Caption: Lime wood. Light micrograph of a transverse section through wood of the Lime tree, Tilia sp. Here, tracheids (non-living xylem) are seen across an annular ring. This is an annual growth ring of the Lime. In each ring, the cells become gradually smaller (from bottom to lower centre) until a dense line signifies winter, followed by a rapid change to large cells of spring. Ray tracheids run from top to bottom of the image, perpendicular to the wood vessels. Illuminated by crossed polarisers. Magnification: x100 at 35mm size.
