Summary of stem anatomy (German)

Umriss rund oder oval. Leitbündel diffus verteilt. Konische Stützen. Kleine Interzellularen, oft dreieckig. Grosse runde oder ovale Intercellularen. Epidermiszellen aussen verholzt.

Description

Culm-diameter 5-10 mm, center full, radius of culm in relation to wall thickness 1:1. Outline circular wavy. Culm-center full, containing unlignified cells. Epidermis cells inside thin, peripheral thicker-walled (lignified). Large vascular bundles distributed in the whole culm. Chlorenchyma in round, oval, square or rectangular groups. Sclerenchyma belt absent. Groups of sclerenchyma at the periphery, round. Vascular bundles collateral closed. Sclerenchymatic sheath around vascular bundles one-sided large, 2-4 cells, centripetal. Vessels arrangement in vascular bundles in lateral position. Largest vessel in the bundle 20-50 μm. Cavities (intercellulars) between parenchyma-cells small, often triangular. Distinct cavities (intercellulars) in the protoxylem area of vascular bundles. Cell contents as slime or phenols in isolated cells.
