    How to use "Scale leaf" in context?

    Scale leaves are clusters of small, broad leaflets that are located at the upper surface of the stem. The leaflets are held together by a slender stem that runs the length of the leaf. As the leaflets expand and contract with the changing humidity and temperature, they move up and down the stem. The scale leaves are an important component of the humid Forest floor biome.
