A Note on The Appearance of Sclereids From Western Hemlock Inner Bark1

Otto Goldschmid, Max W. Folsom

Abstract


Scanning electron microscopy was used to illustrate the appearance of individual sclereid cells isolated from the inner bark of western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla). Interlocking of adjacent cells to form a solid sclereid group and presence of pits are seen clearly using an SEM rather than a light optical microscope.
