Comment
It is not precisely defined how far toward the base from the tip a leaf apex extends. For the apical most portion of a leaf, use the term leaf tip. If you are annotating to this term, please add an additional annotation to vascular leaf (PO:0009025) or non-vascular leaf (PO:0025075), depending on the species. All annotations for angiosperms, gymnosperms, and pteridophytes should go to vascular leaf and all annotations for bryophytes should go to non-vascular leaf.
