anatomy mantle cross-section cortical (epidermal) cells mean shape-ratio CCq

Individual rations for each cell have to be used for calculation of the mean. Only one position after the point should be noted, e.g. 3.5. The dimensions of cortical (epidermal) cells with Hartig net are extremely variable depending upon their distance from the root tip, whether they are formed by the outer row or by the second row 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 dimensions of cortical cells. Possibly, this feature can be disregarded as there is considerable variation within the mycorrhiza as well as between mycorrhizae of the same fungal species on one and the same host.
