  • life cycle habit
    • URI: http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/TO_0002725
    • Definition: Determined for type of life cycle being annual, binneal, perennial etc.
    • Comment: The life cycle habit indicates the typical duration of an individual plant's life. Common values are annual, biennial, and perennial. Some plants have different durations depending on environment or location, so a plant can have more than one value.

    annual
    • URI: http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/FLOPO_0980071
    • Definition: Of plant duration, a plant whose life span ends within one year after germination, e.g. a winter annual germinating in the autumn and flowering in the spring (esp. in Mediterranean climates), approximately synonymous to therophyte, c.f. biennial, ephemeral, perennial, c.f. also of flowering with respect to architecture, hapaxanthic, monocarpic, pleonanthic.

  • photosynthetic pathway
    • URI: http://eol.org/schema/terms/photosyntheticPathway
    • Definition: the biochemical pathway a plant uses to gain carbon for growth and reproduction. Plants have evolved three photosynthetic pathways, each in response to distinct environmental conditions, resulting in differences in their ecological patterns of growth and distribution.

    C4
    • URI: https://www.wikidata.org/entity/Q283604
    • Definition: a photosynthetic process in some plants. It is the first step in extracting carbon from carbon dioxide to be able to use it in sugar and other biomolecules. It is one of three known processes for carbon fixation. The C4 in one of the names refers to the four-carbon molecule that is the first product of this type of carbon fixation.
