Ecological features of the leaf structure and plastid apparatus of Far East Araliaceae species

  • Yu. A. Khrolenko
  • O. L. Burundukova


The structure of assimilative tissues of several Araliaceae species that grow in the Russian Far East is studied. Considering the specifics of the area, life forms, and quantitative leaf anatomy, a comparative description of their adaptivity relative to light and water modes is given.
