Development and persistence of sandsheaths of Lyginia barbata (Restionaceae): relation to root structural development and longevity

Shane, M; McCully, Margaret E; Canny, Martin; Pate, John S; Lambers, Hans

Description

Background and Aims: Strongly coherent sandsheaths that envelop perennial roots of many monocotyledonous species of arid environments have been described for over a century. This study, for the first time, details the roles played by the structural development of the subtending roots in the formation and persistence of the sheaths. • Methods: The structural development of root tissues associated with persistent sandsheaths was studied in Lyginia barbata, native to the Western Australian sand...[Show more]
