Caption

Dyer's greenweed stem. Polarised light micrograph of a transverse section through the stem of a dyer's greenweed (Genista tinctoria) plant. This stem has eight ribs with deep grooves with hairs, which reduce water loss through transpiration. Under the thick-walled epidermis (outer layer) with thick cuticle are layers of palisade-like cells (red-brown) containing chloroplasts (chlorenchyma) for photosynthesis. The vascular cylinder is made up of (from outside inwards) a ring of phloem sieve tubes (red black alternating patches), a ring of cambium (brown black), and xylem (blue white). In the centre of the stem is the pith made up of large celled parenchyma tissue (white-blue). Magnification: x103 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
