The process is repeated every alternate year, until the tree no longer yields the resin in abundance, which under favourable circumstances it will do for twenty years or more.
All the bones of the limbs are separate, and those of the carpus and tarsus do not alternate; that is to say, each one in the upper row is placed immediately above the corresponding one in the row below.
The five stamens alternate in position with the lobes of the corolla.
At one time the land was held on the "runrig" system - that is, different tenants held alternate ridges - but now as a rule each holding is separate.

The existence of the parasite is maintained by a vicious interchange between its alternate hosts, mosquitoes and man,.
Their alternate hosts are mosquitoes of the Culex genus.
In the case of oxen the alternate host of the parasite is a special tick (Smith and Kilborne).
Causes an accumulation of air over the cold area, The diminution of barometric pressure which takes place all over Asia during the summer months, and the increase in the winter, are hence, no doubt, the results of the alternate heating and cooling of the air over the continent.
