Words in Context


  • foliage


Meg found that leaf-eating insects consumed significantly less foliage in the upper crowns of trees when compared to leaves in the middle of the crowns or within the canopy itself.


  • foliage: leaves in general


  • foraging


The two birds suddenly explode from the tree like a burst of fireworks and go to another tree nearby. Meg thinks that they are most likely foraging for food to bring to their young.

Lasky, K. (1997)


  • foraging: searching


  • hoist


The leafcutter ants do their farming in reverse, trudging up to the canopy day and night to cut dime-size disks. They then hoist the pieces overhead and carry them back down to underground chambered caverns.

Lasky, K. (1997)
