Project: Anatomical modifications of bamboo culms due to ageing.
01-OCT-01 – 31-DEC-06
Anatomical structures determine the quality of the finishing product. In this study further investigations on cell wall lignification of fibre and parenchyma cells during maturation of some industrial important bamboos will be done. Furthermore, the different tissues and the proportions between the diffeent cell types will be evaluated, especially the amount of parenchymatous ground tissue and the amount and location of silica cells.
