Explanation:
Further explanation in Icelandic: "rekill, blómskipan eins og á víði, birki, ösp og fleiri trjátegundum".

I would recommend you to acquire a copy of Ensk-íslensk orðabók. Most of these words you are asking about are included there.

Many thanks, also for recommendation - I usually post this kind of vocab question when I've been led to believe one thing (e.g. I was told by an Icelander that catkin = strá), but find another thing when consulting a dictionary.
All the best, S
