stipe

stipe A branch of a rhabdosome (graptolite colony, see GRAPTOLITHINA). A stipe or stipes originate(s) from an initial conical cup (sicula). The number of stipes can range from one to as many as 64. Their attitudes also vary. In the primitive condition the stipes hang downwards from the sicula and are said to be ‘pendent’. If they grow out horizontally from the sicula they are ‘horizontal’; if they grow upwards along the nema they are ‘scandent’; if they are straight and grow downwards they are ‘declined’; if they are curved and slope downwards they are ‘deflexed’; if they are straight and grow upwards and outwards they are ‘reclined’; and if they are curved and grow upwards and outwards they are ‘reflexed’.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
