By Paula J. Rudall

Within the 3rd version of her profitable textbook, Paula Rudall presents a finished but succinct advent to the anatomy of flowering vegetation. completely revised and up-to-date all through, the ebook covers all features of comparative plant constitution and improvement, prepared in a sequence of chapters at the stem, root, leaf, flower, seed and fruit. inner constructions are defined utilizing magnification aids from the straightforward hand-lens to the electron microscope. various references to fresh topical literature are incorporated, and new illustrations mirror quite a lot of flowering plant species. The phylogenetic context of plant names has additionally been up-to-date due to stronger realizing of the relationships between flowering crops. This essentially written textual content is perfect for college kids learning quite a lot of classes in botany and plant technology, and is additionally a great source for pro and beginner horticulturists.

Sample text

The amount of secondary vascular tissue produced is extremely variable, depending on the habit of the plant. g. g. Saururus). The vascular cambium is a single cell layer (uniseriate) or several cell layers (multiseriate) if xylem and phloem mother cells are included55. It is a complex tissue consisting of both Secondary xylem fusiform initials and ray initials, which form the axial and radial systems respectively. Both fusiform and ray initials are vacuolate (unlike most meristematic tissue) and plastid-rich.

The cells of the quiescent centre divide infrequently; their role is obscure, but they maintain initial cells in an undifferentiated state. These cells, together with the root cap initials, are derived from the uppermost cell of the suspensor (hypophysis) in the embryo18 (Fig. 7). Cell division activity occurs in the cells surrounding the quiescent centre. 1 Diagram of root apical organization in Zea mays (Poaceae), a species with closed structure. Arrows indicate direction of displacement of cell derivatives.

5). 3 Primary Vascular System The primary vascular system is mostly derived from the procambium near the shoot apex. Primary vascular bundles possess both xylem and phloem, arranged either adjacent to each other (in collateral vascular bundles: Fig. 12), or with strands of phloem on both sides of the xylem (bicollateral vascular bundles), or with xylem surrounding the phloem (amphivasal vascular bundles). In woody angiosperms, internodal stem vasculature is typically arranged either in a continuous cylinder, or in a cylinder of separate or fused collateral bundles, with the phloem external to the xylem (Fig.
