Trifoloiolate

Leaf Structure

Pictorial Glossary

Compound Leaves - Trifoliolate

Trifoliolate - having three leaflets arising from the same point, therefore one leaf.

NOTE: trifoliate means 'having three leaves.' Some books use the terms interchangeably but, for example, a clover leaf is trifoliolate, not trifoliate.
