Seasonal Behaviour of Vascular Cambium in Teak (Tectona Grandis) Growing in Moist Deciduous and Dry Deciduous Forests
In both the forests active cambial cell division and simultaneous differentiation of xylem and phloem started in June when the dormant shoot buds opened and ceased in October and November, respectively.
Contribution of lignin degrading enzymes in decolourisation and degradation of reactive textile dyes
Investigating the potential of Phanerochaete chrysosporium to decolourise and degrade two reactive textile dyes (Reactive Yellow MERL and Reactive Red ME4BL) was the main intend of the study. The
Cambial anatomy and absence of rays in the stem of Boerhaavia species (Nyctaginaceae)
The stem revealed anomalous secondary growth characterised by the development of successive rings of xylem and phloem by the cambium exclusively composed of fusiform initials giving rise to rayless secondary vascular tissues.
Relationship between seasonal cambial activity, development of xylem and phenology in Azadirachta indica growing in different forests of Gujarat State
Seasonal cycle of cambial activity was compared among the trees of Azadirachta indica growing in Moist Deciduous (MDF), Dry Decidulent (DDF) and Scrub land Forest (SF) of Gujarat State and vascular cambium was discussed in relation to phenology and local climatic conditions.
Cambial activity and development of xylem in Tamarindus indica L. growing in different forests of gujarat state
Seasonal behaviour of vascular cambium and development of xylem investigated in Tamarindus indica L. growing in moist deciduous forests of Gujarat state found cambial cells began to divide in May and reached peak in September-October during the mosoon and the divisions ceased in January.
Secondary growth of the stem of Celosia argentea L. and Aerva sanguinolenta (L.) BLUME (Amaranthaceae)
Variation in cambial behavior resulted in the formation of successive rings of xylem alternating with phloem and axial parenchyma in Aerva sanguinolenta and vascular bundles embedded in ground mass of axials in Celosia argentia.
Stem anatomy of Amaranthaceae: Rayless nature of xylem
In the later part of secondary growth, species of Amaranthus, Celosia and Digera arvensis produced axially elongated upright ray cells in the region of cambium that differentiates only into thin walled parenchyma, while in the rest of the species xylem was devoid of rays even at the senescent stage of the life cycle.
Stem anatomy and development of successive cambia in Hebanthe eriantha (Poir.) Pedersen: a neotropical climbing species of the Amaranthaceae
Although the origin of successive cambia and composition of secondary xylem of H. eriantha remains similar to other herbaceous members of Amaranthaceae, the occurrence of relatively wider and thick-walled vessels and large rays in fully grown plants is characteristic to climbing habit.
Cambial Activity and Wood Anatomy in Prosopis Spicigera (Mimosaceae) Affected by Combined air Pollutants
Seasonal cambial activity and xylem anatomy were studied in Prosopis spicigera Linn growing under the influence of combined air pollutants and did not show any correlation with the phenology of affected trees.
Xylem structure and annual rhythm of development in the twigs of Acacia nilotica (L.) DEL. growing in different forests of Gujarat State (India)
Periodicity of vascular cambium and development of secondary xylem was studied in the two-three year old branches of Acacia nilotica (L.) DEL and was correlated with local climatic conditions and phenology of the trees.
