Leaf anatomy in transverse section and abaxial epidermis for twelve species of Trisetum Pers. present in Mexico is described. Elongate mesophyll cells with undulated walls were observed in nine species. The epidermis costal zone of all species, except T. filifolium, showed short silica and cork cells frequently arranged in rows. Those short cells appeared solitary or in pairs in the intercostal zone of only four species. Solitary, elongate silica bodies undulated in outline were found in costal zone of all species.

    Studies on the anatomy of Piper leaves demonstrate the presence of a subepidermal tissue distinct from the adjacent epidermis, which cells show thin walls and hyaline contents. Some authors consider such cells a hypodermal tissue, while others refer to them as components of a multiple epidermis....

    Abscisic acid (ABA)- and methyl jasmonate (MeJA)-induced stomatal closure are accompanied by cytosolic alkalization in guard cells. However, it remains to be clarified how the alkalization functions in not only ABA signaling but also MeJA. We investigated cytosolic alkalization in guard cells...

    Growth and mesostructure of the photosynthetic apparatus were studied in leaves of ten Triticum L. species. Plants with the Au genome were shown to develop larger leaf assimilation areas due to expanding areas of individual leaves and an increase in the absolute growth rate. Leaf and mesophyll...

    Most higher plants possess a phase in their life cycle in which tissues can survive desiccation. However, this is restricted to specialized tissues such as seeds and pollen. Resurrection plants are remarkable in that they can tolerate almost complete water loss in their vegetative tissues. The...
