Atlas of Stem Anatomy in Herbs, Shrubs and Trees: Volume 1 by Fritz Hans Schweingruber,Annett Börner,Ernst-Detlef Schulze

By Fritz Hans Schweingruber,Annett Börner,Ernst-Detlef Schulze

This paintings, released in volumes, includes descriptions of the wooden and bark anatomies of 3000 dicotyledonous vegetation of a hundred and twenty households, highlighting the anatomical and phylogenetic range of dicotyledonous vegetation of the Northern Hemisphere. The first volume largely treats households of the Early Angiosperms, Eudicots, middle Eudicots and Rosids, whereas the second one concentrates at the Asterids.

Presented in Volume 1 are microsections of the xylem and phloem of herbs, shrubs and bushes of 1200 species and eighty five households of assorted existence different types of the temperate sector alongside altitudinal gradients from the lowland on the Mediterranean coast to the alpine area in Western Europe. the worldwide point of view of the findings is underlined through the research of 500 species from the Caucasus, the Rocky Mountains and Andes, the subtropical region at the Canary Islands, the arid zones within the Sahara, in Eurasia, Arabia and Southwest North the United States, and the boreal and arctic zones in Eurasia and Canada.

The presence of annual jewelry in all lifestyles types demonstrates that herbs and dwarf shrubs are an exceptional software for the reconstruction of annual biomass construction and the interannual dynamic of plant institutions. the typical precept of the anatomical expression of secondary development is a key consider figuring out evolution and model procedures in all lifestyles types, from the two cm tall whitlow grass (Draba arctica) within the arctic to the forty m tall beech (Fagus sylvatica) in primary eu controlled forests. The research opens tremendous fields of analysis for dendrochronology, wooden anatomy, taxonomy and ecology.
