Ø The anatomy of dicot stem is studied by a T.S. (transverse section) took through the internode of the stem.
Ø The components of cortex and stele are together known as Ground Tissue.
Ø Anatomically the dicot stem has the following regions:
b). Outer cortex
c). Inner cortex
b). Vascular bundles
c). Medullary rays
Ø Epidermis is the outermost layer, composed of parenchymatous cells.
