Chlorenchyma cells have radial arrangement around the VBs.
Chlorenchyma cells are in more or less radial arrangement around VBs.
This characteristic may have been a result of the deformation of the internal chlorenchyma layers in the leaves of the control treatment (Figure 2).
Deformation of the chlorenchyma was observed in the plants grown in the culture medium without silicon (Figures 5).
Fibrous strands located above the abaxial hypodermis are absent (55) or present forming one or two rows with one or several shapes (56 arrosetate, 57 round in outline variable in size, 58 raceme-shaped, 59 arrosetate mixed with round in outline); chlorenchyma is continuous above abaxial hypodermis (60) or discontinuous, then outer fibrous strands are directly above the hypodermis.
2) with 2 or 6 subsidiary cells around guard cells in Astrocaryum, 4 in Hexopetion (11-13); (ii) chlorenchyma with palisade cells composed of short cells in Hexopetion and of long cells in Astrocaryum (61-62); (iii) fibers of bundle sheath extension (Fig.
Seed coat normally comprise five layers, including epidermis (E), hypodermis (H), sclerenchyma (S), parenchyma (P), and chlorenchyma (C).
E epidermis, H hypodermis, S sclerenchyma, P parenchyma and C chlorenchyma.
Culm in cross-section, presence of chlorenchyma between bundle cap and epidermis for comer vascular bundles, for at least 2 of 3 bundles: absent (0), present (1) 19.
Cell wall development was most pronounced in collenchyma, primary phloem, and primary xylem vessels at the first sampling date, while other tissues such as epidermis, chlorenchyma, and pith parenchyma had only thin primary walls (Fig.
