Xylem structure and annual rhythm of development in the twigs of Acacia nilotica (L.) DEL. growing in different forests of Gujarat State (India)

  title={Xylem structure and annual rhythm of development in the twigs of Acacia nilotica (L.) DEL. growing in different forests of Gujarat State (India)},
  author={Karumanchi Sambasiva Rao and Kishore S. Rajput},
Periodicity of vascular cambium and development of secondary xylem was studied in the two-three year old branches of Acacia nilotica (L.) DEL. growing in moist deciduous (MDF), dry deciduous (DDF) and scrubland (SF) forests of Gujarat State. Xylem development was continued for ten months in MDF and SF and nine months in DDF. Cambial cells began to divide with the sprouting of new leaves in January and culminated in April and May during the drier part of the year in MDF and DDF respectively. The… 
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 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
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.
Cambial dormancy lasts 9 months in a tropical evergreen species
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.
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.
Intra-annual Secondary Growth Rate-Climate Relations of Fagus orientalis Lipsky in the Center of Hyrcanian Forests
Weekly rate of Beech tree ring increment were related to the changes of climatic factors in weekly intervals. In order to do so, small samples were extracted from 5 Oriental beech trees located in
Cloning, characterization and impact of up- and down-regulating subabul cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase (CAD) gene on plant growth and lignin profiles in transgenic tobacco
A unique opportunity to explore the significant role that down-regulation of CAD gene plays in reducing lignin content thereby offering potential benefits to the pulp and paper industry is demonstrated.


Seasonal Behaviour of Vascular Cambium in Teak (Tectona Grandis) Growing in Moist Deciduous and Dry Deciduous Forests
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 Production of Secondary Xylem in the Twigs of Certain Tropical Trees
Secondary xylem production in four deciduous (Albizzia lebbeck, Dalbergia sissoo, Tectona grandis, Terminalia crenulata) and three evergreen trees (Calophyllum inophyllum, Mangifera indica, Morinda
The Vascular Cambium: Development and Structure
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 Woody Plants
This third edition of this completely revised classic book is an up-to-date synthesis of the intensive research devoted to woody plants published in the second edition, with additional important aspects from the authors' previous book, "Growth Control in Woody Plants".
Cambial Activity of Evergreen and Seasonal Dimorphics Around the Mediterranean
The annual rhythm of cambial activity in various Mediterranean evergreens and seasonal dimorphics is compared on the basis of a literature survey. Two main rhythms of activity can be distinguished:
A staining combination for phloem and contiguous tissues.
The technic has been successful with sections from 5 to 40μ in thickness, and the staining has been satisfactory for ...
