what is difference between cladode and phylloclad
cladode (plural cladodes)
- (botany) A flattened organ arising from the stem of a plant. These often replace the leaves in photosynthetic function, as leaves in such plants (for example asparagus, butchers broom) are typically reduced to scales. The term may also refer to the generally flattened shoot such as the cactus shown.
- phylloclade — a leaflike cladode, with unlimited extension growth
