Notes: A New Method for Marking Xylem Growth
Abstract:A method has been developed for marking the position of the cambial zone and differentiating xylem during the growing season. Minute injury to the cambial zone with a micro needle causes aberrant cells to form; these cells are permanently retained as a mark within the annual ring. Results of a study on Pinus resinosa Ait. indicate that cells capable of responding to this marking method can be pinpointed to within two cells.
