(arrangement of leaves, buds). Not opposite. When leaves are arranged singly on the stem, one leaf at a node. (See also Leaf Arrangement.) Angular (twigs). The cross-sectional shape of the twig is not rounded.
a. (L. alteratus, one after another) said of leaves occurring one at a node; said also of members of adjacent whorls in the flower when any member of one whorl is in front of or behind the junction of two adjacent members of the succeeding whorl.
said of leaves which are not opposite each other on the axis but are borne singly at regular intervals at different nodes; of flower parts when they are situated at intervals between other parts, e.g., petals may be alternate with the sepals.
The arrangement of leaves along a stem where consecutive leaves alternate along different sides of the stem. Taken together, all of the leaves plus the stem lie in roughly the same geometric plane. In winter (after leaf drop for deciduous plants), the arrangement can be determined by looking at the leaf scars or buds on the dormant twigs.

Someone who occasionally plays a role in a show in order to give the regular performer a rest. For example, a star might play a role six times a week, and her alternate plays the two matinees.

These many and varied (sometimes related) systems of medicines say that in most cases, modern drugs are as much part of the problem as the solution to human and animal health. They espouse different techniques such as healing herbs remedies or weight loss programs often but not necessarily with a spiritual dimension included, for the promotion of well being.
