The current notion that hormonal level and cell response are clearly correlated has often been challenged recently. During the period of cambial activity, auxin content seems to control the intensity of mitosis and some features of the resulting wood, but not the duration of the active period itself. During cambial rest, the indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) level often remains high in the cambium, but the cell sensitivity to auxin is low. The decrease of auxin transport in autumn is sometimes… CONTINUE READING
