Abstract

Xylogenesis consists of a cytodifferentiation sequence (Roberts 1976) that begins with cell determination and ends with autolysis of the newly formed tracheary element. Although the various cytological, cytochemical, physiological, and biochemical aspects of the sequence have been described, the overall process remains an incomplete puzzle Our information is fragmentary, and the interrelationships linking the events are completely unknown.
