An anatomical study of some woody plants of the mountain flora in the Tropics (Indonesia)
Acta botanica neerlandica , Volume 17 - Issue 2 p. 151- 159
An anatomical investigation of 68 wood species, mainly from the mountains of Indonesia, was made. The mountain species show less specialized characters viz. tracheids and/or scalariform perforations are common, whereas in the lowland species tracheids are usually replaced by woodfibres and scalariform perforations are completely wanting. A correlation with taxonoraical classification is absent. The possibility is considered that these characters have a relation to ecological circumstances.
