Kurze Mitteilungen


Oriented overgrowth (epitaxy) of the needle-like crystals of pentachlorophenol on the surface of the cell walls of parenchyma is described. By means of this epitaxy it is possible to obtain an insight into the orientation of the cellulose microfibrils on the wall surface of plant cells.
