Etymology: New Latin amentum, from Latin, thong, strap
A catkin - a slim, spike-like and often drooping flower cluster such as those found on birch, willow and poplar.
An ament may be male or female. In some plants, male catkins are borne on one individual plant, female on another. In other plants a single plant may produce both male and female aments.
