The hypodermis is the inner subcutaneous tissue that supports the upper dermal layer and is composed of adipose tissue, mainly consisting of fat droplet-storing adipocytes.
The intima identifies the organ as ectodermal, and the cells as hypodermis (Fig.
The sclerenchymatous hypodermis aids in decreasing water loss from the leaf because of the thickness of the cell walls and the reduction in airspaces.
In an evolving spiral, bacteria cause thrombosis of the nutrient vessels to the hypodermis causing tissue ischemia, worsening edema, and skin necrosis; ischemia then promotes the dissemination of the infection.
