Leaf bud  [ Botany ]
Synonym: Gemma

Dictionary of botanic terminology - index of names


Since buds are formed in the axils of leaves, their distribution on the stem is the same as that of leaves (see: Phyllotaxis) . There are alternate, opposite, and whorled buds, as well as the terminal bud at the tip of the stem.
