Microfibril orientation across the secondary cell wall of Radiata pine tracheids

Abstract

Polarised light microscopy and transmission electron microscopy were used to measure the variation in cellulose microfibril orientation across the secondary cell wall of Pinus radiata D. Don tracheids using oblique sections. Variations in orientation for the S1, S2 and S3 layers were determined for radial and tangential cell walls from the juvenile and… (More)
