Abstract

A simple experimental method for studying the differentiation of vessel endings is described. Vessel endings are induced and their location is determined experimentally along an internode by a complete horizontal cut. The frequency of vessel endings is very high in the first 5 mm immediately below the cut and their number declined sharply in the basipetal direction. Patterns of the secondary wall of complete and partly dissolved vessel endings are demonstrated.
