Sorry, no etymologies found.
The vegetation of the Carpathians displays a pronounced zonation: the foothills are mostly covered by mixed deciduous forests, dominated by pedunculate oak (Quercus robur), lime (Tilia cordata) and hornbean (Carpinus betulus) in the north, and by various oak species (Quercus sessilis, Q. cerris, Q. pubescens, Q. frainetto) in the south.
The model explains 78.3% of the variance for sessile oak and 74.3% for pedunculate oak.
This includes some monthly parameters of year y year of ring formation, and also some parameters of the years y-1 to y-4 for sessile oak and y-1 to y-5 for pedunculate oak.
Small bundles of up to 5 pedunculate capitate inflorescences arise in axillary positions on the young parts of shoots.
The flowers are inconspicuous, usually white or cream and pedunculate, ascending or erect, corymbose cymes, collected into a terminal leafless panicle, or the lower peduncles arising from the axis of reduced leaves.
The _inflorescence_ is an oblong laxly branched, narrow pedunculate panicle, 2 to 4 inches long.
Cones indehiscent, from 9 to 14 cm. long, short-pedunculate, ovoid-conical or subcylindrical; apophyses dull pale nut-brown, rugose, shrinking much in drying and exposing the seeds, prolonged and tapering to a more or less reflexed tip, the umbo inconspicuous; seeds large, wingless, the spermoderm entire.
Conelets short-pedunculate, dark purple during the second season, their scales often tapering to an acute apex.
Cones symmetrical, from 4 to 7 cm. long, ovate-conic, short-pedunculate, early deciduous; apophyses sublustrous, nut-brown, flat or somewhat elevated, the umbo usually mutic.
Cones from 10 to 17 cm. long, short-pedunculate, ovoid-conic; apophyses lustrous brown-ochre or fuscous brown, elevated into thick, often reflexed, beaks with obtuse mutic umbos; seeds with large nuts and adnate striated dark gray or fuscous brown wings.
