  • The basal branching point in the tree represents the ancestor of the other groups in the tree. (tolweb.org)
  • they serve to anchor the tree and extract moisture and nutrients from the soil. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dogwoods are versatile trees that do well in full sun and moist soil or shady spots. (bhg.com)
  • Although this is desirable in terms of producing novel combinations from the richness of the gene pool of the two parent plants (such sexual recombination is the source of new cultivars), only rarely will the resulting new fruit tree be directly useful or attractive to the tastes of humankind. (princeton.edu)

  • Figures show how we can 'zoom out' from the mating lines between various individuals in a sample population to how this would look for many generations over time from a great distance: a fuzzy branching tree. (indiana.edu)
  • while the Joshua tree, bamboos and palms do not have secondary growth and never produce true wood with growth rings, they may produce "pseudo-wood" by lignifying cells formed by primary growth. (wikipedia.org)
