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 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: x160 at 35mm size.
