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

(Greek: trees, tree-like structures)

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), more acrodendrophilous, most acrodendrophilous
A description of creatures that live in treetop areas: Vultures are considered to be acrodendrophilous because they make their nests on the tops of trees.
adendric (adjective) (not comparable)
Referring to the lack of dendrites or branched extensions of nerve-cell neurons that receive electrical signals from other neurons and conducts those signals to the cell body: Adendric, or adendritic processes of neurons, can be found in certain cells in a spinal ganglia.
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".

A reference to the synaptic relationship of an axon with a dendrite of another neuron.
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.

Pertaining to or of the nature of a tree; arboreal.
dendranthropology (s) (noun), dendranthropologies (pl)
The theory that trees were involved in the origin of mankind or the arboreal origins of humans.
A terminal filament of the neuraxon of a nerve cell.
Pertaining to or possessing a dendron.
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.
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.
1. Dendroid; tree-like structures or markings.
2. Branching like a tree; aborescent.
3. Relating to the dendrites of nerve cells.
