dendro-, dendr-, dendri-, -dendria, -dendrite, -dendritic, -dendra, -dendron

(Greek: tree, tree-like structure; trees)

The forest is a peculiar organism of unlimited kindness and benevolence that makes no demands for its sustenance and extends generously the products of its life activity; it provides protection to all beings, offering shade even to the axeman who destroys it.
—Gautama Buddha, Founder of the Buddhist religion, circa 525 B.C.
acrodendrophilous (adjective)
A description of a species that lives or thrives in treetop habitats.
adendric, adendritic
Without dendrites or branched extensions of nerve-cell neurons that receive electrical signals from other neurons and conducts those signals to the cell body.
Argyrodendron
A genus of trees in the mallow family Malvaceae.

They occur in Malesia (a biogeographical region straddling the boundary of the Indomalaya and Australasia ecozones), New Guinea, New Caledonia, and Australia. In Australia, they are a well-known rainforest species known by their Indigenous Australian name, "booyong" or the "tulip oak".

axodendritic
A reference to the synaptic relationship of an axon with a dendrite of another neuron.
cytodendrite
One of the threadlike extensions of the cytoplasm of a neuron, which typically branch into tree-like processes.

In unipolar and bipolar neurons, there is a single dendrite, which proximally resembles an axon but branches distally; in multipolar neurons there are many short, branching dendrites. Dendrites compose most of the receptive surface of a neuron.

dendral
Pertaining to or of the nature of a tree; arboreal.
dendranthropology, dendranthropologic, dendranthropological
1. The theory that trees were involved in the origin of mankind; the aboreal origins of humans.
2. Study based on the theory that mankind came from trees.
dendraxon
A terminal filament of the neuraxon of a nerve cell.
dendric
Pertaining to or possessing a dendron.
dendriceptor
In neurology, a receptive point at an end of the branching processes of a dendrite where it can enter into contact with and be stimulated by the axon endings of other neurons.
dendriform, dendroid
1. Like a tree.
2. In the form or shape of a tree.
3. Branching like the limbs of a tree, as a dendriform process.
dendriglyph, dendriglyphs
Tree carving or carvings on trees.
dendrite, dendron (s), dendra (pl)
1. In medicine, One of the two types of branching protoplasmic processes of the nerve cell (the other being the axon); dendritic process, dendron, neurodendrite, neurodendron.
2. A long, branching outgrowth or extension from a neuron, that carries electrical signals from synapses to the cell body, unlike an axon that carries electrical signals away from the cell body.

Each nerve cell usually has many dendrites. This classical definition, however, lost some weight with the discovery of axo-axonal and dendro-dendritic synapses.

3. A crystalline tree-like structure formed during the freezing of an alloy.
dendritic
1. Dendroid; tree-like structures or markings.
2. Branching like a tree; aborescent.
3. Relating to the dendrites of nerve cells.
dendroarcheology
The dating of events or time intervals in past periods based on the variation in patterns of growth rings of trees and old wood.
