Xylem-Specific Expression of Arabinogalactan-Protein-Like Genes
Woody plants are biologically different from their herbaceous counterparts because of their perennial habit and ability to form wood, an extremely ecologically and economically important trait. Wood is by far the most abundant component of the terrestrial biomass and therefore has a significant influence upon the planetary carbon cycle and global climate. Wood is also a leading industrial raw material and an important component of the global economy.
