Seasonal cambial activity and xylem anatomy were studied in Prosopis spicigera Linn. (Mimosaceae) growing under the influence of combined air pollutants. Cambial cell division and differentiation of secondary xylem began in April, reached a peak in July–August and ceased in October in trees (normal) growing in a relatively unpolluted locality. In contrast, in trees (affected) growing near a fertilizer complex, the initiation of cambial activity was delayed by one month and the cambium ceased to… 
Behavioral responses of leaves and vascular cambium of Prosopis cineraria (L.) Druce to different regimes of coal-smoke pollution
Coal-smoke inhibited pigment concentration, NR activity and sugar content and promoted stomatal index and the nitrate and sulfur contents, leading to a drop in the net photosynthetic rate and the annual increment of wood was reduced despite a prolonged active phase.
Cambial periodicity and wood production in Acacia ehrenbergiana Hayne growing on dry sites of Saudi Arabia.
Moderate temperature, low water deficit and high relative humidity and rainfall favored cambial activity and vascular tissue formation in Acacia ehrenbergiana.
Cambial dormancy lasts 9 months in a tropical evergreen species
Cambial dormancy in a tropical evergreen species is long lasting, and the initiation of cambial activity is related to day length, and that at least some conducting phloem is present year-round in a population of an evergreen shrubs from a semi-deciduous tropical forest with distinct wet and dry seasons.
A comparative study of cambium histology of Ceiba speciosa (A. St.-Hil.) Ravenna (Malvaceae) under urban pollution
The results suggest a tolerance of C. speciosa to pollution and reveal this species to be an important biomarker for environmental monitoring studies.
Anatomical changes in the wood of Syzygium cumini exposed to coal-smoke pollution
Vulnerability factor of the wood increased with tree age as well as air pollution, thus showing that the trees were consistently vulnerable to conditions of water stress created by the environmental degradation.
Preliminary Evaluation of Variations in Anatomical Properties of Melia dubia Cav . Wood
Though variation between trees and among tree is non significant, numerically superior values are recorded in fast grown tree than slow grown tree.
This paper reviews histological studies of cambium activity in South American woody species and provides future research prospects. The majority of the studies almost exclusively describe radial
Photosynthetic, metabolic and growth responses of Triumfetta rhomboidea to coal-smoke pollution at different stages of plant ontogeny
Abstract Coal-smoke emissions affected photosynthesis, N-metabolism and growth characteristics of Triumpfetta rhomboidea, as observed at pre-flowering, flowering and post-flowering stages of plant
Dendroecology of Prosopis Species in the World: Secular Traces of Natural and Anthropic Events and Their Effects on Prosopis Growth
Prosopis genus comprises 44 species which grow in arid and semiarid environments of America, Asia and Africa and in Oceania as introduced species. Of those 44 species, 30 grow in America. Argentina


Seasonal Cambial Anatomy and Development of Xylem in Dalbergia sissoo Growing Under the Influence of Combined Air Pollutants
Abstract Seasonal behavior of vascular cambium and development of xylem were compared between the trees of Dalbergia sissoo growing under the influence of combined air pollutants (affected) and in
Cambial Periodicity and Formation of Wood in Ailanthus excelsa Growing Under the Influence of Combined Air Pollutants
The seasonal behaviour of cambium and formation of secondary xylem was compared between the trees of Ailanthus excelsa ROXB (Simaroubaceae) growing under the influence of combined air pollutants and in relatively unpolluted regions.
Cambial Anatomy and Annual Rhythm of Secondary Xylem Development in the Twigs of Azadirachta indica A. Juss. (Meliaceae) Growing in Different Forests of Gujarat State
Abstract Seasonal behavior of vascular cambium and development of secondary xylem were studied in the 2-3-years-old branches of Azadirachta indica A. Juss. (Meliaceae) growing in moist deciduous
Microscopical Investigations on Wood Formation and Function in Dlseased Trees
Histologieal and histochemical investigations were performed on the xylem, cambium, and phloem of Abies alba and Picea abies affected by forest decline and it was demonstrated that apparently some areas of the sapwood do not take part any longer in the water conduetion in diseased trees.
Seasonal activity of the vascular cambium in Gmelina arborea Roxb
Seasonal variations in the activity of vascular cambium have been investigated in Gmelina ar­ borea from January 1978 to December 1978, finding that cambial activity is most active in August when the tree is with mature foliage and rainfall is highest.
Chemical Studies on Tue Wood of Declining Conifers
Changes in the composition related to tree disease can only be observed in strongly damaged or dead trees, and in some spruce trees of high damage classes the alkali-soluble lignin also increases.
The Annual Rhythm of Activity of the Lateral Meristems (Cambium and Phellogen) in Pistacia Lentiscus L.
The pattern of activity of the lateral meristems in Pistacia lentiscus suggests that this species is weil adapted to the Mediterranean climatic rhythm.
Inhibition of cambial activity in Abies balsamea by internal water stress: role of abscisic acid
It was demonstrated that increasing the internal water stress increased the level of endogenous ABA in the phloem–cambial region of bark peelings and decreased the basipetal movement of [14C]IAA through branch sections.
Wood Characteristics of Abies Balsamea in the New England States Compared to Abies Alba from Sites in Europe with Decline Problems
A comparative study of wood characteristics of Abies balsamea (L.) Mill. in the New England states, and Abies alba Mi1!. in the Federal Republic ofGermany finds that Cambial electrical resistance is strongly related to damage c1assification, and thereby to cambial growth.
