Megagametophyte The female gametophyte that arises from a megaspore of a heterosporous plant.
Microgametophyte The male gametophyte that develops from the microspores of heterosporous plants. The pollen grains of gymnosperms and angiosperms are microgametophytes
Colony collapse disorder Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) or sometimes honey bee depopulation syndrome (HBDS) is a phenomenon in which worker bees from a beehive or European honey bee colony abruptly disappear.
Endosperm Endosperm is the tissue produced in the seeds of most flowering plants around the time of fertilization.

Epicotyls the epicotyl is the embryonic shoot above the cotyledons. In most plants the epicotyl will eventually develop into the leaves of the plant.
Hypocotyls Hypocotyl is a botanical term for a part of a germinating seedling of a seed plant.
Cotyledon is a part of the embryo within the seed of a plant. Upon germination, the cotyledon usually becomes the embryonic first leaves of a seedling.
Phototropism Phototropism is directional growth in which the direction of growth is determined by the direction of the light source

Stolon are horizontal connections between organisms.
Trophic level The trophic level of an organism is the position it occupies on the food chain.
Autotroph An autotroph is an organism that produces complex organic compounds (such as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins) from simple inorganic molecules using energy from light (by photosynthesis) or inorganic chemical reactions (chemosynthesis).
heterotroph is an organism that uses organic carbon for growth.

Transition community
Climax community is a biological community of plants and animals which, through the process of ecological succession - the development of vegetation in an area over time - has reached a steady state.
Pioneer species Pioneer species are species which colonize previously uncolonized land, usually leading to ecological succession.
Chemoautotroph Chemotrophs are organisms that obtain energy by the oxidation of electron donors in their environments.

Photoautotroph are the organisms (usually plants) that carry out photosynthesis to acquire energy.
Nitrogen fixation Nitrogen fixation generally refers to the natural process, either biological or abiotic, by which nitrogen (N2) in the atmosphere is converted into ammonia.
Ammonification Production of ammonia or ammonium compounds in the decomposition of organic matter, especially through the action of bacteria.
Nitrification Nitrification is the biological oxidation of ammonia with oxygen into nitrite followed by the oxidation of these nitrites into nitrates.

Denitrification Denitrification is a microbially facilitated process of dissimilatory nitrate reduction that may ultimately produce molecular nitrogen (N2) through a series of intermediate gaseous nitrogen oxide products. Nitrate into Nitrogen gas
