Tubes of periderm were induced experimentally by wounding stems of Melia azedarach L., Ficus sycomorus L. and Platanus acerifolia Willd. This wounding stimulated the formation of periderm tubes around those strands of phloem fibres which were exposed to the outside atmosphere. The differentiation of periderm tubes inside the bark is a defence reaction by which the wound-exposed fibres are isolated from the living cells of the bark. The regulating factors of wound-induced periderm tubes are probably ethylene and atmospheric air.
