Freebase

  1. Glade

    In the most general sense, a glade or clearing is an open area within a woodland. Glades are often grassy meadows under the canopy of deciduous trees such as red alder or quaking aspen in western North America. They also represent openings in forests where local conditions such as avalanches, poor soils, or fire damage have created semi-permanent clearings. They are very important to herbivorous animals, such as deer and elk, for forage and denning activities. Sometimes the word is used in a looser sense, as in the treeless wetlands of the Everglades. In the central United States, the term glade is used more specifically to describe rocky, prairie-like habitats that occur in areas of shallow soil. Glades are characterized by unique plant and animal communities that are adapted to harsh and dry conditions.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Glade

    glād, n. an open space in a wood.—adj. Glā′dy, having glades. [Scand.; Ice. glaðr, bright, Norw. glette, a clear spot among clouds.]
