unit: µm

The term 'radial' refers to a direction from the central cylinder to the outer parts of the root, consequently an approximately perpendicular direction to 'tangential'. A range of values should be determined, e.g. 5-10(-10) µm; the value in parantheses stands for an exceptional dimension. These measurements are of subordinate importance and to date not applicable for a delimitation of similar species. (For the determination process with DEEMY the exceptional values cannot be included.)
