Ratio of Fusiform and Ray Initials in the Vascular Cambium of Madhuca indica J.F. Gmel

Saima Bhat and M. Badruzzaman Siddiqui

Abstract:
The anatomical studies of the vascular cylinder revealed in tangential longitudinal plane have fusiform initials and ray initials arranged in non-stratified manner like majority of dicots. It is generally believed that fusiform initials constitute more than 90% of the vascular cambium but contrary to above reports, 60 to 83% fusiform initials have been observed in different tropical tree and in certain extreme cases their proportion may fall as low as 25%. Keeping in view the above variations, the present communication aims at presenting the proportions of the fusiform initials which was found to be 65% mean tangential area in the cambial zone of presently investigated species.
