            The figures presented here were selected to illustrate aspects of the cells and tissues of the cork cambium, cork, phelloderm and lenticels. The legends were written to complement the more complete discussion of bark presented in Chapter 17 (pages 351 to 367) in the textbook Plant Anatomy by J. D. Mauseth, published by Cummings & Hathaway.
