What is the word ending in -ine that describes ducks?
No, it's not my homework. I've been out of school for decades.
You know, like bovine, equine, feline, ursine, ovine, lapine, lupine, canine, etc etc etc There has to be one for ducks. Anybody know what it is? Google doesn't work for this one -- at least, not the way I asked it.

Ducks are not a genus.
Anatine - adjective of or relating to the family Anatidae, comprising the swans, geese, and ducks.

I would try for a more generic "waterfowl" word or term, and look at biological groupings.
