TDZ is a highly effective regulator of in vitro morphogenesis and can induce differentiation and dedifferentiation in woody species (24), and contributes to rejuvenation of adult material among various forest species by inducing adventitious bud on organs such as leaves and internodes (25).
In the cylindrical and rectilinear stems (Figure 2a) of specimens having normal development, from the 1st to 3rd internodes, in a cross-section, an uniseriate epidermis was observed, whose cells presented varied shapes and sizes and a convex external periclinal wall, covered with a thin cuticle (data not shown).

The results regarding number of internodes per plant depicted in Table-2 reveals that the genotypes HoTh-544 and HoTh-512 remained on top with maximum internodes per plant followed by HoTh-518, HoTh-517, HoTh- 547, HoTh-550 and HoTh-514.
Transparent plastic sheets covered the water-stressed plots whenever rain fell at periods when these species are often exposed to water stress in their native environment (Busso, 1997): vegetative or early internode elongation or both phenological periods (Figure 3).
This L-system operates on two classes of modules: terminal branch segments, called "apices," and the remaining segments, called "internodes." According to the first production of this L-system, an apex yields a branching structure consisting of an apex continuing the main axis, two lateral apices, and two internodes.
