Definition

A node which has no levels below it within the hierarchy.

Terminal Categories have no children and are sometimes called terminal nodes or leaves. In product taxonomies, Terminal Nodes are where the products are kept. For that reason, it is at the terminal node level that local schema is constructed. Comparing the SKU counts in terminal nodes is important for hierarchy balance.
