One series consists of small bundles lying inside the sclerenchyma ring at the base of each of the connecting bands.
In this group of species there is no segregation of sclerenchyma into an effective tissue.
Slight keel with sclerenchyma band: sclerenchyma at margin slight.
The minute inner filaments of sclerenchyma are never continued far up the stalk, and are sometimes wanting altogether.
sclerenchyma band extending all round the lower surface just inside the thick cuticle.
The Panicums also come here, and differ according to the disposition of the sclerenchyma sheaths around the bundles.
Keel with sclerenchyma at its apex, and a small band of the same at the margins.
Girders to the primary bundles, but not very strong: marginal and other sclerenchyma faint, as is also the cuticle.
In the leaves of grasses growing in dry situations the development of sclerenchyma is generally very considerable.
sclerenchyma at tips of the ridges dense: smaller bands below: strong at margins.
A supportive tissue of vascular plants, consisting of thick-walled, usually lignified cells. Sclerenchyma cells normally die upon reaching maturity but continue to fulfill their structural purpose in the plant. There are two types of sclerenchyma cells: fiber cells and sclereids. Compare collenchyma, parenchyma.
