The general wound response of the foliar organs of Citrus was studied using leaves of a large potted lemon tree. This plant stood at the southeast corner of a building, outdoors, during the experimental period and received full sunshine a large part of the day. Following wounding an interval of about ten days elapsed before there was a division of the living cells beneath the collapsed dead tissue. The cicatrice, which was not complete until the close of the third week following wounding consisted of eight to ten layers of cells.
