The vascular cambium, a lateral meristem responsible for the radical growth of woody plants, has long been a subject for active research in both temperate and tropical regions. This work provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the vascular cambium and represents an up-to-date review of the knowledge accumulated over the last twenty years. The cambium has been variously defined as follows: "The actively dividing layer of cells that lies between, and gives rise to, secondary xylem and phloem (vascular cambium)" (IAWA ); "A. The cambium has been variously defined as follows: "The actively dividing layer of cells that lies between, and gives rise to, secondary xylem and phloem (vascular cambium)" (IAWA ); "A meristem with products of periclinal divisions commonly contributed in two directions and arranged in radial files. Structure of the vascular cambium It is generally agreed that the vascular cambium is composed of a layer of cells only one cell thick, and that all of these cells are meristematic cambial initials from which cells of the secondary xylem and phloem are by: 1.

Formation of Secondary Xylem and Secondary Phloem.   The vascular cambium generates the xylem and phloem of the vascular system, which are used for transport and support. It is a single layer of meristematic cells that undergoes an expansion during the transition from primary to secondary growth. Consequently, knowledge of the structure and function of the vascular cambium is fundamental to understanding the growth and development of woody plants. The book . Secondary growth is a characteristic feature of dicotyledons. Most of the monocotyledons lack secondary growth. Also refer: Anatomy of Monocot And Dicot Plants. Let us go through the secondary growth notes to explore the types of secondary growth in plants such as vascular cambium and cork cambium. Secondary Growth in Plants.

Vascular cambium, a lateral plant meristem, is a central producer of woody biomass. Although a few transcription factors have been shown to regulate cambial activity¹, the phenotypes of the. The 11 chapters of this book, each with its own bibliography, deal with: The nature of the cambium; Cell structure and growth cycles; The origin and development of vascular rays; Variations in the size of fusiform cambial initials; The storeyed cambium; Modifications to the cambium; Anomalous cambia. The thickening of stems in monocotyledons; Cambial activity; Experimental control of cambial Cited by: Other articles where Vascular cambium is discussed: tissue: Plants: herbaceous ones, consist of the vascular cambium and the cork cambium. They produce secondary tissues from a ring of vascular cambium in stems and roots. Secondary phloem forms along the outer edge of the cambium ring, and secondary xylem (i.e., wood) forms along the inner edge of the cambium ring.. In dicotyledons the ratio is variable and may be as great as 10 to 1. In an experiment Eucalyptus camaldulensis was exposed to labeled 14 CO 2 that was incorporated in secondary vascular tissues. The incorporation of 14 CO 2 indicates that the ratio of layers of secondary xylem and — phloem produced by the cambium is 4 to The cambial activity is related to rainfall and temperature in.
