Leaves are collectively referred to as foliage, as in "autumn foliage". We To discriminate such contours, the use of curvature is very advantageous. Palmate "Palmated.--Cut into oblong segments, so as to resemble a hand." As the leaf grows away from the meristem, its shape is determined by growth in three axes, proximal–distal, abaxial–adaxial and medial–lateral. Leaf development is initiated from the shoot apical meristem (SAM) ; then the leaf polarity is established by three main axes, named proximal-distal (longitudinal), midvein-margin (mediolateral) and adaxial-abaxial (dorsoventral); finally the leaf shape and size is determined by a coordinated regulation of cell differentiation and expansion along these axes. relative to the non-sectored half (Table Sector phenotypes in lg1-R;Wab1 mutants.

To investigate the molecular basis of events in the margin, we performed an enhancer trap screen to identify genes specifically expressed in this tissue. This means that the veins branch from the main rib and then sub-branch into finer veins.

External leaf characteristics, such as shape, margin, hairs, the petiole, and the presence of stipules and glands, are frequently important for identifying plants to family, genus or species levels, and botanists have developed a rich terminology for describing leaf characteristics. 4F). Arrows in A and D One thing to remember is that a tree's leaves can also vary in shape according to their position on the tree, their age after budding, and the presence or absence of insect/disease damage.
