(zo-oth'-o-lo-my)
(n) The scientific name for a leaf that has been separated from a branch by unnatural forces. It is important to differentiate between natural and unnatural forces. If a hurricane blows leaves off branches, they remain leaves. If humans or animals pull a leaf off a tree, it becomes a zootholomy.

plural: zootholomie (zo-oth'-o-lo-mie)
Little Johnny hit the branch so hard, one leaf became a zootholomy.

After the pine died, the leaves began accumulating at the base of the tree.
