Define Gum eh?

Simple enough. I googled “gum” and got this:

Definitions of gum on the Web:

chewing gum: a preparation (usually made of sweetened chicle) for chewing
gingiva: the tissue (covered by mucous membrane) of the jaws that surrounds the bases of the teeth
any of various substances (soluble in water) that exude from certain plants; they are gelatinous when moist but harden on drying
glue: cement consisting of a sticky substance that is used as an adhesive
gumwood: wood or lumber from any of various gum trees especially the sweet gum
mumble: grind with the gums; chew without teeth and with great difficulty; “the old man had no teeth left and mumbled his food”
gum tree: any of various trees of the genera Eucalyptus or Liquidambar or Nyssa that are sources of gum
exude or form gum; “these trees gum in the Spring”

Hmmm, is that Gum? Maybe some pictures would help:
