Abstract

Morphological and anatomical characteristics of 2- and 4-year-old managed natural stands of G. scortechinii were studied. The morphological characteristics varied depending on age and height level of the culms. The cell wall thickness of both parenchyma and fibre were greater in 4-year-old than in 2-year-old culms. The frequency of vascular bundles was greater at the bottom and top portion than in the middle portion of both the age-groups. There was no difference in vessel diameter between the 2-and 4-year-old culms at the mid part of the culm wall. The anatomical structure in bamboo had a very strong correlation with the moisture content and basic density. © KFRI 2007.
