A) Like Q. robur (Fig. 9) has uniseriate and multiseriate rays, although only part of a multiseriate ray can be seen to the left. (b) and (c) have only uniseriate rays. (a) and (b) have tangential bands of axial parenchyma. Tyloses are present in (a), and tracheids accompany the vessels in (a)and (b). Fibres in (a) and (c) are strongly thickened. (c) Has consistently narrower vessel elements than (a) or (b), and has short radial vessel multiples. Fagaceae constitute a very natural family. There are two main anatomical groups as far as wood is concerned.

In Fig. 7 a carnation stem is shown cut off the plant just below a node. It is split longitudinally through the node, into the intercalary meristem zone. In horticultural practice, the split is often held open with a small piece of stick, until adventitious roots develop from the split sides. A large number of plants quite readily form adventitious roots from the nodes, whether split off the plant or not. Considerable use is made of this property in horticulture for propagation. Lateral meristems Lateral meristems are also used in techniques designed to propagate plants by cuttings and in grafting, or in promoting wound healing.

The primary wall is thin, and overlain on the side adjacent to the lumen by the secondary wall. The secondary wall is usually constructed of a series of layers, in which the microfibrils, submicroscopic, thread-like and usually cellulosic components are laid down. Microfibrils are often arranged in a spiral, wound along the long axis of the cell. The orientation of the microfibrils differs in the successive layers, each layer often reversing the direction of spiral winding of that in adjacent layers.
