Despite the homogeneity of chlorenchyma, plants submitted to intermediate acclimatization showed cells that make up the mesophyll more organized, evident vascular bundles and more organized structured and epidermal cells.
In both grass species the injury mainly occurred to the chlorenchyma, which radiates around the bundle sheath.
Leaves entire, stellate Brocchinioidea chlorenchyma abundant Leaves toothed, stellate Navioideae chlorenchyma absent
Some quantitative characters were not taken into account because they increase with age; these include: adaxial and abaxial prominency of the main rib, number of layers of parenchyma cells, of fibrous strands under the adaxial and above the abaxial hypodermis, of layers of sclereids, of chlorenchyma and spongious parenchyma.

These changes could be due to (i) an increase in the proportion of the most readily digestible tissue types (stem chlorenchyma and phloem) (Ehlke and Casler, 1985), (ii) a reduction of the number of vascular bundles (Shenk and Elliott, 1971), and/or (iii) a reduction of the secondary cell wall thickening in the nodal regions of the stem (Klock et al.
Because of their stem-succulent nature and their extremely low surface-volume relationship, giant columnar cacti maintain a large proportion of nonphotosynthetic parenchyma, which lives at the expense of the relatively scarce chlorenchyma that is only found in the epidermis of the stem.
Histological investigations demonstrated that squash seed coat normally comprise five layers, including the epidermis, hypodermis, sclerenchyma, parenchyma, and chlorenchyma.
syphilitica, there are between three-five chlorenchyma layers and a continuous sclerenchymatic ring enveloping the vascular cylinder (Fig.
As common in other Poaceae, bamboos have similar characters of leaf anatomy, such as fusiform and arm cells in the chlorenchyma, not radiate mesophyll and two-celled trichomes of the Panicum type (GPWG 2001).
7 times as long as wide--#6), perigynium beak relatively long (beak at least 32% the length of the perigynium--#7), culm with chlorenchyma present between bundle cap and epidermis for at least two of three vascular bundles at the angles of the culm (#18), and distal portion of perigynium body only one cell thick (#21).
