The vascular cambium, a lateral meristem responsible for the radical growth of woody plants, has long been a subject for active research in both temperate and tropical regions. This work provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the vascular cambium and represents an up-to-date review of the knowledge accumulated over the last twenty years. Chapters cover origin and development of cambial cells, phenomena of orientation in the cambium, seasonal and environmental influences on cambial activity. There is also a discussion of the evolution of the cambium in geologic time.
