Vorläufige Mitteilungen


In shoots ofLinum perenne apical growth was observed at both ends of the fibres. Their rounded tips, rich in protoplasm, protude into the middle lamellae of adjacent fibres or parenchyma cells. In addition to their apical growth, the fibre walls undergo symplastic growth with the walls of neighbouring cells. The formation of the pointed ends of fully developed fibres is described.
