In botany, deciduous plants, principally trees and shrubs, are those that lose all of their foliage for part of the year.
In some cases, the foliage loss coincides with winter in temperate or polar climates, while others lose their leaves during the dry season in climates with seasonal variation in rainfall.
The converse of deciduous is evergreen; plants which are intermediate may be called semi-deciduous.
