Glossary for Dendrolagus spadix
- Above ground dwelling
- An organism that spends most of its time above ground.
- Actual evapotranspiration rate in geographic range
- Monthly AET (Actual Evapotranspiration Rate) within the geographic range of a taxon. Evapotranspiration (ET) is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the Earth's land surface to atmosphere.
- Behavioral circadian rhythm
- Any measurable or observable behavioral characteristic related to a daily biological activity cycle.
- 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.
- 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).
- Conservation status
- Decimal degrees
- Decimal degrees (DD) express latitude and longitude geographic coordinates as decimal fractions. The values are bounded by ±90° and ±180° respectively. Positive latitudes are north of the equator, negative latitudes are south of the equator. Positive longitudes are east of Prime Meridian, negative longitudes are west of the Prime Meridian. (Wikipedia)
- Degrees Celsius
- Diet breadth
- Number of dietary categories eaten by an organism.
- 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.
- Geographic range (area)
- The total extent of the geographic range of an organism.
- The natural environment in which an organism lives, or the physical environment that surrounds (influences and is utilized by) a species population.
- Habitat. (2013, August 9). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 19:01, August 14, 2013, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Habitat&oldid=567783959
- A category or description of the habitat in which the Event occurred.
- Habitat breadth
- Number of habitat layers used by an organism
- An animal that eats mainly plants or parts of plants.
- Human population density
- The human population density within the geographic range of a taxon.
- Human population density change
- Rate of increase in human population density within the geographic range of a species.
- Individuals per square kilometer
- A unit of population density.
- Area of dry or relatively dry land surrounded by water or low wetland.
- A feature shaped by the dissolution of a soluble layer or layers of bedrock, usually carbonate rock such as limestone or dolomite. These landscapes display distinctive surface features and underground drainages, and in some examples there may be little or no surface drainage.
- Kilograms. A mass unit which is equal to the mass of the International Prototype Kilogram kept by the BIPM at Svres, France.
- Square kilometre, symbol km^2, is a decimal multiple of the SI unit of surface area, the square metre, one of the SI derived units. 1 km^2 is equal to: 1,000,000 m^2, 100 ha (hectare) (Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Square_kilometre&oldid=566625931)
- Large river biome
- Latitude is a geographic coordinate which refers to the angle from a point on the Earth's surface to the equatorial plane
- 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.
- Longitude is a geographic position that refers to the angle east or west of a reference meridian between the two geographical poles to another meridian that passes through an arbitrary point.
- Millimeters per month
- Nocturnal/crepuscular, cathemeral, crepuscular or diurnal/crepuscular
- An organism that is nocturnal/crepuscular, cathemeral, crepuscular or diurnal/crepuscular
- An elevated and comparatively level expanse of land.
- Population trend
- Potential evapotranspiration rate in geographic range
- Monthly PET (Potential Evapotranspiration Rate) within the geographic range of a taxon. Evapotranspiration (ET) is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the Earth's land surface to atmosphere. Potential evapotranspiration (PET) is a representation of the environmental demand for evapotranspiration and represents the evapotranspiration rate of a short green crop, completely shading the ground, of uniform height and with adequate water status in the soil profile. It is a reflection of the energy available to evaporate water, and of the wind available to transport the water vapour from the ground up into the lower atmosphere.
- Precipitation in geographic range
- Monthly precipitation within the geographic range of a taxon.
- Natural freshwater surface streams of considerable volume and a permanent or seasonal flow, moving in a definite channel toward a sea, lake, or another river; any large streams, or ones larger than brooks or creeks, such as the trunk stream and larger branches of a drainage system.
- A mass of the mineral material of the crust of the Earth.
- Any material within 2 m from the Earth's surface that is in contact with the atmosphere, with the exclusion of living organisms, areas with continuous ice not covered by other material, and water bodies deeper than 2 m.
- Teat number
- The number of teats, protuberances on the mammary glands, breasts or udders of female mammals through which milk is excreted.
- Temperature in geographic range
- Monthly temperature within the geographic range of a taxon.
- 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.
- Degree of terrestriality of an organism.
- Trophic level
- The position an organism occupies in a food chain.
- Land having a cover of trees, shrubs, or both.
