Starch depletion and anatomical changes during the rooting of Castanea sativa Mill. cuttings
Review articleOpen access

AbstractStarch depletion during rooting of juvenile chestnut cuttings was examined. A marked depletion occurred in the first 3 days following hormonal treatment; in untreated control cuttings there was no significant effect during the same period of time. Anatomical changes during the rooting-process were also studied. Greater starch depletion following hormonal treatment could provide the energy necessary for the great cell proliferation observed at 3–5 days, the organization of the primordia and the differentiation of the new xylem.
