (TO:0000133) which is associated with the height of a whole plant (PO:0000003).
- An elevated and comparatively level expanse of land.
- population trend
- post-fire seedling emergence
- Seedling density per pre-fire mature individuals emerging during the first year after fire (seedlings/mature).
- BROT trait database. Traits: units and categories (SeedlEmerg), http://www.uv.es/jgpausas/brot.htm
- resprout ability after clipping
- The ability of woody perennials to resprout following top (above ground biomass) removal.
- BROT trait database. Traits: units and categories (RespClip), http://www.uv.es/jgpausas/brot.htm USDA PLANTS database Characteristics Data Fields (Resprout Ability). http://plants.usda.gov/charinfo.html
- resprout ability after fire
- Resprouting ability one year after being ca. 100% scorched or burned by fire.
- BROT trait database. Traits: units and categories (RespFire), http://www.uv.es/jgpausas/brot.htm;
- root crown
- A root crown, also known as the root collar or root neck, is that part of a root system from which a stem arises.
- A large expanse of saline water usually connected with an ocean.
- terrestrial biome
- A biome that applies to the terrestrial realm.
- terrestrial habitat
- A habitat that is on or at the boundary of the surface of the Earth.
- Perennial, woody plant with a single stem (trunk), normally greater than 4 to 5 meters (13 to 16 feet) in height; under certain environmental conditions, some tree species may develop a multi-stemmed or short growth form (less than 4 meters or 13 feet in height).
- PLANTS Database Growth Habits Codes and Definitions: https://plants.usda.gov/growth_habits_def.html
- A depression caused by erosion by water or ice. Low-lying land bordered by higher ground; especially elongate, relatively large gently sloping depressions of the Earth's surface, commonly situated between two mountains or between ranges of hills or mountains, and often containing a stream with an outlet.
- wood density
- Secondary xylem volumetric density. Any measurable or observable characteristic related to the volumetric density of a secondary xylem.
