Abstract

This paper outlines briefly certain aspects of foliage leaves that are related to the form and distinctive functions of these organs. Conclusions from earlier papers on conduction problems of leaves are noted in connection with a preliminary report on the patterns of the minor venation in dicotyledon leaves. In most of these studies on leaves it has been necessary to use serial sections cut both transversely and in the plane of the blade. The latter, or paradermal sections, are favorable for the study of all tissues, seen, as if looking through the blade. They are especially helpful in the interpretation of mesophyll organization and for the measurement of vein spacing.
