Dogwood
CORNUS is a genus of about 30–60 species of woody plants in the family Cornaceae
Cornaceae
, commonly known as DOGWOODS, which can generally be distinguished by their blossoms, berries, and distinctive bark. Most are deciduous trees or shrubs , but a few species are nearly herbaceous perennial subshrubs, and a few of the woody species are evergreen . Several species have small heads of inconspicuous flowers surrounded by an involucre of large, typically white petal-like bracts , while others have more open clusters of petal -bearing flowers. The various species of dogwood are native throughout much of temperate and boreal Eurasia and North America, with China

Genus
A GENUS (/ˈdʒiːnəs/ , pl. GENERA /ˈdʒɛnərə/ ) is a taxonomic rank used in the biological classification of living and fossil organisms in biology . In the hierarchy of biological classification, genus comes above species and below family . In binomial nomenclature , the genus name forms the first part of the binomial species name for each species within the genus. E.g. Felis catus
Felis catus
and Felis
Felis
silvestris are two species within the genus Felis
Felis
. Felis
Felis
is a genus within the family Felidae . The composition of a genus is determined by a taxonomist . The standards for genus classification are not strictly codified, so different authorities often produce different classifications for genera

Cyme (botany)
An INFLORESCENCE is a group or cluster of flowers arranged on a stem that is composed of a main branch or a complicated arrangement of branches. Morphologically , it is the modified part of the shoot of seed plants where flowers are formed. The modifications can involve the length and the nature of the internodes and the phyllotaxis , as well as variations in the proportions, compressions, swellings, adnations , connations and reduction of main and secondary axes. Inflorescence
Inflorescence
can also be defined as the reproductive portion of a plant that bears a cluster of flowers in a specific pattern. The stem holding the whole inflorescence is called a peduncle and the major axis (incorrectly referred to as the main stem) holding the flowers or more branches within the inflorescence is called the RACHIS . The stalk of each single flower is called a pedicel

Cornus Unalaschkensis
CORNUS UNALASCHKENSIS is a species of flowering plant in the Cornaceae
Cornaceae
, the dogwood family. Common names for the plant include ALASKAN BUNCHBERRY, WESTERN CORDILLERAN BUNCHBERRY, or simply WESTERN BUNCHBERRY. The species is native to the west coast of North America from Alaska to California
California
, as well as Magadan in Russia
Russia
. In the northwestern United States it is a common plant, even abundant. This is a rhizomatous subshrub with stems up to 20 centimeters tall. Leaves are borne in a whorl and are oval in shape and up to 8 centimeters long. The leaves are hairless to hairy. Flowers are borne in a cyme inflorescence , but are much smaller than the four white or pinkish bracts surrounding them. These bracts are 1 or 2 centimeters long; the petals at the center are only about a millimeter long. The fruit is a bright red drupe 6 to 8 millimeters in length

Asterids
In the APG IV system (2016) for the classification of flowering plants , the name ASTERIDS denotes a clade (a monophyletic group). Common examples include the forget-me-nots , nightshades (including potatoes , eggplants , tomatoes , peppers and tobacco ), the common sunflower , petunias , morning glory and sweet potato , coffee , lavender , lilac , olive , jasmine , honeysuckle , ash tree , teak , snapdragon , sesame , psyllium , garden sage , and table herbs such as mint , basil , and rosemary . Most of the taxa belonging to this clade had been referred to the Asteridae in the Cronquist system (1981) and to the Sympetalae in earlier systems. The name asterids (not necessarily capitalised) resembles the earlier botanical name but is intended to be the name of a clade rather than a formal ranked name, in the sense of the ICBN

Carl Linnaeus
CARL LINNAEUS (/lɪˈniːəs, lɪˈneɪəs/ ; 23 May 1707 – 10 January 1778), also known after his ennoblement as CARL VON LINNé (Swedish pronunciation: ( listen )), was a Swedish botanist , physician and zoologist , who formalised the modern system of naming organisms called binomial nomenclature . He is known by the epithet "father of modern taxonomy". Many of his writings were in Latin and his name is rendered in Latin as CAROLUS LINNæUS (after 1761 CAROLUS A LINNé). Linnaeus
Linnaeus
was born in the countryside of Småland , in southern Sweden . He received most of his higher education at Uppsala University and began giving lectures in botany there in 1730. He lived abroad between 1735 and 1738, where he studied and also published a first edition of his Systema Naturae in the Netherlands

Species
In biology , a SPECIES is the basic unit of classification and a taxonomic rank , as well as a unit of biodiversity , but it has proven difficult to find a satisfactory definition. Scientists and conservationists need a species definition which allows them to work, regardless of the theoretical difficulties. If as Linnaeus
Linnaeus
thought, species were fixed, there would be no problem, but evolutionary processes cause species to change continually, and to grade into one another. A species is often defined as the largest group of organisms in which two individuals can produce fertile offspring , typically by sexual reproduction . While this definition is often adequate, when looked at more closely it is problematic . For example, with hybridisation , in a species complex of hundreds of similar microspecies , or in a ring species , the boundaries between closely related species become unclear

Woody Plant
A WOODY PLANT is a plant that produces wood as its structural tissue. Woody plants are usually either trees , shrubs , or lianas . These are usually perennial plants whose stems and larger roots are reinforced with wood produced from secondary xylem . The main stem, larger branches, and roots of these plants are usually covered by a layer of bark . Wood
Wood
is a structural cellular adaptation that allows woody plants to grow from above ground stems year after year, thus making some woody plants the largest and tallest terrestrial plants . Wood
Wood
is primarily composed of xylem cells with cell walls made of cellulose and lignin . Xylem

Native Plant
NATIVE PLANTS are plants indigenous to a given area in geologic time . This includes plants that have developed, occur naturally, or existed for many years in an area (trees , flowers , grasses , and other plants). Some native plants have adapted to very limited, unusual environments or very harsh climates or exceptional soil conditions. Although some types of plants for these reasons exist only within a very limited range (endemism ), others can live in diverse areas or by adaptation to different surroundings. Research has found that insects depend on native plants. An alternative but potentially conflicting usage is to describe plants (and animals) that are indigenous to a geographical area, even if they are known to have self-introduced in historical times such as the silvereye (Zosterops lateralis) of New Zealand, which was first recorded in the 30th anniversary

Boreal Ecosystem
A BOREAL ECOSYSTEM is an ecosystem with a subarctic climate in the Northern Hemisphere
Northern Hemisphere
, roughly between latitude 50° to 70°N. Boreal forests are also known as the taiga , particularly in Europe
Europe
and Asia . The Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) was a major international research program in the Canadian boreal forest. NASA sponsored the program, and most research took place between 1994 and 1996. Its primary goals were to determine how the boreal forest interacts with the atmosphere, how climate change will affect the forest, and how changes in the forest affect weather and climate. The ecosystems that lie immediately to the south (in the Northern Hemisphere) of boreal zones are often called hemiboreal . The Köppen symbols of boreal ecosystems are DFC, DWC, DFD, and DWD

Petal
PETALS are modified leaves that surround the reproductive parts of flowers . They are often brightly colored or unusually shaped to attract pollinators . Together, all of the petals of a flower are called a COROLLA. Petals are usually accompanied by another set of special leaves called sepals , that collectively form the calyx and lie just beneath the corolla. The calyx and the corolla together make up the perianth . When the petals and sepals of a flower are difficult to distinguish, they are collectively called tepals . Examples of plants in which the term tepal is appropriate include genera such as Aloe
Aloe
and Tulipa . Conversely, genera such as Rosa and Phaseolus have well-distinguished sepals and petals. When the undifferentiated tepals resemble petals, they are referred to as "petaloid", as in petaloid monocots , orders of monocots with brightly coloured tepals
