Glossary: digitate

Definition:

(of leaflets) a compound leaf in which the leaflets arise from the same central point. For this work, we have chosen digitate to mean leaves which are truly compound (i.e. composed of separate leaflets) and palmate leaves to be simple leaves where the radiating fingers are joined together near the base.
