Variation in density and its relation to anatomical properties in bamboo culms
, Bambusa bambos (L.
First is culm
bending-type lodging which occurs when plants fail to resist bending pressure, as is often seen in the upper internodes of rice affected by strong winds and rain.
The moisture content of the evaluated species is close to the desired maximum for the energy generation that is 30% (Table 2), constituting an advantage when using the culms
for direct burning, with statistically significant differences between the evaluated individuals.
An additional five 3-year-old culms
from Longchuan County were selected for determination of variation in fiber morphology (fiber length, lumen diameter, and tangential diameter) within one internode length.
Samples of 10 mm x 30 mm x thickness of culms
wall obtained from the middle portion of internodes 6.
Next, the culm
was removed from the vice, flipped to a horizontal position, and returned to the vice.
leaf blades erect; foliage oral setae absent.
Influence of principal environmental factors on shooting, growth and abnormal culm
rate of Bambusa ventricosa.
The aerial part of each plant was introduced into a separate microwave-resistant polyester bag, thus forming an aeration compartment, while the culm
of the plant was isolated with polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon) tape commencing at a height of 2 cm above the substrate.
Factors found to affect shoot and culm
yields included the number of culms
of different ages in each stand and the age of culms
Due to a communication about a flowering event of a Bambusa tuldoides stand cultivated in San Isidro, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, we recorded measurements and information on the stand, culms
, nodes, internodes, branching pattern, flowering branches and inflorescences.
In this method, the culms
of elephant grass were cut at their base and the leaves at the nodes and end of the culms
