Abstract

Considerable study has been devoted to the ontogeny of tobacco in terms of gross morphology and metabolism. In comparison with the number of such studies we have is yet but few data on the ontogenetic anatomy of this important plant. Consequently it seemed desirable to investigate certain aspects of developmental anatomy characterizing the several distinctive growth stages of tobacco. Since preliminary observations had given some indications that marked variations in stem tissue occurred during growth, an experiment was undertaken to trace these changes throughout the life cycle.
