Discussion in relation to previous studies

Carlquist 2007 analyzed much material and studied in detail the ontogeny of successive cambia of 11 perennial species of 11 genera representing a wide range of growth forms. The present study does not include the whole range of anatomical structures. Not represented are species with vascular strands (Stayle-ria neilii) or species with scalariform inter-vessel pits.
