asperellum into the vascular cambium through stem infusion, we found it only in the stems and roots but not leaves, suggesting its spread through the vascular cambium or phloem.
The ultimate form of juvenilism is represented by loss of the vascular cambium, which has occurred in monocots.
By far, the most important lateral meristem is the vascular cambium, a cylinder of cells in the roots and stems of woody plants that give rise to secondary xylem or phloem.
Meanwhile, cells in a layer of the stem's inner tissue, called the vascular cambium, divide on both sides of this tissue, producing wood cells (xylem) on the inside and a variety of cell types (phloem) toward the outside, widening the tree.
Beneath the epidermis is another layer of tissue called the vascular cambium. As the shoot grows, cells in the vascular cambium divide to produce new cells, which form wood on the inside and bark on the outside, thereby widening the plant.
Vascular cambium developed in one year-old seedlings; secondary" xylem was distinguished from the mature shoot by the occurrence of wide band tracheids and lack of fibers.
The vascular cambium is the layer of cells just beneath a tree's bark.
The first chapter, "The vascular cambium of trees and its involvement in defining xylem anatomy," has spotty coverage of what ought to be a book-length introduction to xylem.
The vascular cambium cells next to the gap divided to form a small callus with cells of different size and shape (Fig.
Although larger stems of Forchhammeria and one species of Stixis were available, secondary xylem consists of bands each generated by a vascular cambium (which in turn is produced by a master cambium).
This cells are arranged as short tangential bands that sligthly dilate tangentially at 700 [micron]m from the vascular cambium. Sometimes the small bands, which are longitudinal strands interrupted by rays, get together in the dilated phloem rays.
