The flowers are generally arranged in terminal or axillary clusters, and are markedly regular with the same number of parts in each series.
The flowers, which are solitary, or rarely in pairs, at the end of slender axillary flower-stalks, are very irregular in form, with five sepals prolonged at the base, and five petals, the lowest one larger than the others and with a spur, in which collects the honey secreted by the spurs of the two adjoining stamens.
axillary or terminal spikes; they have four stamens, which bear at the back four small herbaceous petal-like structures, and four free carpels, which ripen to form four small green fleshy fruits, each containing one seed within a hard inner coat;.
While the tendril is thus diverted from its original direct course, the axillary bud of the leaf opposite the tendril begins a new podium, by lengthening into a shoot which assumes the direction the tendril had prior to its deflexion.

In the case of alternate leaves, the stipules at the base of each leaf are sometimes united to the petiole and to each other, so as to form an adnate, adherent or petiolary stipule, as in the rose, or an axillary stipule, as in Houttuynia cordata.
The flowers are small, and borne on axillary shoots.
Arising as a long tendon from the sterno-scapular ligament, it passes the axilla by means of a fibrous pulley, accompanies the axillary vessels and nerves along the humerus, and is inserted by a few fleshy fibres on the base of the last two or three cubital quills.
Each podium consists of a portion of the stem bearing one or more leaves, each with an axillary bud or buds, and terminating in a tendril or an inflorescence.
In Pinus the only leaves produced on the main stern and the lateral shoots are scales, the acicular leaves of the tree growing from axillary shoots.
The flowers are white, axillary and slightly fragrant, - often two or three together on separate pedicels.
Occasionally, as in violet, a flower arises singly in the axil of an ordinary foliage-leaf; it is then termed axillary.
This lateral course is due to the more vigorous growth of the axillary branch formed near the base of each flower, which is a terminal structure, and, except in the female flower of Cycas, puts a limit to the apical growth of the stem.
Another view is to regard the cone as an inflorescence, each carpellary scale being a bract bearing in its axil a shoot the axis of which has not been developed; the seminiferous scale is believed to represent either a single leaf or a fused pair of leaves belonging to the partially suppressed axillary shoot.
15, C, 11,11) are often harder and browner than the others; forms have been described transitional between axillary shoots, in which the leaves are separate, and others in which two of the leaves are more or less completely fused.
B, seminiferous scale as leaf of axillary shoot (b, shoot; Sc, seminiferous scale; Br, bract).
One argument that has been adduced in support of the axillary bud theory is derived from the Palaeozoic type Cordaites, in which each ovule occurs en an axis borne in the axil of a bract.
The position of the branches varies in the group; they are only exceptionally axillary (Hymenophyllaceae, Botryopterideae).
There is one anterior vena cava, formed by the union of the two jugular and two axillary veins.
The aorta gives off a large branch (the anterior aorta) very near its origin, from which arise - first, the left axillary, and afterwards the right axillary and the two carotid arteries.
The flowers are thus always axillary.
b, Petiole with axillary bud.
indefinite or axillary.
Flowers solitary, axillary.
Branches sprang from the nodes, though perhaps not truly axillary in position.
The genus Zygopteris, of which numerous Carboniferous and Permian species are known, likewise had a monostelic stem, but the structure of its vascular cylinder was somewhat complex, resembling that of the most highly differentiated Hymenophyllaceae, with which some species of Zygopteris also agreed in the presence of axillary shoots.
Some of the stamens are inserted between the bracts, in an apparently axillary position, while others are grouped about the apex of the axis.
bundles in tangential section; br, bracts; d, short axillary shoot, bearing a bracteole and a terminal ovule; i, integument; n, nucellus of ovule; ov, another ovule seen from the outside.
32, A, it appears that each ovule was borne terminally, on an extremely short axillary shoot, as in Taxus among recent Gymnosperms. The ovule consists of an integument (regarded by some writers as double) enclosing the nucellus.

A growth or flower bud (" axillary bud ") often appears in the axil.
Following the axillary clearance, my nodes were clear.
In a number of patients undergoing breast cancer surgery, an axillary dissection will be avoided with the risk of complications reduced.
apical dominance: The inhibition of growth in axillary buds by auxins produced in the growing shoot apex.
The branches bear horrific sharp axillary spines, as is suggested by the specific epithet (Gibson 1999 ).
Flowers are borne in terminal or axillary panicles, clusters or cymes which are spherical, domed or flattened like a lacecap hydrangea.
Patients with FDCS usually present with cervical or axillary lymphadenopathy, but extranodal disease has been described.
Palpate the drainage areas of the breast i.e. the lymph nodes - the supraclavicular group and the axillary nodes.
They are borne in terminal or axillary panicles, clusters, corymbs or cymes, which are often spherical or domed.
105, 1809), a climbing Composite plant of the tribe Eupatoriaceae, affecting moist and shady situations, and having a much-branched and deep-growing root, variegated, serrate, opposite leaves and dullwhite flowers, in axillary clusters.
Polygonatum and Maianthemum are allied genera with a herbaceous leafy stem and, in the former axillary flowers, in the latter flowers in a terminal raceme; both occur rarely in woods in Britain; P. multiflorum is the wellknown Solomon's seal of gardens (fig.
glareola, which, though much less common, is known to have bred in England, has a considerable resemblance to the species last mentioned, but can be distinguished by the feathers of the axillary plume being white barred with greyish-black, while in the green sandpiper they are greyish-black barred with white.
A peculiarity of these leaves is the inverse orientation of the vascular tissue; each of the two veins has its phloem next the upper and the xylem towards the lower surface of the leaf; this unusual position of the xylem and phloem may be explained by regarding the needle of Sciadopitys as being composed of a pair of leaves borne on a short axillary shoot and fused by their margins (fig.
15, B, Sc) is the first and only leaf of an axillary shoot (b) borne on that side of the shoot, the axis of which is suppressed, opposite the subtending bract (fig.
15, A, a, a) of an axillary shoot (b) fused into one by their posterior margins (fig.
The latter view receives support from abnormal cones in which carpellary scales subtend axillary shoots, of which the first two leaves (fig.
Thus, in axillary tetramerous flowers (fig.
Women were randomized to undergo either axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) or sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB).
