Anatomy of Monocot Root
(Monocot Root Cross Section Under Microscope with Diagram)
Ø The anatomical features of a monocot root can be studied through a cross section (CS) through the root.
Ø Anatomically, the monocot root has been differentiated into the following parts:
(5). Vascular Tissue
(6). Conjunctive Tissue
Ø Epidermis in the root is also known as epiblema, piliferous layer and rhizodermis.
Ø It is the outermost layer in the root, composed of closely packed parenchymatous cells.
Ø Usually, the epidermis is single layered with thin walled cells.
