Air-spaces in the roots of some monocotyledons
- 14 Downloads
Summary and Conclusions
The origin and development of air chambers in four monocotyledons studied fall under three categories:
(i) where the chambers arise and develop lysigenously, (ii) where they arise schizogenously and enlarge lysigenously, and (iii) where the chambers arise and increase in size schizogenously.
The causes to explain the formation of air chambers as given by earlier investigators have been discussed with reference to the materials studied.
