Libriform cells are thick walled and vessel cell walls are perforated by pits. White-berried Mistletoe (Viscum album). 51 THE RISKS OF INSTABILITY: ECCENTRICITY A Enhanced stress also affects the process of cell wall formation.

Silver birch (Betula pendula). Bifacial cambium growth is typical of dicotyledons. The active layer (cambium) is situated between xylem and phloem. 3 SECONDARY GROWTH: ADVANTAGES AND RISKS The primary meristems form vascular bundles, which are continuous from the root tips to the stem tip.
