Glossary for Wilsonia canadensis
- agricultural feature
- animal habitation
- The dwelling of an animal or group of similar animals.
- aquatic habitat
- A habitat that is in or on water.
- body length (VT)
- The distance from point to point along the longest axis of the body of an organism.
- body mass
- The amount of matter in the body of an organism.
- A piece of rock with a grain size above 300 millimetres in diameter. Smaller boulders are, at times, referred to as rocks or stones.
- An open area in a forest.
- clutch/brood/litter size
- Single birth offspring quantity. The proportion or number of offspring produced from a single pregnancy (mammals) or ovulation (fish) or nesting (birds).
- coffee plantation
- conservation status
- A plane angle unit which is equal to 1/360 of a full rotation or 1.7453310^[-2] rad.
- This taxon is still in existence, as opposed to extinct.
- extinction status
- Indicates whether a taxon is extant (living today) or extinct.
- An area with a high density of trees. A small forest may be called a wood.
- Grams. A mass unit which is equal to one thousandth of a kilogram or 10^[-3] kg.
- genome size
- The amount of DNA (or RNA) in one copy of a genome.
- A category or description of the habitat in which the Event occurred.
- A patch of ground, distinct from and slightly above the surrounding plain or wetland. Often occurs in groups.
- Area of dry or relatively dry land surrounded by water or low wetland.
- A body of water or other liquid of considerable size contained on a body of land.
- Large river biome
- The geographic latitude (in decimal degrees, using the spatial reference system given in geodeticDatum) of the geographic center of a Location. Positive values are north of the Equator, negative values are south of it. Legal values lie between -90 and 90, inclusive.
- 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.
- litters per year
- Number of litters per female per year
- The geographic longitude (in decimal degrees, using the spatial reference system given in geodeticDatum) of the geographic center of a Location. Positive values are east of the Greenwich Meridian, negative values are west of it. Legal values lie between -180 and 180, inclusive.
- male more colorful
- 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.
- A landform that extends above the surrounding terrain in a limited area. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill, but there is no universally accepted standard definition for the height of a mountain or a hill although a mountain usually has an identifiable summit and a local relief of more than 300m.
- onset of fertility
- The age at which an organism develops the ability to produce live offspring.
- per year
- A frequency rate of occurrences of something within a period of time equal to three hundred sixty-five days.
- picogram. A mass unit which is equal to 10^[-12] g
- A body of water, usually of smaller size than a lake.
- population trend
- prenatal development duration
- The duration of the development from fertilized, deposited or implanted egg to hatching/birth. Corresponds to egg incubation duration in oviparous animals and to gestation period duration in viviparous animals.
- Area covered with low-growing or stunted perennial vegetation and usually not mixed with trees.
- A large expanse of saline water usually connected with an ocean.
- sexes colored or patterned differently
- The part of an elevation or depression between the relatively flat surrounding area and the peak of a mount or the bottom of a depression.
- Linear body of water flowing on the Earth's surface.
- A wetland that features permanent inundation of large areas of land by shallow bodies of water, generally with a substantial number of hummocks, or dry-land protrusions.
- 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.
- total life span
- The full period of time from birth to death of an organism.
- A flowing body of water.
- A physical quality inhering in a bearer that has mass near a gravitational body.
- An area that is inundated or saturated by surface or ground water at a frequency and duration sufficient to support, and that under normal circumstances do support, a prevalence of vegetation typically adapted for life in saturated soil conditions.
- [Distance from one wingtip to the other wingtip.]
- Land having a cover of trees, shrubs, or both.
