Seasonal cycle of cambial activity was compared among the trees of Azadirachta indica growing in Moist Deciduous (MDF), Dry Deciduous (DDF) and Scrub land Forest (SF) of Gujarat State. Radial growth occurred in two growth flushes in MDF and DDF. Cambial cell divisions in MDF started in February and June resulting maximal radial growth in August-September when the rains were heavy and ceased in January and May during the drier part of the year. In DDF the first flush of growth commenced in…

Cambial activity and annual rhythm of xylem production of elephant apple tree (Dillenia indica Linn.) in relation to phenology and climatic factor growing in sub-tropical wet forest of northeast India
TLDR
It was evident that the monthly mean minimum temperature plays an important role for the cambial activity and xylem production rather than influence by rainfall and relative humidity in D. indica L. (Dilleniaceae) growing in sub-tropical wet forest of Meghalaya state, India.
Seasonal dynamics in cambial activity and the formation of xylem and phloem in the branches of Cinnamomum camphora
TLDR
The results showed that the cambial activity and formation of xylem and phloem were related to the environmental factors, especially the temperature.
Seasonal development of secondary xylem and phloem in Schizolobium parahyba (Vell.) Blake (Leguminosae: Caesalpinioideae)
TLDR
The relationship between seasonal cambial activity, xylem and phloem development, and phenology in Schizolobium parahyba, a fast growing semideciduous seasonal forest tree from southeastern Brazil, is described.
Cambial Anatomy, Development and Structural Changes in the Wood of Teak (Tectona grandisL.f.) Associated with Insect Defoliation
Abstract Periodicity of vascular cambium, development and structural changes in the juvenile wood of teak (Tectona grandisL.f.) associated with insect defoliation were examined histologically. In
Cambial dormancy lasts 9 months in a tropical evergreen species
TLDR
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.
Fluctuations of cambial activity in relation to precipitation result in annual rings and intra-annual growth zones of xylem and phloem in teak (Tectona grandis) in Ivory Coast.
TLDR
The seasonal formation pattern and microstructure of teak xylem suggest that AXGRs and XGZs can be used as proxies for analyses of the tree history and climate at annual and intra-annual resolution.
Cambial Activity and Phenology in Three Understory Species along an Altitude Gradient in Mexico
TLDR
The results showed that Ribes is the only species that terminates cambial activity with leaves senescence and is influenced by the minimum soil temperature, and it is likely that, depending on the life form, vascular cambium may be more or less susceptible to one or more climate factors.
CAMBIAL ACTIVITY OF DIPTEROCARPUS COSTULATUS IN RELATION TO DIFFERENT STEM DIAMETERS AND CLIMATE FACTORS
TLDR
It is proven that Dipterocrpus costulatus did not grow continually at the same rate in natural forests, instead it showed periods of alternate active and inactive growth.

Seasonal Behaviour of Vascular Cambium in Teak (Tectona Grandis) Growing in Moist Deciduous and Dry Deciduous Forests
TLDR
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.
Seasonal activity of the vascular cambium in Gmelina arborea Roxb
TLDR
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.
Seasonal variations in the cambial anatomy of Tectona grandis (Verbenaceae)
TLDR
It is shown that the activity initiates in the first week of June, reaches a peak in July and then slowly declines, and the length of fusiform cambial initials undergo considerable variations during the activity and dormancy of the cambium.
Annual Rhythm of Cambial Activity in Streblus Asper
TLDR
The size and relative proportion of eambial initials change with the season, and fusiform initials are shorter and broader during the rainy season (July-September) than during the rest of the year.
The Annual Rhythm of Activity of the Lateral Meristems (Cambium and Phellogen) in Pistacia Lentiscus L.
TLDR
The pattern of activity of the lateral meristems in Pistacia lentiscus suggests that this species is weil adapted to the Mediterranean climatic rhythm.
The Annual Rhythm of Activity of the Lateral Meristems (Cambium and Phellogen) in Pinus Halepensis Mill. and Pinus Pinea L.
TLDR
Pinus halepensis seems to follow the Mediterranean climate patterns whereas P pinea follows the pattern of a colder climate.
THE ANNUAL RHYTHM OF CAMBIAL ACTIVITY IN TWO WOODY SPECIES OF THE CHILEAN “MATORRAL”
TLDR
Two typical shrubs of the "matorral" in the semiarid region of central Chile, Proustia cuneifolia and Acacia caven, have different adaptive strategies to the same xerophytic conditions.
Inhibition of cambial activity in Abies balsamea by internal water stress: role of abscisic acid
TLDR
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.
OCCURRENCE OF INTERCELLULAR SPACES IN CAMBIAL RAYS KISHORE S. RAJPUT
TLDR
Large intercellular spaces were found in uniseriate as well as multiseriate cambial rays of Tectona grandis, Azadirachta indica, and Tamarindus indica during the period when the cambium is inactive, and their possible significance is discussed.
