Seven specimens that contained a continuous gradient of wood from normal to tension wood were collected from an inclined black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia), and the released strain of growth stress was quantified. Lignin distribution in the cell wall was investigated using ultraviolet (UV) microspectrophotometry to examine its relation to the intensity of growth stress. The UV absorption at cell corner middle lamella and in the compound middle lamella remained virtually constant, irrespective… CONTINUE READING
