Behaviour of a Thread-like Apparatus in the Petiole of Mimosa pudica

Article metrics

Abstract

ALTHOUGH I have published several communications1–5 concerning the cytology of the thread-like apparatus in Mimosa pudica, these observations were carried out with vital staining and/or with fixation. For a full understanding of the subject, it is necessary to observe the non-treated material in the living state. In this communication, the behaviour of the thread-like apparatus with a phase-contrast microscope is reported.
