Sample text

The cap meristematic cells, located adjacent (distal) to the quiescent centre, produce derivatives that are eventually displaced towards the outside of the root cap, and subsequently sloughed off, contributing to the external slime that allows the root to push through the soil. Cells are generated and lost in the root cap at approximately the same rate. 3 Ranunculus acris (Ranunculaceae), transverse section of root, with detail of central vascular region (inset). c ¼ cortex, e ¼ endodermis, mx ¼ metaxylem, pe ¼ pericycle, ph ¼ phloem, px ¼ protoxylem.

13). By contrast the vascular cambium is typically uniseriate and initially originates within vascular tissue, though it later extends between bundles. 14 Secondary thickening in monocots: Dracaena indivisa (Ruscaceae), transverse section of stem showing secondary thickening meristem (STM) and radial internal vascular derivatives. Scale ¼ 100 mm (left hand image). 9 Periderm Periderm is a protective tissue of corky (suberinized) cells that is produced either as a response to wounding or in the outer layers of the cortex of a stem or root that has increased in thickness.

G. Populus deltoides) subsidiary vascular bundles are initiated at the base of each developing primordium, and grow basipetally to meet the stem procambial trace. Nodal vasculature is further complicated by the axillary bud vascular traces, which are connected to the main stem vasculature immediately above the leaf gaps. In most species two traces diverge to supply each bud or branch. In large woody trees, the junction of the trunk and its branches is characterized by a complex arrangement of secondary vascular tissue, which typically forms a collar around the base of the branch99.
