MONTESSORI BOTANY : The Leaf Venation Types


The veins are called reticulate when the veins
 beginning at the petiole form one or more veins
 that branch off on either side. These veins
 branch off to form thinner veins. A network 
of veinlets is found throughout the blade.

Latin: reticulatus resembling network.


The veins are called parallel  when the 
veins on the leaf are parallel to each other. 
Parallel veins are connected by veinlets.

Greek: parallelos - para-beside,
        allelon - one another.
