praecox rhizome showing the xylem (XY), phloem (PH), tracheids (TR), and helical thickened vessels (HV).
(28) This finding is consistent with the observation that gymnosperm wood mainly contains tracheary elements known as tracheids, whereas angiosperm wood contains xylem fibers as well as tracheary elements consisting of vessels and tracheids.
Tracheary elements conduct water and are of two types: vascular tracheids (Figure 4) and vessel members (Figure 5).
Structured phytoclasts seen as small dark microstructural equant grains and lath-shaped tracheids whose external form with sharp distinct edges indicate a structural particle but with no visible internal biostructure (Fig.
Specifically, the xylem tissue of infested trees has higher concentrations of ray tissue [6, 7], thickened cell walls, and shorter tracheids [8] that have encrusted pit membranes, more closely resembling the pit membranes associated with heartwoods [9].
This latter, of 150 to 200[micro]m of diameter (micrographs of Figures 5(a) and 5(b)), has a cylindrical shape associating helicoidal microfibrils called tracheids (micrographs of Figures 5(c) and 5(d)).

Paper made from softwoods show fibers and tracheids (long, thin cells with pits and tapered ends); paper made from hardwoods will show tracheids, fibers of various lengths and thicknesses, and vessel members (large-diameter cells with pits and open ends) (Petraco & Kubic, 2004).
