5 Vascular Bundles in stems In a cross-section of the stem, vascular bundles are arranged differently in dicots (in a ring) and monocots (scattered). In dicots, cambium of adjacent vascular bundles gets joined forming a cambial ring. The cell division activity of the cambial ring forms sec xylem towards inside sec phloem towards outside, constituting secondary growth. See next slide

6 Secondary growth in stem gives rise to concentric annual rings You can determine the age of a tree by counting the number of rings in its cross section. of a tree gives its. How old is this tree? Within an annual ring, cells formed during wet season are larger than cells formed during drier season. Thus an examination of annual rings in tree cross- sections can tell us about past climate.
