Haloragis (raspwort; family Haloragidaceae) A genus of rough, perennial herbs that have opposite or alternate leaves which are entire, toothed, or lobed. The flowers are unisexual or bisexual, small, and held in terminal panicles or racemes. The 2–4 sepals are united into a tube with erect but short lobes, and are usually persistent, remaining over the ovary. The calyx tube is usually ribbed. The 2–4 petals are keeled and incurving, often hairy on the outer side, and often absent in female flowers. There are twice as many stamens as petals, and each has a short filament and a long anther. There are 2–4 carpels, with the same number of styles. The fruit is a small nut with single-seeded locules, which are sometimes abortive. There are 26 species, found mostly in Australia, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Easter Island, and Juan Fernandez.

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
