 Chapter 6. Apical meristems.

           The figures presented here were selected to illustrate aspects of meristems, primarily the apical meristems of shoots and roots. Micrographs of other types of meristems are presented as well. The legends were written to complement the more complete discussion of collenchyma presented in Chapter 6 (pages 79 to 107) in the textbook Plant Anatomy by J. D. Mauseth, published by Cummings & Hathaway.
