sympodial, relating to a sympodium; with the shape of a sympodium; of or relating to a stem made up of a series of superposed branches, so as to imitate a simple axis (Jackson); “characteristic of or simulating a sympodium; cymose” (WIII); “a growth pattern in which the primary axis is superseded by a succession of secondary axes; in liverworts, the new primary axis is derived from one fork of a dichotomous or pseudodichotomous branch that overtops the other; in mosses, through subfloral innovation” (Magill 1990): sympodialis,-e (adj.B); cf. monopodia, dichopodial, dichotomous:

- habitu sympodiali, with the habit sympodial.

dichopodial, (in bryology) ‘forking; regular, unequal branching, e.g. Conocephalum’ (Magill 1990): dichopodialis,-e (adj.B).

Inflorescentia,-ae (s.f.I) sympodialis (adj.B); inflorescentia determinata (part.A).

Ramificatio,-onis (s.f.III) sympodialis: symodial branching, branching made up of successive secondary axes (not from a terminal bud) each of which represents one fork of a dichotomy, the other fork of which is of weaker growth or suppressed entirely.

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
