Plant Biology question

  • #1
In a tree undergoing secondary growth, many of the tissues will split or even be shed, due to the increase in girth of the stem. Which tissues will be affected in this way? It they are lost, how will replacements be made?

Could anyone please help me with this question? Thank you.

This appears to be a homework question. Quy Perhaps you may want to post this in the biology section for homework. (listed as Other Sciences under Homework) There are many qualified folks there, who will be pleased to assist you. As Dave mentioned, you also will need to make a reasonable attempt to try and answer your question before helpers will assist you.

Here is one way you might start. Describe what do you know about the structure of a living tree trunk. Can you name the different tissues and their function? Which of these tissues do you think may be affected (in your question)?
