  • Vascular bundle
    A vascular bundle is a part of the transport system in vascular plants.
  • Lotus effect
    The lotus effect refers to self-cleaning properties that are a result of ultrahydrophobicity as exhibited by the leaves of Nelumbo or "lotus flower".
  • Spermatophyte
    The spermatophytes (from the Greek word Σπερματόφυτα), also known as phanerogams or phenogamae, comprise those plants that produce seeds, hence the alternative name seed plants.
  • Photoperiodism
    Photoperiodism is the physiological reaction of organisms to the length of day or night.
  • Plant ecology
    Plant ecology is a subdiscipline of ecology which studies the distribution and abundance of plants, the effects of environmental factors upon the abundance of plants, and the interactions among and between plants and other organisms.
  • Altitudinal zonation
    Altitudinal zonation in mountainous regions describes the natural layering of ecosystems that occurs at distinct altitudes due to varying environmental conditions.
  • Bud
    In botany, a bud is an undeveloped or embryonic shoot and normally occurs in the axil of a leaf or at the tip of a stem.
  • Allelopathy
    Allelopathy is a biological phenomenon by which an organism produces one or more biochemicals that influence the germination, growth, survival, and reproduction of other organisms.
  • History of botany
    The history of botany examines the human effort to understand life on Earth by tracing the historical development of the discipline of botany—that part of natural science dealing with organisms traditionally treated as plants.
  • Monoicous
    Monoicous plants are those species that bear both sperm and eggs on the same gametophyte.
  • Myco-heterotrophy
    Myco-heterotrophy (Greek: μυκός mykós, "fungus", ἕτερος heteros = "another", "different" and τροφή trophe = "nutrition") is a symbiotic relationship between certain kinds of plants and fungi, in which the plant gets all or part of its food from parasitism upon fungi rather than from photosynthesis.
  • Light curve
    In astronomy, a light curve is a graph of light intensity of a celestial object or region, as a function of time.
  • Linnaeus' flower clock
    Linnaeus' flower clock was a garden plan hypothesized by Carolus Linnaeus that would take advantage of several plants that open or close their flowers at particular times of the day to accurately indicate the time.
  • Ecotype
    In evolutionary ecology, an ecotype, sometimes called ecospecies, describes a genetically distinct geographic variety, population or race within a species, which is adapted to specific environmental conditions.
  • Apomixis
    In botany, apomixis was defined by Hans Winkler as replacement of the normal sexual reproduction by asexual reproduction, without fertilization.
  • History of plant breeding
    Plant breeding started with sedentary agriculture, particularly the domestication of the first agricultural plants, a practice which is estimated to date back 9,000 to 11,000 years.
  • Plant identification
    Plant identification is the process of matching a specimen plant to a known taxon.
  • Plant ontology
    Plant ontology (PO) is a collection of ontologies developed by the Plant Ontology Consortium.
  • Tropical vegetation
    Tropical vegetation is any vegetation in tropical latitudes.
  • Neomariopteris
    Neomariopteris is a genus dating from the Permian and triassic Lower.
  • Petunia integrifolia
    Petunia integrifolia, also known as Petunia violacea and as the violet petunia or violetflower petunia, is a species of wild petunia with violet-colored blooms.
  • Tillandsia albertiana
    Tillandsia albertiana is a species in the genus Tillandsia.
  • Xylotheque
    A xylotheque (from the Greek xylon for "wood" and "theque" meaning "repository") is a wood collection.
  • Floral Genome Project
    The Floral Genome Project is a collaborative research cooperation primarily between Penn State University, University of Florida, and Cornell University.
  • JIC Germplasm Resources Unit
    The John Innes Centre Germplasm Resources Unit (GRU) located in the Norwich Research Park, Norwich, England, is a Germplasm conservation unit and National Capability supported by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).
  • John Innes Centre
    The John Innes Centre (JIC), located in Norwich, Norfolk, England, is an independent centre for research and training in plant and microbial science.
