Early attempts at understanding cellulose orientation and cell wall layering described the multi-layered structure

-ray pitting in A. indicum. We were not able to examine slides of Ailanthoxylon mahurzarii , but its combination of features supports its assignment to the Simaroubaceae. To consider the effect of vessel-ray parenchyma pit features on the systematic placement of this fossil, we conducted searches without

The present study deals with roles of gibberellins (GAs) in gravitropic responses of woody sterns of horizontally-positioned, 2-year-old seedling of Fraxinus mandshurica Rupr. var.japonica Maxim. The application of uniconazole-P, an inhibitor of GAs biosynthesis, to stern nodes at various concentrations significantly inhibited not only righting the sterns but also wood formation. The application of GAs (GA3 and GA4) in combination with uniconazole-P negated the inhibitory effect of the treatment of uniconazole-P alone. The GAs alone did not affect wood formation, however, both GAs increased wood formation on both the upper and lower sides of horizontal sterns with an increase in the concentration of combined uniconazole-P. In all of the seedlings, tension wood was formed on the upper side of sterns. The application of uniconazole-P alone at various concentrations did not inhibit the formation of tension wood fibres.

To estimate the effect of drought intensity and duration on radial growth, we used monthly values of the Standardized Precipitation-Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI) ( Vicente-Serrano et al. 2010 ). This multi-scalar drought index is calculated using precipitation and
