The article presents information on cambium, the tissue or sheath of cells that surround the entire rose cane. It explains why the cambium is known as a meristematic tissue. Since the cambium runs up and down the stem, it is called a lateral meristem. Additive growth and multiplicative growth are the two types of cambial growth. It also describes the hormonal activity that awakens the cambium during spring.

    The article investigates the anatomy and physiology of a rose focusing on the phloem. The rose has two types of phloem including the primary phloem producing terminal meristems at the tips of shoots and the secondary phloem being generated by the cambium. Rose canes are producing less phloem...

    A definition of the term "meristem" is presented. It refers to plant tissue whose cells actively divide to produce new tissues that cause the plant to grow. The cells of the meristem are not specialized but can become specialized to form the tissues of roots, leaves and other plant parts. The...

    Cambial injury has been reported to alter wood structure in broad-leaved trees. However, the duration and extension of associated anatomical changes have rarely been analysed thoroughly. A total of 18 young European ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.) trees injured on the stem by a spring flood were...

    Regrowth of an injured plant may exceed the growth of a noninjured plant (i.e., overcompensation) when (i) dormant meristems are available to replace injured meristems, (ii) the injury level is sufficient to release dormant meristems from apical dominance, and (iii) the supply of mineral...

    Nodules in the family Leguminosae come in many different shapes and forms, depending partly on the host that bears them. This review focuses on the peripheral tissues that surround the infected tissues of four anatomically distinct classes of nodules: nodules with indeterminate meristems (from...

    Axillary and floral meristems are shoot meristems that initiate postembryonically. In Arabidopsis, axillary meristems give rise to branches during vegetative development while floral meristems give rise to flowers during reproductive development. This review compares the development of these...
