2001). Decreased radial hydraulic conductivity was correlated with increased suberization in the exodermis, endodermis and adjacent tissues external to the endodermis in roots of Agave deserti exposed to drying soil (North and Nobel, 1991). In pine roots of intermediate age, the cortex cells have died and likely are water-filled (Fig. 28). Older roots show secondary xylem and phloem tissues as well as an expanded pericycle and external cork cells. The epidermis, root hairs, and part of the cortex are destroyed by a cork cambium (Fig.

In some species the annual increments of phloem can be identified by the number of distinct zones of various types of cells. It is especially difficult to identify the annual increments of secondary phloem in gymnosperms. Although differences occur in diameters of early and late sieve cells, these often are obscured by pressure from expanding parenchyma cells. In false-cypress (Chamaecyparis) and thuja (Thuja), the early formed fibers of an annual increment have thicker walls than the fibers formed later.

The thick, spirally-borne adult leaves are sickle-shaped. Their petioles are twisted so they hang vertically. Adult leaves lack the heavy waxy coating found on juvenile leaves. In Ilex aquifolium trees the leaves vary from dentate in the juvenile zone to entire in the adult zone. Trees that show a small and gradual change from the juvenile to adult condition are described as homoblastic; those with an abrupt transition are called heteroblastic. A feature of the New Zealand flora is the large number of heteroblastic species (some 200 species).
