Indeterminate growth and the production of new organs in plants require a constant supply of new cells. The majority of these cells are produced in mitotic regions called meristems. For primary or tip growth of the roots and shoots, the meristems are located in the apices. These apical meristems have been shown to function as developmentally regulated and environmentally responsive stem cell niches. The principle requirements to maintain a functioning meristem in a dynamic system are a balance… 
The plant vascular system: evolution, development and functions.
TLDR
The evolutionary events that gave rise to the tracheophytes are examined, followed by analysis of the genetic and hormonal networks that cooperate to orchestrate vascular development in the gymnosperms and angiosperms, in a comprehensive picture of the state-of-the-art in the area of plant vascular biology.
Signaling and Genetic Regulation of the Plant Stem Cells
TLDR
Transcriptional and posttranscriptional control is described, that enable maintaining the boundaries between pluripotent stem cells and differentiating descendants in plant meristems.
Developmental Control of Plasmodesmata Frequency, Structure, and Function
TLDR
The distinct modes by which structural and functional alterations of the plasmodesmal networks can be achieved are summarized, and possible molecular control mechanisms are discussed.
The Role of Hormones in Controlling Vascular Differentiation
The vascular system in plants is induced and controlled by streams of inductive hormonal signals. Auxin produced in young leaves is the primary controlling hormone in vascular differentiation. Its
Cellular Aspects of Wood Formation

TLDR
The aim of this chapter is to give a brief overview of the essential steps leading to mature wood cells, with an emphasis on current progress obtained by modern techniques which have increased the authors' understanding of wood formation.
Review of cellular and subcellular changes in the cambium
TLDR
The goal of this review is to contribute to clarification of the terms mainly used, such as cambial dormancy, reactivation, activity, productivity and transition between different states, resting period and quiescence, which describe structural modifications of c Cambial cells during the various phases of their seasonal cycle.
Microdissection to isolate vascular cambium cells in poplar
TLDR
The presented work describes a nine-step procedure, from standing tree to isolated ray and fusiform cells from cryolyophilized tangential sections of the poplar cambial zone, presenting the time schedule of the whole process and RNA analysis.
Review of cellula R and subcellula R changes in the cambium
TLDR
The goal of this review is to contribute to clarification of the terms mainly used, such as cambial dormancy, reactivation, activity, productivity and transition between different states, resting period and quiescence, which describe structural modifications of c Cambial cells during the various phases of their seasonal cycle.
Auxin Transport and Signaling in Leaf Vascular Patterning
TLDR
Recent advances suggest a self-organizing control mechanism in which an apical-basal continuous flow of signal could establish a basic coordinate system for body-axis and vascular-strand formation, and account for both the reproducible and the variable features of leaf vein patterns.
Cambial meristematic cell culture: a sustainable technology toward in vitro specialized metabolites production.
TLDR

A Quantitative and Dynamic Model for Plant Stem Cell Regulation
TLDR
A mathematical model is developed to explain the observed changes by a cell pool size dependent regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation, which is able to correctly predict CLV3 and WUS over-expression phenotypes and predicts a variation in stem cell number under changing conditions.
The Vascular Cambium: Development and Structure
TLDR
The vascular cambium consists of two cell types, fusiform and ray cell initials and these cells divide both anticlinally and periclinally, and the manifold consequences of these two modes of cambial cell division are thoroughly explored and analyzed.
Physiology of the cambium and other secondary meristems of the shoot
TLDR
This chapter will be limited to those secondary meristems which are formed in the course of the normal development of numerous plants, that is the vascular c Cambium, the cork cambium or phellogen, and the dilation growth in the outer tissues of the stem which accompanies the growth in thickness in many plants.

TLDR
Based on transcriptional and anatomical data, a model for the position of the stem cells and the proliferating mother cells in the cambial zone is presented and analysis of known regulators of apical meristem development indicates substantial similarity in regulatory networks between primary and secondary meristems.

Short-range control of cell differentiation in the Arabidopsis root meristem
TLDR
The data indicate that pattern formation in the root meristem is controlled by a balance between short-range signals inhibiting differentiation and signals that reinforce cell fate decisions, which are strikingly similar to examples in animal development, such as during delamination of Drosophila neuroblasts.
