Anatomy Anatomical features of the mantle Anatomy of the mantle in longitudinal section Anatomy of the cortical cells in longitudinal section

anatomy mantle longitudinal section cortical (epidermal) cells mean tangential length CCt (ECt)

unit: µm

Only a whole number should be given as a value, e.g. 65 µm. The dimensions of cortical (epidermal) cells with Hartig net are variable depending upon their distance from the root tip, whether they are formed by outer rows or by inner rows of root cells, and also regarding the tree genus involved in the formation of ectomycorrhizae. Up to now, only very limited information is available about the influence of the fungus on the shape and dimensions of cortical cells. Possibly, this feature can be disregarded.
