Abstract:Dormant buds in Acer saccharum Marsh. originate at the terminal bud scar and at the bases of lateral shoots. Those formed at the bases of lateral shoots are soon transferred to the main stem and persist for many years after the shoots die and drop off. A minute annual elongation apparently adds one set of bud scales to a dormant bud, so dormant buds are distinguishable from axillary buds by their smaller size at first and by the accumulation of annual elongations during later years.
