Deciduous means "temporary" or "tending to fall off".

Deciduous plants are those that lose their foliage for part of the year. In most cases, the foliage loss coincides with the incidence of winter in temperate or polar climates, but some plants lose their leaves during dry seasons in arid climates. Non-deciduous plants are known as evergreens.

Deciduous teeth are those that fall out during the course of normal development. See tooth for more information.
